Soooo I LEAPED!! (scared but excited face)
I'm officially taking a leap of faith into my business to really commit to Inner Light Botanicals, crystal healing, teaching about yoga, mindfulness, self-care, positive self-talk and to feel more aligned with my purpose to make more positive change in more lives. Yesterday was my last day in my full-time job that I held for over 8 years, and while it was part of the journey, it wasn't my calling.
I've been feeling all of the emotions. I'm scared, excited, panic-y if I think about things too much, motivated, free. Above all, it feels right.
I always tell myself to lead with the heart, and this decision was a huge test for me, but I know I'm going to be okay because of it. It's going to be a bumpy road for a little while, but I'm going to be okay.
Something I usually say at the end of my yoga classes is 'thank you for being here' and I want to say that to you here too. You make me a better person by just showing up, for believing in me and what I do. And to be honest, I wouldn't have had the courage if it wasn't for you and all of the real, raw, deep connections I've made with so many amazing humans along this journey so far. Being a small business owner can feel isolating sometimes but I can truly say I feel supported.
Please, always, always remember to keep shining your light. You don't know whose life you are changing because of it.
