Bolder Sisters, I have to tell you my truth. For most people, January begins with a boom. Most folks were excited, pumped up and motivated by their New Year’s resolutions and all the possibilities that a new year can bring. Me, on the other hand, I felt just the opposite. I didn’t feel motivated or inspired. I felt like I was in a slump. All the plans I envisioned at the close of 2017, didn’t really feel possible anymore. I’m not sure why or what it was all about, but I didn’t feel like doing anything. I felt like I had lost my mojo. I didn’t feel like writing, (and you all know how I feel about writing), coaching or planning the retreat I talked about all last year. I come home, eat, lie down, and then I would literally be on my phone for hours at a time, playing games. That was it and that was all. I felt stuck, unproductive and useless. Yuck!
I kept asking myself how do I get out of this rut, this funk? The only thing I know to do, whenever I’m lost, is pray. I asked God for the answers. I questioned why I was feeling this way. I wondered if Ms. Fearina was resurfacing with some new tactics to prevent me from moving forward. Whatever it was, I knew I didn’t want it. As I waited for God’s response, I opened up my new transformational planner, and there it was. Now I had opened my planner everyday since the 1st of January, but somehow I skipped over this page. I am sure that God had the perfect timing for when He wanted me to see this page. And it couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you Julian for this quote!
He led me to this page because He wanted me to know that my gifts aren’t about me, and I knew that but forgot. My Bolder Sister platform is about all of the subscribers. The women who come here, from all over the world, to get inspired, to be reminded of their inner power and fearlessness. I have to encourage you to shine, but I can’t do that if I refuse to shine. It’s time to go get it, and I’m thankful that God showed me why I have to go get it! All that we are put on this earth to accomplish is bigger than us.
I know that now. I also know, that the lack of motivation I experienced was normal and many people go through that. Here’s the key, you have to pray through that, you also have to talk to those you love so they can help you get back to you. And lastly, you have to remember the call on your life is bigger than you!
Now, Bolder Sisters, I challenge you, as I always have, to rise and shine and go get it!! Don’t waste your talent, your gifts, your purpose. There is someone, somewhere who is waiting on you to deliver. You, are waiting on you. If not for any other reason don’t disappoint yourself.
