Hey Queen Friend, Welcome back! So by now you have heard the news and I am so happy I was finally able to share it with you. I launched my new podcast Beneath the Crown last week and this wonderful space where you are reading this post. LOL. I hope by now you have checked out a few of the podcast episodes. If so, leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.
If I am being honest, last week was a whirlwind of emotions. I was super happy I finally accomplished one of the many goals I envisioned for myself this year. However, if I am being completely honest, I was super nervous as well. It is so easy to just work on a project and keep it to yourself, fine tuning it while enjoying the process. There isn't much social effort or scrutiny because no one knows about it and it is just my own. It's kind of like being pregnant and having that special mother child bond because the child is growing inside of your body and you can talk to it and nurture it without the interference of the outside world. Okay, so those were my thoughts. Up until the very last minute before the official virtual launch party, I began to second guess myself. I started to get scared. Scared of what people would think, wondering if they would like it or even if I was making the right decision. It takes a lot of guts to put yourself out into the world for potential judgement and criticism.
Anyway, I'm kind of rambling. The point is, I was scared and I started to do what I promised myself I would stop doing and that is worrying about everything being perfect. I began to remind myself that I have to maintain my determination for my destiny, whatever that may be. I thought about how fear is an interruption and if I'm not careful it can distract me and deter me from reaching my destiny.
In that moment I knew that I had to have a determination for destiny. I reminded myself why I decided to start the podcast and why a space like this was so important for women in my opinion. A determination for destiny simply means I will discipline myself to not be distracted by people, things or situations designed to distract me from my goals. It's not always easy but trust me, it is worth it in the end. Challenge yourself to remain disciplined through the fear, remain disciplined through the distractions and program your mind to have a determination for destiny!
See you around the site!
