Journaling the Journey: Entry 2

Running off of 2 hours of sleep, and I'm not complaining.

I thought (keyword: thought) I would sleep but I couldn't. Why? Because I'm just so excited and inspired to work on my personal brand and a couple of other paid projects. Yes, paid. 

Glory to God.
— Praise Break

It's a blessing to be able to get paid for things that don't even feel like work. Having the freedom to set my own schedule and accept projects on my own terms. I'm grateful. 

So I'm up at the office (That's when you know its real) putting in work. I'll be sure to link to my finished projects at some point as well. 

Let the creative juices flow!

Lord, use me to lead and inspire other entrepreneurs to fearlessly create the life they want.

Amen,

Simone Danielle.

Why aren't you in a relationship?


BONUS CHECKLIST INCLUDED. STAY TUNED.


I swear, I get this question at least once a week. It's becoming draining. 

 The pressure from family and friends is definitely up there. And If you've ever had the privilege of meeting my mother, you know how intense she can be. I've even had a couple of patients try to set me up with their sons, nephews, brothers, etc. #toomuch I appreciate everyone's concern. Really, I do. But I'm totally content in my singleness... at least for now.

What? No. Can't Be. She lying. For real? YES!

Relationships require a lot of work. And at this time, I need to be focusing my energy toward working on myself. Follow me, here: 

  • How can I require xyz from someone, if I'm not offering xyz?
  • What is it I need to work on within myself?

Too vague,  Okay. Let's be clear! 

  • I want a Godly or God- fearing man, but how's my relationship with God?
  • I want a man who can handle his finances, however, are my accounts where they should be? Does my budget balance? How is my portfolio trending?
  • I want a man who is ambitiously achieving his dreams, am I ambitiously knocking out my life goals?
  • I want a man with a nice car and his own place, have I achieved such possessions?
  • I want a man who truly loves me, yet am I willing to become vulnerable enough to allow him the chance to do so? Am I emotionally available?
  • His body needs to be A1, yet is my body model status? curves tight? 
  • I want a man who is a leader, but can I submit and follow?
  • I want a man who respects my opinions, do I respect his?
  • I want a man who treats me like a Queen, yet do I return the favor? 
  • I want a man, am I a woman? Do I embody the characteristics of one? (Some may need to reread.)
  • I want my man to be my best friend. Yet do I know what it means to be a  best friend to another or even myself? 

(SN: This post is in first person. Nevertheless, you may need to question yourself.)

I could go on and on, yet the point remains the same. It starts with myself. Do I have a lot to offer, of course! But my work isn't done. At least, not for the relationship I want. Both parties need to be bringing quality to the table. One sided relationships are never everlasting.

So why aren't you in a relationship? Because the energy needed for a relationship, I've decided to focus it towards personal growth and self discovery. 

I'm not saying not to date or not to be in a relationship. 

I'm saying be the reflection in the mirror. Establish in yourself, what you want to see in your partner. And your dream person will come!


BECAUSE YOU'RE AWESOME!

Here is the Bonus Checklist as promised. Be honest with yourself, for best results.

P.S. If you appreciate this free bonus, I would be super excited if you shared it with your friends. Thanks. Continue being awesome!

 

 

 

 

 

Journaling the Journey: Entry 1

God is so good y’all!

When I just think about how true that statement is... it's overwhelming. I mean no matter the situation, you can always find something to praise and give God glory. Amen!

Today, I had the day off. And I spent it working on my new MSI (Multiple stream of income) I know for sure I want this to be a business. I've put a lot of work in already, and feel as though I have a solid foundation of knowledge. 

But what’s holding me back?

FEAR!

I'm afraid I'll fail. Especially, since running this particular business or establishing this MSI would require me to put myself out there. There being in the fore front. There being in the public's eyes. I mean what if this venture doesn't get received well. 

I've never been one to win popularity contest. I'm more of the you either like me or you don't type. I held the President, VP, or Treasury titles not the Homecoming Queen, if you catch my point. 

Now, as I'm writing this entry it's dawning on me: 

Everyone’s not going to like you. And that is okay. You can not make everyone happy.

In other words, the ones who do like you, support, and cheer in your corner, you know chose to be there. They are the ones who genuinely care for you. And that feeling (knowing people are in your corner because they want to be) beats winning a popularity contest and not knowing who truly cares. 

Realistically speaking, I'm only 21. If this whole new business venture doesn't work out as planned than at the very least I can say I tried. Better to fail forward than to never act. 

Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint at heart.

Lord give me the strength!

Amen,

Simone Danielle.
