I Am Grateful!

I am Grateful!

I have always been the little girl with dreams bigger than her imagination. I wanted to shift mountains, because in my mind I knew I could. Luckily I grew up a little and she realised that I can shift mountains because I have an amazing group of people right behind her.

January is drawing to an end and I am taking this time to reflect. More so than the end of 2019. I made sure that my New Year’s Resolutions are set and that I finished everything off before the clock struck 00:00 on the 1st day of this magnificent year. This time it is the start of my new life.

I have resigned from my day job, as some may call it, to fully pursue me. I have done it all, from being a shampoo lady to an office assistant to working at a call centre to pay the bills. I was faced with a lot of hurdles that I needed to overcome. It was easier to be in a routine of working for somebody else. I knew my salary would be paid out at the end of every month and that I did not need to worry about where I am going to find the money from to pay my rent. It is was easy. It was comfortable. 

As time went by I fell deeper into that soft cloud. However, the soft blanket started to suffocate me. I knew I was not doing what I wanted to do and I knew that I needed to get out.

For the past few months I have been conditioning myself for the “Big Day”. I worked on my mindset, my fears. I worked a lot of extra hours on the start-up of my business. At the end of last month, I decided to take the leap of faith.

Today I am reflecting on all the difficult days, the streams of tears and the fire in my soul that’s been wanting to be released for too long.

I am so fortunate that I have the opportunity to take the leap of faith for the lone fact that I have an amazing support system right behind me. I know each and every one of them will be there if I fall, and I know they will help me through the tough days.

This one is an ode to you- all of you. You know who you are.

Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for noticing my potential. Thank you for teaching me in all fields I am lacking. Thank you for holding my hand. Most importantly- thank you for giving me the freedom of letting my wings soar through the sky.

I am forever indebted to you!

Yours truly
