I'm going to get vulnerable with you...
When you make the decision to go after what you want... be it jacking in your job and booking a round the world ticket, moving to a new country, breaking up with your 'perfect' boyfriend, starting your own business...
You are going to come across some jealousy. From the people you least expect it from. And it's going to fucking hurt.
It could be just a few sly words or it could be all out, in your face, smack that bitch down, jealousy.
My friend list has gotten smaller and smaller as I've went through life, as I've made decisions that have taken me out of my comfort zone. Decisions outside of THEIR comfort zone.
I've had people say shit about me on social media, gossip behind my back, spread rumours about me because I went after my goals...
But you know what? The friends I've made on my life journey, the ones that are with me today, are world class. They are the best people I could have ever asked for and I wouldn't have met them if I didn't push forward with my goals.
I have friends around the world. People I can call on. People I'd fly around the world to be there for.
Imagine if I'd listened to the gossiping meanies. I'd still probably be working in a Fish Factory!
I wouldn't have traveled the world in my corporate career, I wouldn't have started my own business.
The jealous people who feel the need to constantly bitch about me can keep on bitching and doing what they are doing because the way I see it.. it says more about them if they feel the need to constantly belittle me or anyone else in some way, shape or form.
I LOVE what I do. I LOVE the people who have become my family.
I LOVE who I've become.
I don't have time for people who feel the need to waste their time on shit gossip. If only they focused that time on themselves, I'm sure they would like themselves a bit more.
Their behaviour drives me further forward, provides content for my business, makes me stronger because I just laugh it off, or write about it So maybe I should say Thank You!!!
We live and learn, the key is to LIVE. Don't let anyone dull your sparkle, gorgeous!!
If there is something that you want to do but you are scared about what other people will say or think... Fuck 'em and do it anyway! Because I'm sure as hell they won't be on their deathbed in years to come and thinking about you and that step you didn't take.
I don't want you to be sitting when you are 80 and wondering what if. What if I did this. If only...
I don't want your life to be any less than you want it to be just because of what some other person will think or say.
You get to create your own path and fill it with people you love and who love you back.
I never thought that was possible. But it really is.
