This is a strange time right now... one of those possibly once-in-a-lifetime moments where we’re all going through the same thing.
So, an important message: hang in there, and don’t lose faith.
Today I want to talk about adjusting to our new reality.
There’s a lot of fear and panic in the world right now, which I understand.
I’m a pretty optimistic person, but even I’ve found myself dwelling on the future and feeling confused and down about things from time to time.
So I wanted to share a guide to surviving tough times... for when things feel confusing and out of our control, or when we’re not sure what will happen next.
Today I want to share about my business journey. Specifically, I want to show you how long things can take.
Because we massively underestimate this. I know so many people who give up on their dreams because it’s taking longer than they think.
A spot of reflection...
Last year was tough for me, in a number of ways.
I’m not going to talk about everything that went on; perhaps I’ll cover it in a future post - and some of it I’ve mentioned already.
A friend of mine back home is going through a really tough time right now.
And as I live abroad, I haven't been able to do much to support her.
I was looking at my son today, and thinking how much of being a mom is about balance.
I was watching him play, as he lined his cars up and made little “brrm, brrm” noises, and I was filled with an overwhelming sense of love.
And other times - as I’m sure you can understand - it’s super tough.
Sometimes I write a newsletter I’m really proud of: I’m pleased with the content, and confident it will help people.
And I might get zero response to those newsletters!
My in-laws stayed with us for three weeks over Christmas... and while it was lovely to see them, having guests for three weeks is tiring!
I'm starting this post with a sad tone, but there's an inspiring message I want to get across.
