In order to have what you really want, you must first be who you really are. Stop looking for approval and be YOU.
Something has been weighing heavy on me because I’m always trying to hold back when it comes to my business. Writing has always been a release for me but every time I’ve written a blog on the ”Life Of Lola” section of my website, I delete it. I over think it. I remember someone’s advice, ”God doesn’t belong in business.” Did I say ”God” too many times? Did I say I prayed again? Will I say something that might hit a nerve with someone? Will people not support my business? Will companies not want to work with me? Will people think I’m going to preach to them during their treatments? Am I admitting too much?
I’m done. I hope those who know me in person know how authentic I am, even when it often comes with the chance of embarrassing myself. I’m a strange one. I often don’t think before I speak and give out way too much information about myself. Though, my intent is NEVER to offend anyone. So why would I hold back in my personal blog? That’s not me.
Don’t get me wrong, if you come to me for skincare or hormone coaching, I’m not passing out Jesus cards (though, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind🤷♀️🏻). But, when I’m sharing personal stories or feel compelled to write my thoughts out, I want to feel free to speak my truth. With that, comes judgment. I am aware of that. I just don’t know why I suddenly started to care. Fear. Fear of people not supporting my business because they don’t agree with me. And that’s ok. It’s a HUGE WORLD and there is someone for everyone. I always somehow find my people, whether they praise the same God, have the same beliefs as me, or have completely different views. You find your people. This fear had really started to take the joy out of blogging for me. I don’t want to fear how I come across to other people. I don’t have that fear in person, so why would I on my business page? I don’t share my thoughts about life so you purchase a moisturizer. I share with the chance of connecting, as a release for myself, and possibly helping someone, even if its just one person. Either you like me, or you don’t. As my grandfather always said, ”Who the hell cares!?” I almost did. And then I realized, that wasn’t me. You can choose to read only about skin care or join me while I laugh and cry my way through life. But I will be real and I can’t apologize for that. 💙
