There are some things that don’t come as a surprise to people who read my blog on a regular basis. My support of The BOSS Network is one of those things. After joining this online community, I have had the priviledge of connecting with some of the most inspiring, encouraging and all around supportive women that I never imagined having in my life.
I am about embark on a six-city journey with Cameka Smith, Founder of The BOSS Network, to find women who are inspiring others in their community. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to travel the country over the next three months to meet these amazing women (and I don’t even know who they are yet).
While promoting this event, I begin to think about who inspires me? Who keeps me moving forward when I feel like giving up? I had one of those days very recently. Everything that I think could have gone wrong, felt like it did. I actually did give up for about an hour. I just felt like I had enough, I wanted out, after all, what’s the point of doing all that I do? I often try to be everything to everyone and I fall short occassionally. It is as much a blow to me as I am sure it to them but I’m not superwoman. I sometimes have to tell myself that I do what I can not what I can’t.
So… how did I get back on track? Oddly, I logged into my Twitter account and there were so many messages from people in my life with such postive affirmations that I mean something to someone. I don’t want to be anyone’s end all or be all but it feels good to know that people think of you and want the best for you.
I look forward to seeing YOU along this journey and you know I will be blogging about my experiences along the way. By the way, who inspires you? Leave me a comment about the person or persons that keep you going…
First stop… the nation’s capitol, Washington DC
