Ok, so typically I reserve “Counting Blessings” posts for times that I’ve gone through something traumatic and need to remind myself for all that I have to be grateful for. The practice of doing this is something that I highly recommend. I have found it to be extremely grounding, and provide me with the perspective I need to move forward during what is usually a difficult time.
This morning I experienced something different. I woke up around 2:30am. LOL When I wake up, I get up. It is part of my morning “ritual” or routine, which you can read about here. During my stretching, I started to feel overwhelmingly grateful and knew I needed to make a blog post right away. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I’ve just recently passed my one year anniversary of not having a 9-5 job, and I’m feeling very lucky to have made it this far.
Here is what came to mind for this morning:
Numero Uno: All my ex- boyfriends 😅. Now of course Fabolous said it best: “I’m better than your ex, gon’ be better than your next.” Let’s keep things straight. I don’t miss these guys, but hey I wouldn’t be the woman I am today if it wasn’t for them. Thanks for the memories gents. 💋 I think I’m feeling particularly sentimental around this topic because I gave up the concept of having a boyfriend a couple years ago. More to come on my thoughts around this. Make sure you subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss the post!
Numero Dos: Being able to cry. I am truly grateful that I am a woman, and that comes with the social acceptability of being able to be sensitive and cry. Crying is an amazingly powerful way to release feelings, and heal. In the past year I have cried so many times. I hope that one day soon crying won’t be looked upon as a negative as it typically is as I feel it can be incredibly meditative and people today are stressed AF. Like can’t we all just cry for a few minutes, and then pick ourselves up and get to work fixing the shit that’s making us cry?
Numero tres: Having no fear. I just going to say it. I am fucking fearless 🤓. I am smart too. Being fearless and not smart is probably reckless. There is a difference. I can say that I am starting to realize that the things that I do naturally do not come so easily to others. Knowing this is a personal breakthrough that is going to propel my brand on its mission to connect and support those with common passions, to achieve remarkable goals.
Numero Cuatro: The Cambridge Innovation Center. As I sit here and write this from the comfy couch of my coworking space, I could write an entire post dedicated solely to the blessings of this place. And I will.
Numero Cinco: Conscious Entrepreneurs. In the past year, I have quite literally submerged myself into the Miami entrepreneurial community. For the first time in the last 8 years, I have not stepped foot on a plane in months. I knew that when I set out on this journey it would require many changes. Going from not traveling 3 weeks out of every month has been one of the biggest. It has been worth it. I have met amazing people here in Miami and I can’t wait to introduce you to some of them. Without a doubt, we have some of the best talent in the world in this magical city. I am so grateful that I decided to take that road trip many years ago when I started this blog. #staytuned #couchconversations #miamilife.
Phew, I could honestly keep going but I got plenty of time to write more later. Right now I’ve got to go!
