Moment of real talk right now...I am simultaneously thrilled and terrified to launch this business. Yes! You read that right. This glimmer of a dream, turned passion project and now turned business has taken me through these emotions more times than I can count. Doing something new can be both life giving and terrifying to the point of wanting to turn back, run in the opposite direction so fast that your comfort zone didn't even know you had left!
Can I get an AMEN from any one who has felt this emotion before!
I have learned to call this space of the back and forth my DANGER ZONE. Why do I call it that? Well, this is a space where you can feel your vision, you can speak life to the future you want and hold dear, you even start to live this life you have dreamt of. However, you can also feel self doubt or procrastination of what is hard, messy, or quite honestly not fun begin to wrap you up in a blanket and send you right back to where you started.
Why am I sharing this with you? Because right now I am in this dance of the danger zone. I share this for the hope that even if one other beautiful soul out there reads this and thinks "Yes! I feel you sister!" then I am honored to share in this community with you.
Now where was I? Oh, right...showing up on the highway to my danger zone. I choose to show up in the danger zone and move forward towards balance and beauty. Whether this is for my business, my relationships, my family, or something else, the danger zone has taught me invaluable lessons I will always keep learning from. This is a choice to pursue the best version of myself daily while giving myself large healthy doses of grace through the process.
The reason I even wanted to begin this business-building process was to cultivate a community of women who can relate to this!
A place where we can come together to learn and support one another on our journey to finding a more balanced and beautiful life. Let's be real and authentic in how we show up, starting right now. Let me fill you in on how this has been going for me.
Messy...incredibly messy. So messy in fact it is hard to sort out one idea from the next.
Focusing on one moment at a time allows me to stay in the present...which pulls me OUT of the danger zone and into a space of being limitless.
It allows my dreams and ideas to flourish into existence. Even while living in the moment to moment, life will continue to happen. What is important is showing up in THAT moment, right here, right now, for that best version of yourself you have created.
THAT IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS!
Then in this messiness, true beauty starts to shine. Not in a way that is superficial, but in a way of becoming the most beautiful version of yourself. A beauty that is the essence of who you are and where you are going. A beauty to be shared with your community to build and uplift others.
Now for the balance part...
This comes with learning when you have stayed in the danger zone long enough. You have to begin to build trust with yourself in order to build balance. Trust that you have got this! Trust that you are not alone! Trust that you ARE the boss you know yourself to be! Trust that one step forward is the hardest part, because without it, you will never begin the journey of your dreams. The more you trust yourself, the more balance will begin to appear.
Will it be hard? Yes.
Will it be messy? Yes.
Will it be beautiful and balanced? Yes...if you choose it to be.
I will keep being real and honest throughout this process as the Balanced Beautiful Body continues to grow. This commitment is one I hold close to my heart because it is a commitment to the future of bettering how we show up for ourselves and one another. A future I KNOW we can create together.
Before this amazing business launches, I want you to know, along the path to our dreams is where we learn the most. So, while I am learning, I will share, and I certainly cannot wait to share more in just a few short weeks.
