They say that change is good. They say that change means growth and I’m all for growing but I also have to accept that there is a certain amount of pain associated with growth and change.
I see everyday things much differently through my forty-five year old eyes. Things seem much clearer. I used to believe that if I couldn’t figure out how to do something on my own than that meant that I wasn’t supposed to do it. I now realize that it’s important to learn how to increase the size of my team. No (wo)man is an island and I can’t do everything on my own.
November is filled with medical appointments. Filled, I say! Some for me, some for the kids. This happens every year around this time so I should expect to be poked and prodded but I just hate it. The good news is that my iron levels have increased significantly since February. The bad news is that the level is still slightly below what is considered healthy. So we’re trying something new to get it where it needs to be.
I’m tired of fighting with people. Just exhausted. People will tell you things because they think you’re crazy enough to believe anything. But is there really any point in arguing with someone like that? Where is the added value in that conversation? I just finished reading Russell Simmons’ book and my new motto regarding everything is, “Do You! Because I am definitely going to do me!” For real. I have too much to do to worry about foolishness. Way too much to do.
Life is good today. The sun is shining and my daughter is making dinner. Pause for reaction …
Here's something I read today that definitely has me thinking: No business book or business plan can predict the future or fully prepare you to become a successful entrepreneur. There is no such thing as the perfect plan. There is no perfect road or one less traveled. Never jump right into a new business without any thought or planning, but don't spend months or years waiting to execute. You will become a well-rounded entrepreneur when tested under fire. The most important thing you can do is learn from your mistakes--and never make the same mistake twice. (Scott Gerber, www.entrepreneur.com)
Was that for anyone else besides me? Tested under fire, huh? Sounds scary.I feel like I’ll be blogging less frequently. I’m just not in the mood and most of what I write is being jotted down in the fancy journal that the Original OldGirl blessed me with. My Dream Journal. Journey to a Dream. Everything goes there so I feel like I don’t always have much left to share here. Oh well … you know how that goes.
Have a great rest of the week!
