Life, lately, has looked something like this.
I’m on an all-day, every night, and throughout the weekend worker right now, trying to strike that balance between the corporate and entrepreneurial pieces of my life. Despite the perpetual over scheduling, and my borderline obsession with my planner and all things levenger, I can’t imagine my life any other way. In fact, I would
probably hate it.
When I have time, the chronicles of my life – the sweats, the ever-valued hours in my kitchen, and the community driven pieces of owning a local business – all come to life and are shared on my fitness and healthy lifestyle blog, Fuel Sweat Grow (f.s.g.). While it’s been a little over a year since I switched over from my old blog and lessened the hold that blogging and personal social media had on me in my previous line(s) of work, it’s still an outlet I love to have. Maybe, one day, I’ll push forward with a little more consistency, but for now, my time goes to my job and businesses first, and the blog is my treasured outlet.
I still want to keep all the lifestyle pieces rolling on f.s.g., especially the food, but this space is where I’ll be returning to share more of the build. That’s what I’m ‘in it’ for — that’s what I love about all things business, entrepreneurial and corporate. The build, the engagement, and ultimately, all of the effort and thankless hours that it takes to create a unique community within a community and, over time, see something brand new and beautiful materialize before your eyes – that’s what makes my heart race. Some people might not get it – they might not understand why it’s appealing to work tirelessly for hours upon hours, without any sort of guarantee or prescribed method for success, and they’re not going to get it. It’s not for everyone, but it is for me. I do it because I love it. It’s not being a workaholic, because it’s not just about working for the sake of working — it’s about the creation, the build, and each and every growth period that comes along the way. There’s no job description, formula, or guaranteed prescription for success – it’s intuitive, it’s gritty, and it’s an all-consuming exposure of your souls contents… or else, it’s nothing.
As I’m getting ready to announce some big moves and changes, my mind is on GO – constantly. Every moment is an opportunity to connect another dot, every conversation brings more depth to the concept and a greater reality to the next step. My mind is filling with more information, expanding strategies, and growing to my truest fulfillment. My brain is chock full, ever whirring, and it has me wondering; why would anyone ever want things any other way?
