Like many of you, 2020 has brought many twists and turns in my life. This has been one of my most challenging years I have experienced. Though I have lost a lot, I am grateful to have my life, health. I am thankful for those who are still with me and showering me with love.
In one year, I got a major surgery, lost 70+ pounds, ended a 5-year contract at my job, and moved back home. This year tested my patience, my positivity, and my mental health. There were times when I felt like giving up! But I prayed and kept going. There were times I would be depressed and laid in bed. And to me, that is fine. I am so happy I had time to just rest and be at peace with myself.
Lately, I have seen on IG that if you did not do something this year to grow your business, you do not have a hustling spirit. There is a whole pandemic babyyyy? What did you want people to do? You have every right to be in PJs every day during 2020! We all deserve a medal for just being ALIVE during 2020! People have lost so much this year; people are hurting and suffering. Instead of judging people and asking them what they have done, try to send positivity their way.
If people are saying this to you, PROTECT YOUR ENERGY and walk away! Just tell them you ain’t feeling it and you need to exit stage left! You should not waste a single breath justifying what you have done during a pandemic. People have lost jobs, homes, and, most importantly, loved ones. There is more to life than building your brand.
Through this year, I have learned that I need to protect my heart, space, and mind to function and thrive. I AM good when I AM GOOD! I need to take care of myself. So many times, I worried about what I was doing, how I was helping others. 2020 I learned to use my voice even more. I have learned where my line is. I have used this time doing “nothing” to take care of myself and be happy with Rachel’s essence.
This year it was okay to rest. We all deserve it. We did not need to build eight business! Take some time to thank yourself for getting through 2020! Because it was not easy! Cheers to you!
