Tonight as I am unwinding and getting ready for bed I am in a MAJOR state of gratitude. As most of you know I lost my job in March. Since then I have been doing a lot (like a TON) of soul searching. What do I want my next step to be? Where do I want my life to go? What do I want my life to be?
I still don’t have all of these answers, but what I DO know is I want to be my own boss. I want to put my blood sweat and tears into my success and my wealth, not someone else’s. I spent many (too many) years giving a “company” my all, I was married to my career. After I was laid off in 2012 there was a shift, I was no longer willing to work crazy hours and sacrifice my life! Being let go in March 2014 created a gigantic shift for me! When I was let go I literally felt like the breath had been knocked out of me, I had these horrific thoughts of being homeless (with Gateau in a crate) and just being all alone across the country from where I grew up. Clearly, these were immediate fear based thoughts. But, this is what ran through my head. Then, what I thought about was; well, maybe this is a blessing in disguise. And I truly believe it is. DO NOT GET ME WRONG I dearly miss my full time paycheck and I am beginning to panic about my bank account; but I do know I am right where I am meant to be!
Ok, so back to my amazing day – it started (very) early with a networking event for small businesses. I had a great time and I am met a bunch of successful business owners! I then proceeded to look at a property that could be a potential real estate investment deal (yay, I wasn’t even searching for it – IT literally found me); I don’t yet know if it IS a deal, but hey I took action and I am looking into it! I then proceeded to meet with a life coach – which was seriously one of the most amazing hours of my life! He truly SAW the genuine me! I am not sure why I am still so in awe when my genuine self shines through, but I am! I then ended my night by being a guest on my amazing, fantabulous friend,Garrett Miller’s radio show where I did an overview of LegalShield!
The bottom line is today I truly felt empowered and in control of my future. This is a feeling I had before I interviewed for the job I really wanted, and a feeling I haven’t had since I didn’t get it. Today I feel 100% genuine to myself. And to be honest with you, I sometimes have a hard time articulating exactly what that means. But there are times when I truly feel more genuine and today was one of those.
So, as I unwind and get ready to (hopefully) sleep (the scaffolding from the construction is the death of my sleep <I am convinced someone is going to climb up and break in – yes, I know – DON’T’ ask!>); I am over the moon grateful for sooo many things! I am so grateful for my CA Real Estate Investing Club, for my LegalShield business and business partners, for the start of my 5 Rings endeavor, for all of the opportunities that are in front of me ready to grab! For Garrett Miller (garrettmiller.com) and his radio show. And, for him letting me be a guest tonight to educate his listeners on how LegalShield can help them afford to KNOW their rights! And as always (literally every single day and night <not kidding>) I am so grateful for my family and friends (East & West Coast) who support me through thick and thin! THANK YOU!
There is way more to come MY story, and I thank YOU my blog followers for taking this journey and supporting me!!
