Thank you, everyone, for at least reading my very first blog post. I hope you will return, but if you do not, I appreciate you taking the time out to at least see what Goins Places is all about. If you have not already, please take the time to read my about me page to get to know me a little more.
We all have different lives and choose to live them as we please, well at least I hope so. I enjoy being a leader in my personal life, and my career but I am flawed beyond measure. It is so easy to get caught up watching what goes on over social media, but I promise you life would be so much easier if we only compare ourselves to well, ourselves. I only want to be the better version of ME.
I was planning my month out using my planner recently and the challenge for June is to Stop comparing your behind the scenes to someone eles’s highlight real. It challenged me to unfollow any social media accounts that made me feel “less than” and I challenge you to do the same. I will admit though that most of the people I follow inspire and motivate me to put my thoughts into action. I really am connected to some BOSS BABES!
I am super guilty of obsessing over an idea once it’s there, I own that. Own your flaws, even if its comparison because that my dear will strip you of all your happiness if you allow it. I am guilty of sometimes being a loner and hiding it very well. I can be a social butterfly (or pretend to be), but I can also act like I am the only person in the world aside from the people who live in the house with me of course, can’t get away from them (haha). Another flaw of mine is doubting myself. Sometimes I just don’t think I can do it. But somewhere in the back of my mind, I know I can. Picture this….brewing interest in your brain despite all the tangible and intangible accomplishments you have managed to accrue over the years, only to not follow through on it. Failing to take that leap all because you’re doubtful or afraid. AFRAID??? You are not, we are not, I AM NOT allowed to be afraid. “If you can think it, you can achieve it”. No, I don’t think our brains are powerful enough to produce a thought into action all on its own. Yes, you have to put in the work!! However, thinking it is the very first step to accomplishing whatever it is your little heart (or brain) desires.
My promise to myself
I promise first to be better to the people who care about me. My husband and kids are my world, but I am a daughter, sister, and friend also. I promise that no matter what I have accomplished if there is more I want and can attain, I will certainly set out to pursue it. We only get one chance at this life, I want it to be a fun ride. Roller-coasters would be no fun if they were just straight and narrow. I enjoy the ups, downs, bumps, backward motions and turns. They worked pretty well at getting me to where I am in this moment. My oh my has it been a roller-coaster, so much fun, some scary moments and jaw-dropping ones too. But I made it, I am here to talk about it and I plan to do just that here on my blog.
