There has been a whirlwind of events within the past couple of months and I felt it was necessary to let you in on the excitement before 2018. I always took the cliche saying “life is a roller coaster ride” with a grain of salt until I recently experienced some trial and triumph. When I first created this blog, believe it or not, I was in a bit of a pit. Right before I left for my trip to Italy I experienced a terrible car accident, leaving my car completely totaled. I was hit head on by a taxi driver going north on Broadway in NYC. Thankfully, no one was injured in the event but my car had been completely demolished. Simultaneously, I was apartment hunting because I wanted to be closer to my favorite city. Not to mention, getting around South Jersey without a car is merely impossible. Now, throw a breakup into the mix and you may as well just check yourself into your local clinic (LOL). My point is, sometimes LIFE GETS REALLY F*CKING REAL. We all come out the other side stronger than we were before, right? Which gave me a reason to post this for anyone going through a difficult time. Everything that is happening around you will eventually make perfect sense. We are all human and could all use a pick me up once in a while. I believe sharing my own experiences will impact the next babe going through a similar hardship. If you are one of them, I hope this post finds you well!
TAKE TIME FOR YOU. If you are like me, you will throw yourself into work head first and not come up for any air. You need your rest. Often times we make the wrong decisions or react because we are just simply exhausted. Taking time to pamper yourself is so vital to your overall health and well being. Get a facial, massage, exercise or just do anything that makes YOU feel better. If you need to turn off social media for a few days or just take a day of rest, DO IT. It will only make you feel more empowered and energized for the next day. The most powerful boss babes know when they need a day of rest so they can kick ass tomorrow.
CHANGE YOUR SITUATION. As women, we feel like we can change the world. The harsh reality is we can’t. The only thing we could do is change the way we look at the situation. I know it is easier said than done, but believe me you will eventually get really good at it. It feels good! If you’re unhappy, leave the situation you are in. Leave anything that doesn’t build you up. If you don’t like your current job, LEAVE. There is something more fulfilling out there for you. If you don’t like your career path, change it. You are unstoppable. There are endless opportunities if you can see the light and be open to receiving it.
GAIN PERSPECTIVE. There is always a powerful take away from any pit of a situation. Maybe you didn’t get the job you interviewed for? Hearing the word no is never easy to accept in any situation. Rejection is an opportunity for growth and I hope it pushes you harder next time. It allows us to figure it out and create a better plan on what we can do next time. Accepting our flaws in a situation will allow us to grow and become the CEO of our life.
Now it is time to REGAIN CONTROL. Recognizing that you have the capacity to overcome any obstacle in life is very empowering. You have control over your business, relationships and your life. Create it just as you want to see it and don’t let anything or anyone hold you back.
