What a week. So many epiphanies and opportunities. Not just for me but for everyone around me. Children included.
I love blogging because I get all the stuff out in my head like a beat friend listening but I don’t yet have so many followers so I can really spill the beans about things and it doesn’t get out. Bitter sweet I guess. 😁
McRush got his business taken care of so the baby making shop is officially closed! When I went in to the doc for my 6 week we discussed medication for my anxiety and I decided to take her up on it. Kera has been stressing me out because she’s not gaining weight although she is sucking my boobs dry every two hours. She is growing but not gaining. I am trying my best not to supplement.
Thomas is in karate, Sara leveled up in gymnastics and Bella may be going back in ballet. 🤞🏾 It’s looking like gymnastics for Ian, Ava, and Maia as well and Gabriele will join Thomas in karate. Reggie is back and is working local.
Now that we got babies and health out of the way. Chiiiiiiiile the tea!
iRush Printing is gearing up to start offering Direct mail options as well as digital marketing. I am so excited because this will allow us more financial space to hire someone so McRush can scale back. AND 👀 I am currently working on an app!!!!! I am so damn excited. Plus, I have apace to work with Nestlé so I am entertaining that.
This weekend coming I amattending a High Tea event so my mom is coming down to go with me. Hopefully I remember to take pictures.
My biggest takeaway from this week is actually something my mom and I talked about. Living in the now. So many times we don’t realize as we pray for more or better, that we are where we prayed to be right now. We cannot worry about what has happened or what will happen. Neither one of those moments exist but right now does. Yes, keep pushing and praying. But don’t forget that your blessing is in the right now.
Here is the part where I tell you what’s been going on in my life and perhaps a highlight that shifted into an epiphany for me or some life lesson that can be applied to business.
Why do I do it? Because I know that I am not the only one who wonders about the fate of their business or questions why I had children or what are husband’s for anyway. I know that sometimes people need to be uplifted, encouraged, or reminded. Because I have thoughts that I’d like to get out of my head without feeling crazy. 🤪 Because writing, although I don’t get to do it as much, is an outlet for me.
Did I ever tell you guys that my mom used to lock me out of my room. She said I spent too much time in there reading and writing. It was not healthy for a young girl to not socialize. Look at me now. Socializing and shit. I’m probably too social between my blogs, posts, and speaking. if someone where following me close enough they could duplicate my whole life. It’s funny because McRush is the complete opposite. I’d print out my bank statements if you asked but he is a lot more closed mouth about things. I just like to be transparent so when I become a superstar (see how I plan for the future) I don’t want any surprises. Yall know it all honey. I like it like that. It’s the best way to be free. I’m not held back by my past or mistakes. Just who I am now. It’s a way to keep myself accountable and see my growth in real time. It also makes me extremely happy to know that I have learned from my mistakes and applied the lessons therein accordingly.
So on this Sunday I just want to say that I am grateful for so many things. One of them being YOU being a follower of me. It really means alot to me. Thank you.
Bruh! Like a champ, I started this blog last night. You know on Sunday like I was supposed to but uhm. I fell asleep. 🤣🤣
Like. I legit fell asleep. I don’t even know what I was talking about. Smh. I don’t know if it’s old age or pregnancy brain still. But anything after “in everything you have done in life” is a complete blank. Lord🤦🏾♀️
Anyway. This past week was just as much a blur as whatever this blog was supposed to be about. We got off schedule awhile back when I was pregnant and I haven’t quite been able to get us back on track. We have been living so freely that we forget what day it is. That’s bananas 🍌. I can’t say it’s the worst though. Just when I have days that I have a meeting or something important to do I don’t feel 100%. More like 73. Don’t ask me where 73 came from but its pretty accurate. 😅
One thing I know is structure and discipline are your friend when you are setting goals and trying to reach them. Needless to say I haven’t set any goals much less reached them. I have learned to not beat myself up over the lack of perfection. You won’t always be in alignment but it is important that you realize when you aren’t and aim to get back in. That’s where I am. 😏
When I first started this business I was all over the place. The same with the family building. I have learned that I have to know where I am going in order to get there as smoothly and accurately as possible. 👌🏾
My aim for 2022 is ease and comfort. Planning it so it can come easy and make it simple so I can live comfortably. Wtbs. Let me go to bed so I can get on this track. ❤
One of my clients has laid their foundation and built the muthaFuxin table. And to add to that, people are sitting and ready to eat. I’m so proud because it has been a road of adversity and trials but baybeeee! Man!
I have hired more staff and some more of our children to work at the firm and we have an apprentice in mind for the print shop.
Kera is doing amazing with breastfeeding. I assure you that I can not be happier. We paid off our transit and next week I go in for in for my appointment for tubal ligation AND McRush is getting his vasectomy. I am FREE baby… unless my suspicions of God are true and He got jokes. 🙄
What I took from these wins is something, ironically, that the honorable Ketanji Brown Jackson said, PERSERVERE. Honey if that ain’t the truth. I have been doing this for a long time and some days it was rough as hell but listen. The key was knowing I was destined for more.
Recently I was invited to an event that had a special, successful guest speaker. That’s all great but what can they teach me? What kind of connection will I be able to make? Okay you make more money than me but do they have knowledge that I can utilize. You have to learn to be in the rooms that serve you. Too many people show up for clout but what does clout get you? Not much in the long run. I called the person and asked them directly, how does this serve me. You have to be bold for yourself. You have to trust yourself. Most importantly you must believe in your vision.
There is so much internal work to be done to become a success and I am so proud of my client for reaching a pinnacle. Now Monday we set new goals and crush them in the next 90 days.
