Just recently my kids and I really had to sit down and talk about not doing what everyone else is doing if it is not going to help you. That you need to stand up for yourself even when you feel that you may be the only person doing it.
I have always, since I can remember, did things my own way. My parents who are fabulous had to just let me, when it wasn’t going to hurt me or anyone else. I was and am that determined. But truthfully as I became an adult, I grew tired and just followed the crowd, only to discover I was miserable when I did that. Now, with my own business I am able to do things my own way. But I still from time to time slip into that maybe I should do it the way everyone else is doing it, and almost every time I have, I am not happy. Take it from me, when you actually take the lead in what you are doing in life, at home and work, when you break out from the crowd, it is just so empowering. Don’t wait or settle for less than you deserve.
Happy Everything! Karen
