About a year ago, I felt like I had everything, I was on top of the world.
Then, I got sick. Really sick. For over 6 months. I couldn’t get out of bed for 3-4 months.
I lost weight, muscle mass, became anemic, fell behind my self growth and couldn’t work on my business.
But I had a lot of time to think about my life…and had thoughts and asked myself hard questions like:
– What do I want from life/what’s my purpose?
– Who are my real friends?
– What kind of people I want to surround myself by?
– How my current 9-5 job brought out the worst in me for many reasons…
– What am I holding off because of fear?
My animal “fight or flight” instincts kicked in and I decided I had to figure myself out.
So being sick was a blessing in disguise because I had the time to really reflect on these issues.
I learned what my purpose is, I realized who my real friends were, I reached out to people I want to be surrounded by, and left my old job and started a new gig as a digital marketer/analyst and launched my business.
Almost nobody thought it was possible. I know this because I’ve seen the look on people’s faces when I tell them this story.
Now I know that defining success should be on your OWN terms, and you should achieve it by your OWN rules, and this is the only way you will build a life you’ll be proud to live (inspired by female entrepreneur Anne Sweeny).
And I’m only scratching the surface. More things to come in the near future.
A big shout out to my friends and fams that have always believed in me and had my back.
