I've leveled up. I know, because my problems are bigger.
When I was pregnant, the company I worked for got bought out and like 100's of others, I lost my job. I knocked on probably every door in LA looking for work, but no one would hire a pregnant woman. I was desperate because I was pregnant and so I cried to God until my eyes ran dry. After some time, I just stopped looking. -
Anxiety heightened after I had my daughter. I didn't expect motherhood to be as hard as it was, but my fear wasn't whether I'd be a good mom.. My fear was whether I'd be a good mom, and still be successful. Whether I'd be a good mom and still be able to chase my dreams of owning my own marketing agency, and all I wanted to achieve as a writer -
I later realize that God needed me to be so uncomfortable that I'd have no choice but to believe in myself. I had to rely on the gifts he had given me to become the woman I so badly wanted to be, and I had to let go of the safety net of a comfortable job. Of course it wasn't the 'convenient' option, but remember that inconvenience is a requirement for transformation. -
Today, my agency contributes to a lot of our bills.. the fact I published a book that's selling all over the world, still blows my mind. My daughter went from being my reason to give it all up, to being my reason to give everything I've got! and honestly, everything I thought would break me, only built me. -
