I have been feeling quite literally beaten down lately, from life, work, and my current side projects. I have once again found myself falling down that slippery slope of self loathing and comparison that continuously steals my joy and i know that it does but i can't get myself to stop. i find myself feeling envious of those around me who have figured out what they're doing, what their life plan is, what direction their career is going in yet i feel as though i'm steadily declining or at least it feels that way. i'm watching people who are truly hustling and getting their brands off the ground and in a sense i'm kinda like a baby bird who's searching for her mommy to guide me in the right direction. its really a humbling place to be, it's tough to be scraping the bottom in a sense and i almost hit *delete* on my site and gave up on the idea of using this space as a creative outlet. i realize that no one will take me seriously UNTIL i start taking myself seriously, i have to commit myself to this space and start working at it 100% or else what's the point. its funny that my last post was about the '5 things i learned from blogging' yet i can't even listen to own advice. i can't expect people to want to follow along on my journey if i'm getting defeated at the smallest resistance. i have to learn how to shamelessly plug myself and to keep pushing myself even when people don't respond the way i hope for them to.
so for those who are going through similar thoughts that i am, here's the sign you needed.
YOU ARE DESTINED FOR SOMETHING GREAT.
DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF.
