The other week sucked.
It just sucked.
I spent most of the day crying, doubting myself, not feeling very safe and secure in my body and with myself.
And yes, this was in the middle of a launch.
As you can guess … probably not the best place to be mindset-wise when you’re trying to stay positive.
I knew it wasn’t where I wanted to be. But I gave myself space, time and love to work through it all.
I journaled on what feelings were coming up and the thoughts in my head.
I allowed myself to take a break from my launch because it didn’t feel good posting from that energy.
I gave myself permission to just be. To not do work, to not create unless I felt inspired. To just be with myself.
We all have bad days.
As much as we want to pretend we don’t, or we tell ourselves that successful entrepreneurs just don’t have bad days and we need to get our shit together, they happen.
And we need to allow ourselves to be human sometimes.
So when you’re facing a really emotional, super shitty day, know that it’s okay. And that it’s normal.
Give yourself space to move past it. Here are some tips.
1. Feel your feelings
Let me tell you, ignoring your feelings won’t work. Even pushing on and pretending won’t work. You can’t hide from yourself or the energy you put out. Instead, take time to feel your feelings and move through them.
2. Listen to your body and soul
Ask yourself what you need most today, and give yourself space to do it. If you need a day for self care, do it. Do whatever you need to take care of yourself and your emotions.
3. Don’t get complacent
But don’t get too complacent! We’re not about making excuses, right? We are all about honoring ourselves and our emotions but not wallowing in it. Let yourself feel. Have a good cry. Then move on.
When we see social media feeds full of big wins and perfectly curated images, it’s easy to feel like everyone else has their shit together. But the truth is, we’re all human. Even that coach who is boasting 6 figure months. Even she has her bad days too.
So the next time shit hits the fan and you feel like the world is caving in, know that you are not alone and that you are allowed to feel your feelings and give yourself space on the bad days.
