Long post warning…I think this is like a mini sermon. I got fired up! This is for SOMEONE! Is it you?
Monday mornings are one of my favorite times now. WHY? Because on Monday’s, it’s been 2 days since the last time I’ve probably seen my new grandbaby. There is nothing sweeter than when I first see him in the mornings and he grins so big when he sees me.
I am forever thankful that I worked my way out of the cubicle. I used to dread Mondays! I dreaded those horrid florescent bulbs. I dreaded the smell of fish in the breakroom, too. Shouldn’t there be a law about people heating up left over seafood outside of their home? And oh….the man across the way who ate sardines every day. GROSS. Stop it already!
Knowing that I would be a Gigi one day drove me to working for myself. It’s true…I did it along side of my day job for a while, but gosh, it is sooo worth it. I worked myself out of a job, but in a good way.
I remember when I was in my 20’s, I thought, “I’ll have money saved up in a 401k to quit when I’m near 50”. Well, life happens and that for sure did NOT happen as I thought. If you are like me and you find yourself no where near having a secure bank account to quit your job, let’s talk! You don’t have to have one foot in the ground, with a sad face, and a lack of desire for the future. NOPE. That’s a bunch of lies you have dreamed up in your head.
I fought for this! I worked hard because I had a goal of being home to keep my grandchild. I feel that l’m finally succeeding in life because I finally changed the outlook of where my future was headed…I took charge! I can tell you this, it’s not going to come knocking on your door. Whoever came up with that saying was full of $hit!
I realized my WHY in life. You have to stop feeling like the guilty party, and please for the love of God… stop the rambling of 100+ excuses on why you are STUCK where you are. That’s BS! Plain and simple. You have a choice to do something about YOUR LIFE or sit back and take it. You’re sitting in the corner of the boxing ring and I’m the guy behind you cheering you on, throwing a towel around your neck, and shooting water in your mouth. GET UP AND FIGHT, DANGIT! You got this! Get up and knock the crap of anything that stands in your way!
YOU are powerful!
YOU can do AMAZING THINGS!
I believe in YOU, even if you think no one else does!
YOU can change tomorrow…and the next day…and the next day…and the next.
I didn’t wish for a huge luxurious house. I wanted FREEDOM…from the cubical, lights, smelly fish, and freedom from someone else’s schedule.
READY to do this? DING DING DING….it’s time to get up and FIGHT! #joinme
