Keep Moving Forward – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 79

Keep Going

For the past few days, I’ve been pretty open and honest because, let’s face it, there are some people out there who are just plain evil.  People who have ill intentions toward others and will stop at nothing to satisfy their needs at the expense of others.

I shared my thoughts on what happens as you are building a business, the emotions that are involved and the importance of finding inspiration.  It’s also important to have an outlet – someone to talk to or something to express your feelings.  I’ll admit, for me, that is something I struggle with on a constant basis.  I let people in, poured my heart out and it was used against me; so there are times when I am very guarded.  At the same time, you need someone to talk to about your feelings, otherwise you’ll go crazy.

When things get tough (and believe me they will), there are going to be times when you

want to throw in the towel, give up and walk away.  It happens to all of us, and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.  You can tell them I said so.  If the path you’ve chosen is truly the path you wish to travel, it always comes back to your WHY.  Revisiting your why daily keeps you on track, helps you to regroup and to have that laser sharp focus and keep the end in mind.

What has been your biggest struggle lately?  Did you feel defeated?  Lost?  Did you question yourself?  Wondering if it will ever be fun again?  Find someone you trust, share your feelings and that person could very well help bring you back on track, just by asking the right questions.  This was the case for me today and I was brought back to the light and back on track.  It’s pretty amazing the events that have taken place since that conversation.  It truly is powerful once you clear your mind and regroup.  Things start to fall into place and things start happening.

Realize people, events and life happens.  You’ll get quite a few curve balls thrown your way.  Find an outlet that helps you unwind and then get back on the horse and keep going.  You’ve got this.  You can do it.  Believe in yourself because you’re doing it.

Just keep going.

On My Own…Again and Moving Forward – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 61

Holding Down the Fort

This afternoon, I drove hubby to the airport to head back to Alberta.  It’s something that never gets easy or what we get used to.  It was great having him home, even though I was gone for part of his stay.  Thankfully, it wasn’t an emotional send-off.  The boys were home and they said their goodbye’s there.  For me, it’s not that I don’t get emotional, but I just don’t show it.  This is our life, and for now, this is what we have to do to move forward.  We don’t like it, but, we are making it work because we HAVE to.

This go around, my resolve is different.  The promise is clear, and I know what needs to be done.  It’s hard taking care of the boys on my own, while maintaining a household, spedning quality time with the boys, running a business, and not lose my mind in the process.  I’m actually looking forward to the next few months and seeing how much I will grow as an individual.  As I stated, the promise is clear to me, now more than ever.  This is temporary; a sacrifice that we must endure in order to reach and exceed my goals.

I am welcoming the challenge; embracing the change ahead and will continue to move forward with that no matter what mindset.  No matter what is thrown my way, I will overcome it.  No matter who isn’t supportive, I will perservere.  No matter what happens, I will not stop.  I will keep going.  Why?  Because the promise is clear that when the dust clears, my family and I will be one unit and we will be in a position where we will be stable.  It’s going to be a tough road ahead, and I am ready.

I hope you’re ready for me!!!  Otherwise, step aside!!!
