To say NO to someone you love so dearly and seek approval from makes you feel guilty and ashamed as if you are committing a crime, and it makes you feel cruel and insensitive. To say NO, in reality, is taking a big risk of being rejected and dismissed as someone who is unaccommodating, and sometimes, “selfish” by someone else’s standards. There are so many emotions and thoughts that run through your whole body that you may feel physically ill.
No, I am not dying...
I realized today that I have been living inauthentically with regards to my dreams and goals. To realize this is a good first step, and to be able to work on the very things that stop you from reaching your goals is the next logical thing to do, EXCEPT, I have no plans! I lack a plan. I have decided that the next two weeks, will be a time to reflect on my goals for this year (My dreams with a deadline), and the values that I want to work on this year.
Doubt comes in many different shapes and sizes, as well it manifests in our actions, or shall I say, inactions. Doubt can show up in our thoughts about our ability to reach a certain life or business goal.
To face your fears, you need to be completely open and vulnerable and to being true to yourself. You must be willing to let your guard down and be able to accept the truths that come with being authentic.
There are many areas in our lives where we are vulnerable, and we tend to hide them thinking that we are showing our weakness. Ideally, as humans, we need to feel strong and need to have our strong suits show up in all areas of our lives.
Being mediocre takes less effort, but you can only see the difference between mediocrity and world class when it is too late.
Most of the time, when we have stories about ourselves, we tend to ignore it, or even dismiss it. We even hear ourselves having a conversation in our head before we make decisions. What most don’t recognize is that these stories are exactly what creates our self-limiting beliefs.
We tend to always think that we have a lot of time to do the things we want in life, however, we also know that life is short and it is never too early, nor too late to start a legacy.
I learned that to be at peace with oneself is the most valuable gift we can give ourselves, and our families and loved ones. Being at peace gives out an aura of self-confidence, self-love, self-respect and a feeling of joy that cannot be described.
Living with intention is at the heart of being present in every moment in our lives. It is making a conscious effort to mindfully choose how you want to spend every waking moment, how you fuel your body, your soul and what thoughts you allow yourself and choose to fill your head, because as we all know, our thoughts become our conversation that dictates our feeling and our life.
It is not always clear to us what our purpose is, however, what is clear is that we are all here on this planet to fulfill a purpose. We are not born in vain, we were not born to live and die without impacting those around us.
Being the CEO of my business and a mum requires that I take on more than I had planned for in a day, especially when you put your house up for sale! However, one thing I have learned recently, is that a CEO does not trade their time for money...rather they trade money for time. That being said, and with being overwhelmed, I realized that I cannot be of incredible service for my family or my business! I started delegating tasks to others... I learned to let go of many things in which I once thought I was the only one that knows how to do, or even worse, I am the best at doing them. At first I thought it is very uncomfortable, and I had to double check everything that was being done.
I was working hard trying to balance my time, my kids, my family and my business. This was unpleasant, and I was exhausted. My health started taking a downturn! That is when I had a wake up call. I did not want to fall into a trap of being unhealthy ever again. I wanted to remain strong and in control, but I realized that the cost of being in control is far too expensive. My life with my family is priceless! No amount of money can make up for my health being lost. I started hiring help. I hired help with my business, to do the tasks I know are my weaker points. I also hired home help...Next on my list...Maybe a chef!
Letting go of the control of things I do not wish to complete has never felt better! The results have also been rewarding in many ways.
- I am relieved from the stress of mundane tasks
- More tasks are being accomplished perfectly and on time
- I have more time to spend on my business
- I have more time to be where I want to be with the loves of my life!
- I am enjoying the freedom I feel with letting go.
Are you overwhelmed? Do You crave this time freedom? What kind of help would you hire to relieve you of the tasks you hate the most?
I would love to hear from you so please share and comment below.

Working in the Corporate world, has its perks, but in reality you are not building your dream, rather you are building someone else's dreams and you are living with TDOS!
What is TDOS? Toxicity, Depression, Overworking, Stress! (P. Greenlaw)
Most parents in today's society are working hard to earn a living. Most families are forced into leaving their children in a stranger's care in order to make ends meet. While both parents are out working, moms especially miss out on important milestones in their children's lives, feel enormous guilt and are mentally, emotionally and physically drained. In order to compensate for the lack of time spent with their children, parents and mothers are working harder to save for the future in hopes of having more time with their children. Current economic state, and lack of job stability is forcing more parents to take on work in toxic environments causing them depression, leaving them overworked, underpaid and stressed!
