The last few weeks have been a bit rough, if I’m quite honest with you.
From both a personal and business perspective. Between having a massive hail storm in Texas the size of softballs that totaled one of our cars to being let go by a client to feeling a general lack of focus and organization in my business.
It’s been a doozy of a Q2 that’s for sure.
I’m not normally a touchy feely person. It’s been difficult to let myself understand that part of everything that has been going on is that deep down I’m grieving for what has been lost or missed out on in the last two months. I’m sure that at some point like me, you’ve had to come to terms with what’s going on and face it in your own way.
If you’re like me and needed to be told multiple times that it’s okay to not be okay then hear me out.
It’s okay to not be okay right now.
It’s okay to not have it all together.
It’s okay to be off your game as long as you don’t quit the game.
It’s okay to take a nap or a break during the middle of the day if you can’t concentrate and are struggling to get through a normally easy task.
It’s okay if you’re totally crushing it and are doing better than ever.
It’s okay if it feels like business as usual.
You’re allowed to feel whatever it is you’re feeling right now.
Whatever it is you need to do right now, go do it.
If you need to take a break from creating content, then do that. If you need to go all in on a marketing campaign, do it!
After I had an internal pow wow with myself this weekend about what I needed to do, I woke up on Monday and felt an energy, excitement, and determination that I haven’t felt since the world went a bit sideways.
Sure most of the stuff I’ve been going through is still being dealt with, but I feel like I woke up on Monday and was snapped out of part of the funk I’d been walking in.
So if you’ve been walking in a funk, let me give you a virtual hug (or air high five) and encourage you to do what you need to do for you right now.
I’ll leave you with this quote from Amy Porterfield.
Finish this week off as best you can, rest up this weekend and next week, just do your best, perfection is not what anyone is looking for right now.
