Don't Sweat The Small Stuff
So much has been happening lately. I’ve been doing a lot of procrastinating, a lot of worrying, and a bunch of nothing. I’ve been so worried about making the right decisions, the most strategic decisions that I haven’t been making any decisions. I have been, as they say, sweating the small stuff. I’ve taken the leap of faith, making some major mistakes, and learning as I go, but there is something making the mistakes that I haven’t been able to shake. Last week I made a mistake that cost me $450, that may not sound like a lot to you, but let me tell you honey it sure was a lot to me!
It’s mid-summer and I have yet to design my Fall 21 collection, nor have I even thought about my spring 22 collection. I have been so wrapped up in selling the Spring 21 collection, getting store placements, planning content, being present in my relationship and dealing with my 3 going on 31-year-old daughter that I haven’t been able to breathe. I haven’t been pouring in to myself; hairs looking a mess, nails not done, eyebrow barley on fleek and my outfit game has been seriously lacking lately. I’m constantly thinking when will I “catch a break”. The thing is do we really “catch a break” or do we allow ourselves to have one?
So, as I am typing this blog post I am getting my hair braided, followed by a manicure and pedicure. Then maybe get my eyebrows done, oh and did I mention my car I not starting so I am taking an uber to all these places. (talk about cashing out lol) But I’ve noticed how much I sweat the things I can’t control. I can’t control anything in my life except how I react to it. I can’t control my toddlers melt downs, how fast my hair grows, who buys from me, if buyers will like my product or what will happen tomorrow. It’s such a simple concept, but one of the hardest ones to abide by. Sometimes we create our own stress and nightmares trying to control everything. I know it’s summer time, but try not to sweat the small stuff. Find the best in everyday (I currently do not do this, but I’m working on it) do the best you can with what you have, TREAT YOURSELF, the world won’t end if you spend money and LIVE LIFE! The best days are always ahead of us, we just have to get into alignment with them.
