So many times we let the opinions of others hold us back. Majority of the time, those opinions are just made up in our heads based off of perceptions from our own journeys in life.
When I entered direct sales for the last time, I was worried about what others would think. I tip toed my way into my business which only held my family and I back from potential success.
I thought I had to be a certain way on social media versus authentically me. I stumbled. I made mistakes. I struggled forward.
One year ago, I asked my husband to give me honest feedback about my social media presence. Anyone who knows my hubby knows he is the most honest man in the world and he didn’t hold back. He encouraged me to show the world why he fell in love with me. (So, if you don’t like it, blame him!)
Anyways… I ditched my filter. I moved out of my own way. I stopped letting the made up opinions in my head hold me back. I trusted my gut verses the voice in my head.
And what has happened in the past 12 months has been nothing short of amazing. I found my happy place. I have embraced who I am and I have made more genuine friendships because of it. I’m so grateful to all of you who love and embrace me for me.
I know that people probably have opinions of me that may be negative but other people’s opinions of me are none of my business.
I’m weird, quirky, positive, creative, funny, loud, unpredictable and not everyone’s cup of tea. I’m hot mess Jess and I’m proud of the person I am today.
Thank you to you all who have supported me on my journey. You have no idea how much your support has gotten me through the days I doubted my self worth.
I am often told how inspiring I am but to be completely honest YOU all are the ones who inspire me. I’m so grateful for you all supporting my authentic self when I was terrified to show you the real me.
You all taught me to follow my magic and now I teach others to do that too.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. YOU all have helped me discover my purpose.
I love you.
