The nitty gritty truth.
I still remember that exact moment.. the one where I said, “I need to leave the bridal shop.” It was early 2017, sitting in my broken down car in the Ulta parking lot. I was at that point where driving to the boutique gave me such anxiety. Where I had to just pray and cry after every wedding, feeling exhausted and just empty. It was in that moment, in an Ulta parking lot, that I realized I had to let go.
I finally took the steps to leave, even though it was terrifying, and just thinking about it still gives me anxiety. But it set me free. My body and soul was screaming for change, and when I finally listened, I finally became free.
If you are having that feeling inside, the one that is screaming for change, I really encourage you to take time to listen to what is holding you back from that change.
What are you waiting for?
What is stopping you from taking that next step, or reaching that amazing potential?
What would it take to get you to start?
To do it without fear, or worry?
Back when I owned a bridal boutique and wedding planning company, it looked like I had it all. A successful, award winning business. Constant press coverage and features. I mean, who doesn’t dream of owning a bridal boutique?
But it wasn’t all glitter and gold - deep inside I was miserable. I was working 18 hour days, going weeks without a day off (yes, that means no weekends either!) and I was in a terrible business partnership. My OCD and anxiety was at an all time high. And I was getting kidney stones every other month.
