The Way Of The Female Entrepreneur

There are days when I feel like I’m fully in my power, I’m crushing it, I’m focused and I’ve so got this.

And then there are days like today when I feel completely exhausted, my soul feels tired, my brain can’t think, my motivation is zero.

I feel defeated. I feel deflated. I just feel so damn tired. Tired of trying so hard, tired of trying to do it all, tired of keeping on going.

Tired of trying to figure out why it’s not happening the way I want it to…not fast enough, not big enough, not successful enough.

And so today I broke down. Today I cried. I let myself feel it all, I let myself feel the tiredness, I just let it all go. Tired of trying to hold it all together. Tired of trying to give to everyone else, of trying to provide value, of trying to be something or someone that I wasn’t feeling I was.

And so I cried. And I breathed. And I got into bed. And I let everything go. I let myself go. I let myself let go of my expectations of myself, let go of what I ‘should’ be doing, where I ‘should’ be, who I ‘should’ be and I just sank into where I was. 

I called on the universe for support and picked a tarot card, which told me to listen to my heart and I did that. I lay in my bed with my hands on my heart and I just listened.

Just be where you are, she said. Just be with what’s here now, she said..just be. 

And that’s what I did. 

And I felt like I could breathe again and I felt like I could get up again and I felt like I could keep on going again.

Stepping into your power is not always about being confident and showing up for everyone else. 

Stepping into your power is also knowing when it’s time to stop. When it’s time to listen to what your body and soul is telling you, when it’s time to show up for you.

Stepping into your power is about listening to your heart, listening to your soul and doing what feels authentic to you. Doing what feels good FOR you. Stepping into your power is about honouring your process and your journey…the good parts and the uncomfortable parts.

Stepping into your power is about coming home to you in all its beautiful messy authentic and honest ways.

So today I actually was fully in my power as I cried and I stopped to listen to my heart, to listen to my soul and to just be with where I was. 

This is the way of the female entrepreneur. It is not a linear journey. It’s an up, down, forwards, backwards, sideways journey. It is a journey of the heart and soul and learning to listen to them. To let them guide you and support you.

What I know for sure is that I’ll get to where I want to be. What I know for sure is that I’ll have many other days like this day. Days filled with doubt and uncertainty, and I’ll get up from those days as well. And I’ll fail. And I’ll succeed. And I’ll keep on doing it.

Because THIS is the journey.

This is where the success is. In the honouring of self, in the acknowledging of self, in allowing yourself to listen to your self and give it what it needs.

This is true power.

This is true success.

This is the way of the female entrepreneur.
