Back when I managed Opa Coffee & Wine Bar, I had my bad ass team, who no matter how tired, how hungover, how whatever they could be, showed up through thick and thin and owned it like a boss. I’ve always seemed to surround myself with badasses. In the music scene, the craft community, and, now, in my very own home, badasses. I’m lucky to know such amazing people.
Every now and then though, in the midst of working two part time jobs, renovating rooms, building gardens, vacuuming up after three dogs, doing dishes, and building a business, feeling like I can’t keep up is definitely a cloud that follows me around. Sometimes, we can’t do it all. Sometimes, we can.
I always opt for the later of the two previous statements. I can do it all. Sometimes it’s a matter of putting everything on hold, taking a nap, and regrouping. Other times, it’s just powering through. This week, I took a little time to embroider. There is nothing like stopping to stitch “#girlboss” for a couple of hours…. talk about meditating on your intention.
We all need to take time to tell ourselves that we are a boss. We can keep persisting. We can follow and live our dreams. With that, I hope you take time today remind yourself of the same. The girl boss in me bows to the girl boss in you. Have a great day!
