One of the most common complaints that I hear from spiritual entrepreneurs is that they are overwhelmed with social media.
In fact hardly a day goes by where I don't read the typical "I need a break from social media" post.
Hey I LOVE the fact that you take breaks when you need to.
In fact I would encourage it!
But I also want to offer you guys some tools to reduce the inevitable stress that us spiritual and empathic types can feel online.
Because it can be a BIG energy sucker to get online and share your heart and soul...or even just reading the millions of not-so-authentic posts that people put out.
The online world is like the real world but if the real world were like a city in the wild west 200 years ago...there are different rules...made-up rules.
People act differently...and it can be exhausting if you're the healer type...because there's a lot of wild energy! People selling, buying things, hiding behind their computers while they say horrible things....
It's an energy catalyst...and let's just say there's no shortage of strange fear energy out there.
That's why sometimes as sensitive beings it can be a bit overwhelming.
...and I had this overwhelming feeling of failure.
You see just two days ago, I embarked on a new stage in my blog.
One where I show up and get REALLY visible for 100 days.
It's part of my plan to boost up my income, and it is A LOT of work. I've set myself some really big challenges. It's had been going really well, for the past two days anyway, and today idk why but it just caught up with me.
Then I had the realization that I'm only 3 days into a 100 day plan...and that oh yeah! It's OK not to be seeing any results yet.
So that hit me, and then I was able to fall back on my old sense of perspective.
See I tend to get a little teensey bit dramatic...and that's because I'm such a detail oriented person that sometimes I miss the big picture.
See and being good with details is a gift! But it's easy for us detail-minded people to get lost in the fact that only two days have passed and my new blog plan isn't immediately making me any money. Lol...
During the first year of my business I probably spent over 1000 hours working....with almost NOTHING to show for it. I was honestly at the giving up point.
I was thinking maybe it's just not possible for me...maybe I'm not doing it right...etc.
And then BOOM* something happened that would change the course of this blog and of my confidence in my ability to support myself...and oh yeah the infinite nature of our universe and it's constantly supply of mon-ay!!!!
