Hello World!

Trust Your Journey

It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you are not.”

Do you “Trust Your Journey”?

I have wanted to start a blog for quite some time but I was not sure what to write about.  Last night, while tossing and turning and head spinning, “Trust Your Journey” popped into my head and remembered that I have this cup sitting in my cubicle at work that say’s on one side “Trust Your Journey” and on the other side is says “It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you are not.”~Unknown~.

I decided that this would be my first topic to start out on many blog conversations to come.

My mom had bought me this cup a couple years ago in a cute boutique store in Cape May, NJ.  She said this was a perfect cup for me and had to buy it. She’s usually always right! Grrr LOL. I do second guess my abilities a lot. Always have. It is one of my defaults. I try many things in life but never fully engage in its fullest potential because FEAR holds me back. I’ve done this far too long and it is time to stop “HOLDING BACK.”

It is very intimidating to put words out into the world and wonder what people will say.  Everyone is a critic, including myself.  Heck we are all our worst critics’ right? Being our own personal critic seems to be ok at times but never someone else’s. If it is a bad one we automatically become defensive. I took off from work on a Friday recently to spend quality time with my mom and my son in NYC. As I was explaining to her about wanting to live a flexible lifestyle and wanting to learn more about becoming an entrepreneur, my mom said to me “You have to learn to accept criticism good or bad, and not get defensive about it if that’s what you want.” Moreover, for some reason it stuck. So today and every day I welcome criticism with open wholeheartedness.  Good or bad criticism can only help you in your journey.

In a couple of weeks, I will be turning 40 years old. I am not afraid of my age; in fact, I am embracing it!  I think it is awesome when someone asks me how old I am. The reactions I get are priceless! However, I am afraid of not becoming the person I know I can be.  So this will be my turning point in life.  I’ve lived far too many years with just getting by. It has been fun and easy; up to now!

I vow through this blog to “Trust My Journey” with the universe by my side to help me transform into the person I want to be. Confident, Free, Clear & live the Abundant Life.

Thank you.

Stay Tuned for many more post to come.

Love,

Gwendolyne Marie
