Find Your Way Back
Ever feel like you have strayed too far from your path. Do you have these goals and this mission in life but you allow the lack of self discipline to keep you distracted?
I often find myself questioning am I on the right path. Is this the path I’m supposed to be on? With these people, in this place, doing these things? If I can answer no to any of those questions and I have to stop and reevaluate what am I doing.
Knowing your why is first and foremost. Doing the work that it takes to understand your purpose here on earth, in this universe is key. How do you know where to go without a map? Why are you going there. What’s going to be there when you get there. These are questions that I had to ask myself constantly. Almost a daily review of the things that I’m doing. By no means I’m not perfect and I am not gonna sit here and say that I follow every rule every time. But I will say that I’m constantly compelled to do the right thing for myself and those I’m here to support.
My why is to create a physical spiritual and emotional network to cultivate the creativity in others so they can share their gifts and talents with the world. If you follow me on social media you all know that I’m big on supporting black creativity & businesses. I make sure to support each and every business that I find not only monetarily but if I can share their information with other people that cast the net to show and prove that there are people out here for you. I am able to give feedback& I’m able to share my experience with reviews and further boost that business into the atmosphere. Along the way I’ve learned a lot about doing business, for myself and for others, and anytime I can share their knowledge of the benefit.
A new way to express my why is supporting single motherhood. I found myself in this place for quite some time across my life and here I am again however on a different position. I think that many other single mothers are. Or is, I have calculated knowledge and I have accumulated enough experience to be able to support myself and my children without any additional help. That is something I’m very proud of and I also want to be an example to other mothers like myself. Letting go of the patriarchy and the societal standards that come along with motherhood and frame yourself as to what is not only to be a single mother but what it is to be a woman. I can’t wait to see where this part of the journey takes me.
Here are some things that bring me back and keep me on track.
Kill the self talk. Nine times out of 10 you are what’s it your own way. Allowing yourself to stay in a state of negativity by talking down on yourself will keep you further from your goals than any other obstacle you’ll ever face. Don’t let imposter Syndrome be the reason that you don’t get to where you’re going.
I love lists! Make a list of the things that you need to do to execute your why. I have a list for everything. It’s a part of my process help me accomplish the task that I need to accomplish. Include task that you need to accomplish to keep you on your journey.
Keep a notebook handy to jot down ideas to get them out of your head and onto paper. Whether these things are emotional or spiritual or tangible items There are still things that you need to do to ensure that youre accountable.
Meditate and pray on these things take these things to God, to the higher power that you believe it. Understand that once you put something into the universe it will conspire to make it happen but you have to put it into the universe. Bring these things into your conscious mind through quiet time. Read materials that bring your motivation and that inspire you and that keep you informed on your way. There is a lot of guidance in the quiet time.
Now there’s nothing to it but to do it. Work your list, one day at a time in conjunction with your quiet time and find your self back on the track. Do a daily review that will help you stay there and don’t forget to be grateful for continuing to do the work that you were here to do.
