This past weekend was my birthday. I had a wonderful time with my daughter Dominique and one of my best friends Rosa. Although the weekend was amazing, I had a few moments of sadness, because I thought about my mom, which had she still been here I would have called to share with her how much fun we were having, non the less it was amazing and I know that she was looking over us. I went to the casino and that was fun, but that is something that I would normally do with my husband and mom, so that experience wasn't the same, but I still had fun hanging with my girl Ro.
In between all of the fun stuff my daughter had on the itinerary, and it was packed I had some time to get a little rest. I had even more time to reflect, because she did all of the driving and with the flight time that gave me the opportunity to think about some things.
After the passing of my mom I realized that life for real can be short and death can be sudden and unexpected. I also realized that every day is a gift and that I should be enjoying my life more and enjoying time with my family more whilst doing only the things that I love. When I took a long hard look at my life, I realized that I wasn't using my gifts correctly and that I was still chasing money. I love podcasting and I love helping people and I have these platforms set up, but I find myself chasing the new shinny objects, which is absolutely dangerous when you are trying to accomplish something. I know that I love starting new things, so in my moments of reflection I had to figure out how to use my gifts to always start something new without starting something new all whilst doing what I love.
So this morning I did an assessment of my business and I already do podcasting almost daily, which allows me to tell new stories everyday. I also realized that I already offer this amazing package called the NoiseMaker Spotlight that I definitely have not marketed correctly. Now this service allows me to do what I love which is podcasting, create new profiles and add those profiles to my TV network. Doing these profiles also allows me to help business owners get their business out there.
I know that I will be doubling my workload, but this to me is part work and mostly passion. I consider 2/3 of what I do passion and 1/3 is work. That's because I love what I do.
So I shared this with you just to let you know that sometimes you have rest, so that you can reflect and restart for a fresh new beginning on your journey.
Thanks for stopping by.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
