Hello Glam & Sassy loves! Have you ever noticed that we are all looking for the same things in life but at different times? When my life has been a series of right- place-right-time scenarios all feels right in the world. When this is not the case, it seems like achieving these things is more of a struggle. What if while we are waiting for the timing to be right, the very thing we are looking for passes us by?
As an entrepreneur, my business volume is a series of ebbs and flows. It takes a certain tenacity to withstand these dips and the uncertainty of it all. The reassuring thing is that a lot of it is within my control so it really is up to me how hard I want to hustle. And that’s exactly what I just did. I cherry picked the most desirable boutique on the most prestigious fashion avenue in the world to work while I continue to grow my own business and make some exciting changes. I knew if I wanted to achieve these goals, there was no time to waste.
So why do we wait until we are “ready” to be in a relationship thinking it will just happen when it is supposed to? I have started businesses from nothing such as franchises from a signed document and personal styling services in a city where I knew absolutely no one. With either of these, or even my new amazing job, if I went through the motions of my day thinking these opportunities would just appear, I would have missed out. While I have always been a career driven, self evolving individual, I also realize it is more rewarding when you have someone to share it with and cheer each other on along the way.
The raw truth is this. I want it all. I want the successful career, the fit body, the circle of friends and family…and I put in the work for all of it. None of it just happens. I also want the guy I am with to be all about me. You know those movie moments where the couple finally figures it out and ends up together (usually due to one removing one’s head from ass) yeah, that’s what I am holding out for. I want the butterflies, the goose bumps, the heart leaps. I also want the struggles to overcome, the agreeing to disagree, the “I may not like you but I will always love you” moments. A true partner to do life with. So while I won’t settle, I also won’t risk missing him along the way. Ready or not.
What are your goals and how are you achieving them? I reply to all comments so feel free to share! Let’s connect on IG @glamandsassy
