Happy Wednesday #BOLDANDBRASSY Tribe💥
I love to be surrounded by little reminders, motivation and guiding words as I chuggalug my morning coffee ☕️ I'm at my Aunty Teneya Gwin's right smack dab in downtown Calgary. I'm so hillbilly deluxe that I'm pretty confident this is the largest city I've ever been downtown in. I'm used to hearing my chickens clucking in the a.m not the sound of the train coming and going or workers hustling to bang out their 9-5. I go to grab my morning java as I sit (21 floors high 😳 ) in this fancy 💃🏼 flat (baller of a condo) and prepare for this incredible opportunity ahead of me today and here it is... my mother clucking morning reminder, right on time. Dreams are worth chasing. Yaaaaassssssss ☕️🤗
A few weeks ago I received a phone call. A call from the owner of the Western Horse Review magazine asking if Bold & Brassy Boutique would like to be apart of their fall/winter fashion photo shoot 😳 .. ummm let me think about that..if my answer was written in emoji this is what it would be ... 😱 😳 🙏🏻 🙌🏼 😏 🤗 😍💃🏼🙏🏻. The answer in all it's emotional glory was obviously YES. She asked if I would want to send a bunch of clothes to Nanton for the shoot and before I could think about it I word vomited. I asked ONE MORE QUESTION. This is something I've learned in business that has become very valuable to me in my endeavors. What I really wanted, was the opportunity to meet this amazing woman face to face. Learn about her, learn FROM her and just totally immerse myself in what it is that fuels her success. Did you know you are the average of the 5 core people you hang around? No doubt! I don't know about ya'll (yes I said ya'll) I want to surround myself with big dreamers, people of action, the positive Polly's of the world 🌎 , people who obviously have skills to pay the bills. People who will ultimately have a hand in elevating me to my greatest self. My TUG (that pull in your gut when you FEEL the urge to act or do something) said to ASK to be apart of the shoot...EGO said bitch please...who are you? Needless to say I slapped ego in the face and asked anyway. The result..exactly what my tug was guiding me toward. Now, I am sitting here having a coffee, reflecting on my universal pull to travel 9 hours from home (on a dime 💸 I do not have) to Nanton, AB to meet this incredible woman and my fellow boutique boss ladies. The opportunity presented itself to be apart of something HUGE for my business and I grabbed that gift (and: opportunity) like a kid ripping into presents on Christmas morning. I tore that SOB right open and went for it. No regrets. There is a ton of fear driven thoughts of not being enough..but I AM, and YOU ARE TOO. If I have the ability to work hard, align myself with what I want and get it, then you most certainly can too, darling 💐 Today a dream of mine is coming true.
What are your dreams? What fear based thoughts are you telling yourself that are blocking you from receiving what the universe is willing & waiting to hand you? Ponder this thought today. I want to hear your thoughts and feedback! 💜🔥
Above all else, remember this excerpt from my all time favorite quote;
"Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We were born to make manifest the the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give permission people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Marianne Williamson
