Before my most recent pictures across my social media platforms I hadn’t posted for 7 days.
A week is long for me not to post and I’ll tell you why. As an entrepreneur continuously building and growing the Miss Trish brand, (by myself), it is critical that I keep on going. However, in a situation like mine, and working for myself it can be mentally exhausting.
I already have prior responsibilities to deal with on a daily basis, so that takes up so much of my time. Then, I still have to produce and post, if I want to continue to gain amazing followers, customers, and readers like you.
YES, I did watch the Social Dilemma, but that had very little to do with my decision. I wanted a break. A mental BREAK, because in my mind, I felt broken. Something inside of me was no longer connecting to my well-being. So, I put my phone down,
& reconnected with my mind, body, & soul.
I hadn’t journaled in forever. I hadn’t read the book I started, I didn’t exercise, I didn't cook. You can easily beat this down to lack of time management, however that was far from the case. I was avoiding myself, in order to make sure my audience was entertained. You can sum this up even further to: I was taking care of everyone else but myself. ←- Which started to be the theme of my life back in 2014.
After many times of stopping and starting, I decided to put myself first for a change. I then started to gain traction from my audience, which resulted in the dangerous cycle of putting myself last again, but this time in a different way.
I decided to keep my decision quiet, because I personally feel like not everything needs an announcement. There is power is silence and moving to the beat of your own drum. I also wanted to re-ground myself and make smarter decisions.
What I learned on my 7 day mind and self cleanse:
I REALLY AM ENOUGH. - For any and every situation
I HAVE AMAZING PEOPLE AROUND ME.- Yes I sure do
AT TIMES, I NEED TO THINK BEFORE I MAKE MOVES - Sometimes, I work harder than I should
I NEED TIME TO MYSELF- Because it’s extremely important to my life. Point, blank, Period.
I CAN AND I WILL WITH NO EXCUSES I will not let fear, anything from my past, or negativity allow me to STOP anymore.
Let me add, that I cried, I laughed, I stopped and smelled the roses several times during those 7 days. I came to grips of truths I had been denying, I had conversations that needed to be had, and I faced myself in every single way. It was a learning experience and all in all:
I LOVED IT!!!
I will do it again for a longer period of time, as it was helpful and needed for my journey.
