Finding your passion. Your adventure in discovery works…you find it. And it feels so good!
Then the battle begins.
One of the hardest things about being a Bitch is fighting for what you want. Along the way you’ll have to listen to everyone telling you how they would do it and what you are doing wrong. Some people, successful people, you should listen to. As long as it doesn’t interfere with your integrity. Yeah…that’s another thing you want to fight for. Your beliefs. Giving up your integrity on the path to success is losing yourself on the way. It can be incredibly frustrating to keep on keeping on. You know what else it can be?
Fighting alone for what you want. People may be supporting you in body, but spirit is an entirely other matter. And just when you think you can’t add another little curve ball to all this? You get someone questioning your tactics on how, what , why and where you are going. Nice, huh? To make matters worse? The very people who question your every move would never have the courage and drive to do what you do. Enter more frustration and loneliness. You may find yourself asking why you are fighting so hard. No one understands. I hate myself. I want to die. (dramatic sniff!) It leaves you so ripe for Miss Drama Queen. You know what makes it all worth while?
Mmmmmm….sweet, sweet validation. Victory. Goal met. This one little word pushes you to do even more. Accomplish even more. Trust yourself and your decision-making more. Appreciate more. Grow more and understand more. Love yourself more. Not in a bad way, a good for your confidence way!
The first step? Finding what you really want in life of course! So get on it. Write your list of wants and desires. Then hop on the road to Validation. It’s the adventure of your life.
