YES! Get ready for your personal cheerleader to say “YES YOU CAN!” Do you have a vision tugging at your heart daily but talk yourself out of it because you are scared of taking the leap?
Sisters, remember, this isn’t a leap — it’s a step. Seriously. One step at a time.
I remember when I took my first step. It was the winter of 2009, Rosalee had been born that November and I remember that calling so loud, “DO IT! Don’t be afraid. SHOW YOUR DAUGHTER!”
I called my husband at work and said: “Babe, I think I am going to start this gratitude company. I will bake homemade graham crackers but really I will just be talking about gratitude.”
My first step was just speaking truth to someone who believed in me. That was enough to keep me moving.
His response was, “Of course you are, babe. Go do it.”
In April 2010 I officially launched my first company, my first project for the mission and message of G R A T I T U D E, Grateful Grahams.
I didn’t have any money.
I didn’t have a website.
I didn’t really know what I was doing.
I didn’t have investors.
I didn’t have employees.
I did have a 5-month-old baby.
I did have a kid in grade school.
I did have people who supported me.
I did have a calling that was so loud I could no longer ignore it.
I did have mentors who answered ALL my questions.
I did have passion and drive.
I did have a message I knew I was meant to share with the world.
As we are almost to the end of 2018, look back and see where saying yes has led you? Let me encourage you. Don’t wait for New Year’s to commit to living your best life!
I am your personal cheerleader, here to say “YES SISTER YES! YOU CAN!”
You can take a step. You can answer the call to create. You are worthy of that promotion. You are enough. You have enough.
