Back and forth? #deuces

“Stop going back and forth on your ideas because of fear. You’re confusing the universe. Decide what you want and stick with it. You’ll notice things starting to shift in your favor.” #bossbabe (trademarked)

I could not agree more. This literally hit me in the face last week; now is my time and I’m thankful.

For the past two and half years I have been back and forth in my work “sit-e-ation.” After one job didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, I focused on my family for about a year and then decided to go back to work May 2017. Guess what? The company was bought and that story ended in severance pay.

Was this the final sign to really push through on the small business front? Or do I grind and find yet ANOTHER job? We have a family of five so what does one do?

I started to teach and take on projects here and there with nothing on the 9-5 job front coming through. So I continued to work on my business. After a while, I noticed more opportunities- and then more- and then more.

Throughout this process I continued to look for work, projects, and prayed for guidance. I hustled for clients and taught at a junior college with hopes of finding a j-o-b soon.

Then it hit me: STOP GOING BACK AND FORTH.

I’ve had doubts because of fear, because of what others think I should have been doing, or because of all the luxuries I see of others, comparing myself (big no-no). It definitely had me confused. However, in my heart, I knew what I was supposed to be doing but continued to go back and forth.

No more. We have to trust ourselves enough to know we can do it with prayer, a plan, and determination. Don’t confuse yourself or the universe. Stick with what you want to do and go hard. You will have doubts, you will get tired, you will want to quit and take the easy way out (present company included). But don’t shift. From this point on, it’s going to be about Taylord’d Events & Media.

So here’s a big arse #deuces to back and forth; FAVOR has showed up.

Are you paying . . . rent?

This is a no drama and no KRAZIES zone. It takes up time and for those in our lives that create the drama, they aren’t paying rent – so time to move on out.

Case in point – you hear all about the woes of a friend again, give the advice again, and the cycle begins again! What? Are you paying rent in my head, taking up brain space, to help you figure it out . . . AGAIN? Nope. You’re being evicted.

We love our family and friends. But these repetitive conversations seem to do nothing to help change their situation. They take time out of our day – the same time that could be used catching up on your O Magazine, painting your nails, or how about just doi3DNotice2ng nothing. I have three kids. I don’t’ even have enough time to deal with their lovely personalities.

I will always, however, try to help my loved ones, with limitations and the bossiness I carry apparently. I like to call it assertive (tee hee!) When drama approaches, I nip that right in the bud. We all have our own “ish” and I’m not sure I can deal with your “ish” and mine too. But I still love you :o)

So for the next draining conversation headed your way, politely hand them the eviction
notice.  It’s tough but ultimately the person on the other end will, hopefully, love you for being candid, leave you out of it, and figure it out on their own. #Deuces.

. . . Because the sun always comes out after the rain.
