If you follow along with me on Instagram or Facebook you may have seen my YouTube video about my clarity tarot spread. If not, you can check that out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IoVktdFL60
That insightful tarot spread gave me the push I needed to get over my fears and put myself out there! Tarot is such a powerful tool! I just love it. I have been dealing with this god awful STUCK feeling for a very, very long time. I graduated from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition about 3 years ago and had these big dreams and goals. I had vision! My biggest, best idea was to open a juice/smoothie shop that had a coffeehouse vibe and would eventually serve small grab and go food items. I was knee deep into writing up my business plan and had so many ideas I couldn’t keep it all straight. You want to know what happened to my dream? FEAR. Fear crept in and ate me alive. You want to know what else happened? Someone took my dream and made it happen! No, no one stole my plans or took “my idea”, but they had a similar idea and are now the owners of a seemingly successful little juice bar with a coffeehouse vibe and a small selection of grab and go food items. They are even located in a space about 5 doors down from the one I sat outside and envisioned my dream (and wrote a small part of my business plan). I mean, holy shit, right? Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for that person who made it happen. I’m glad someone was able to create that space- but it should have been me.
I will not end up in that place again. I will not let fucking fear take over and keep me from creating something meaningful and amazing. I have things to offer and something special people need.
So, that’s what I’m doing. I purchased the domain for my website, I bought business cards, stickers, and made a YouTube video because the main thing I need to do is PUT MYSELF OUT THERE.
My hope was to make a video today which would have basically been everything I’m writing (typing?) but (of course!) I got sick and feel like shit and my nose is running like nobody’s business. Hopefully tomorrow.
Here is a list of goals I have for my up and coming business:
- Yoga Teaching Training (finally)
- Thai Yoga Massage
- Health Coaching (with a focus on cooking/eating/weight loss)
- Metaphysical Offerings (Crystal healing, chakra balancing)
- Expanding my jewelry making to more necklaces
- and last, but certainly not least: expanding my tarot knowledge
Like I said before, I’m not fucking around. You can like it or leave it, but do not get in my way because I’m going for it!
When have you let FEAR control you or keep you from fulfilling your dreams?
