Bridging the chasm between Entrepreneur and idiot. Growing up is hard to do!
First and foremost, thank you for stopping by my little slice of the web verse. My name is Jessica. I am at the breaking point, the Apex, the culmination of the years of trying to please everyone and make everyone happy except myself. Just recently I am starting to feel that all the things I’m looking to achieve are right at my fingertips. I have worked really hard to get to the point that I am at, and I’m able to admit (in this blog, not out loud, eeeeeeeek) that I’m scared. Like really scared. What is there to possibly be scared of? It is growing harder to reverse engineer what exactly has happened in my life to make me scared of the future. When I say growing harder, I mean harder to distinguish which particular instances, or maybe its multiple situations in my past. How about all of the things I couldn’t control, the hard things the world threw at me to make me stronger. It took me a long time to realize that the past is a lesson, not a hindrance. It's not a ball and chain holding me down, but a hot air balloon lifting me up. I've had a hard time admitting and talking about my experiences, but I am realizing that more then a few people have walked in similar shoes. That maybe I can do for someone, what many people have done for me.
Now is the "Golden Age" of my era. My Revolution.
How do I do that? I was never one to ask for help or let others be even marginally responsible for my achievements. Selfishness and stubbornness it was. We need people around us to inspire us, motivate us, criticize us, and mentor us. I have had the blessing of meeting people who wanted to see me succeed. Who wanted to help me make healthy decisions for my life and for my business. I am still myself though let's not forget. I will always be sarcastic, and witty, very friendly, slightly bitchy, and always smiling. I will make mistakes because I am human, and I am not perfect. I want to share what I have learned, and things that get me through this crazy world we live in.
This blog is simple, but not simple. Life is not simple, it is malleable. Love, business, family, friends. I want to share things, and introduce you to people who inspire me for the better, and have shown me invaluable things that have helped me grow. Hopefully, some of it is related, humorous, enlightening, educational, and most of all inspirational. It's inchoate, sporadic, and developing.
Welcome to my ADD.
Stick around and hang for a bit,
but most of all Thank you.
