I’ve been working really hard lately. I’ve been giving up my silly, frivolous, much-needed girly weekends away and evenings of testosterone dependent entertainment.
It’s been that way for a while now.
After my promised self-enforced-year-of-solitude, I have made some pretty big changes my darlings.
Yes, that’s right, I have dared to hang onto my dreams. I have finally taken the time to nurture and grow them into something real. Picture a wild wisteria vine making everything old, beautiful once again.
What is it that you want to change? I’m not talking about superficial cucka like the last five pounds or a boob-job to make your girls a little more perky. I mean real change. Big, scary, I-don’t-know-if-I-can-really-do-that change.
Thinking of starting a new business like yours truly? Wanting a new job where your leadership and skills are finally recognized? Want to pack up and move to another country? Is it time to finish your degree or start a new one?
It may be time for a life remix. Instead of standing at a natural threshold in fear, I highly recommend taking that leap of faith.
My advice for anyone who needs to do a life-remix:
1) Dream. Dream hard. This might include pulling out your old projects, photo albums and remembering the excitable, idealistic kid you once were. When you find your happy place, stake a claim and return often.
2) Talk. Talk. Talk. Talk to your friends, the person next to you at the café, in line at the supermarket, and your colleagues. Put it out there, and see what comes back. Filter out the negative, and let the cream of your dream rise to the surface.
3) Educate yourself. Learn about small business, and how your dream might be something that you not only enjoy, but others can benefit from as well.
Wishing all of you joy, meaningful success, and of course, enough bourbon, fun and fabulous gal-pals to help you understand how rich you really are!
