Well….this isn’t something I thought I would share with you. This isn’t exactly how I like to show up.
But building a business is fucking hard and sometimes it gets to me. I’m at year 6 in my business and I still have these low moments.
Let’s shift gears today and get fucking real about what building a business really looks like – even for me.
In the six years that I’ve been in business, I don’t actually know if I’ve ever felt like this before. I’ve been really struggling these past few weeks.
It has been a rough year for a lot of us, myself included. The collective energy in the universe right now is incredibly intense. There is a lot of divide, a lot of suffering and frankly it’s become a complete mental burnout.
The reason why I wanted to talk about this is because I just want to tell you that it’s okay. If you’re feeling incredibly affected by this, if you’re feeling job burnout, emotional burnout, mental burnout…it’s okay. All of our lives have been uprooted and things look so different right now than they did six months ago.
I find myself worrying about things that I frankly never thought I would worry about. I think it’s getting to me and it’s probably getting to you too. And I just want you to know it’s okay to give yourself permission to feel all the feels.
At first, when I started to feel unmotivated and melancholy and just not giving a fuck, I was really hard on myself and I was shaming myself a lot. I pride myself on being incredibly motivated, getting stuff done, and showing up for you guys to support you. So when I’m unable to do that, it wears on me.
So if you are feeling unmotivated or de-motivated, or just that lingering melancholy, anxious, and you just don’t give a fuck it’s okay.
The entrepreneurial rollercoaster is difficult as is. There’s a lot of ups and downs in what we do and what we’re trying to do. And 2020 had really made it that more difficult.
So if you’re struggling, I want to tell you that I’m with you. I feel it too. I’m struggling.
I believe something great is coming though. I think things are shifting into a collective and what I really hope is what we’re going through is some sort of great awakening towards something better. I am trying to stay optimistic in that sense, and I know that any time we need to kind of achieve a next level consciousness in the collective, it’s not going to be easy and there’s going to be a lot of darkness. Remember that it’s always the darkest before we see light.
