Real talk …. just keeping it real – because I don’t want you to think I really have it all figured out.
It’s currently 6:30am, I’ve been awake since 3am. You know those mornings, something wakes our soul up at some random time, and your body laughs at you and says “you just THOUGHT you were getting some extra sleep today”. It’s one of those times in life, where you have LOTS of things going on, lots of things coming up, you are trying to figure out how to line it all up so you don’t drop or miss anything. Surely, i’m not the only one. Right? Tell me I’m right.
Since 3am, I flip flopped like a fish out of water for an hour, I got up and went to the other room and surfed TikTok (yeah, i get sucked in there), I created and sent out about 15 invoices for the boutique, brain stormed and did some research on black Friday sales, sent my assistant some notes on some thoughts, and now… I’m emptying my brain for the moment. For my other Girl Bosses out there… this one is for you.
How in the world do you map out all of your ideas, thoughts and dreams? I currently have 3 projects in my brain that are taking up way too much space. How do you build action plans and really stick to them? If I ever wondered where my kids got there ADHD from, I have quickly learned the answer over the last 5 years. How in the world, do you stay on track and keep the plates spinning? Well, maybe not just spinning – how do you keep them spinning and still move forward and make progress?
My brain is officially on overload. I think it’s maybe the feeling of the end of the year quickly approaching and knowing how busy it gets. My goal every year is to not get buried in the daily details and do things to make a bigger impact…. and then… well… my brain kicks in and I feel like I’m drowning again.
What you might see from the outside is a crazy girl who has multiple businesses and seems to be pulling it off pretty well. Real talk – how i feel?? A little girl still playing in a big kids playground and just trying to find that clear path to balancing it all out and really making progress. To my fellow Girl bosses, we never stop dreaming, we never stop hustling… we might just stumble a little along the way.
Here’s to each of you that woke up WAY too early with the squirrels running wild in your brain. Grab another cup of coffee, pull your big girl panties on, and let’s go do this!!
All my love
