I came across this inspiration today, and I felt the need to share it with you.
Have you ever found yourself defending who you are or what you do for a living when it is no one person business? I have lately. I find it to be very annoying.
I work full-time, along with creating and building my spiritual business. I also have been dealing with a severe knee issue for the past three months. I have worked both my job and my business through all of it. However, I had a knee replacement last week, and I seem to have a few people telling me how to run my business or if I am still in business at all. It is crazy to me how people will say whatever they feel like without realizing what they are saying to me.
One thing I have realized about this quote is that; no matter how fast or slow you go, it's your speed, your business, your life — no one else's. Too many people either give up on themselves because they listen to the nonsense of others. I have found myself defending my recovery and explaining what I have done with my business to prepare for the surgery.
When you keep your speed and keep moving forward, you are doing fabulous. Whatever you are recovering from, don't let anyone tell you you should be over it by now. People are not you, and it truly is no one person business how you live or what you do.
I didn't want this to turn into a rant, but it has. I am someone who has been experiencing a tremendous amount of pain for the past few months, and it amazes me the unsolicited advice I keep getting to get my business going and get over it about my knee.
I don't complain hardly at all, honestly, who will really listen. I don't really ask for help because, with some people, you will owe them. But yet, I still manage to find people who are not busy enough moving forward in their own life to advise me on mine.
Block out the people who are telling you what to do without asking for their opinion. Use the gift God gave you, intuition, and start listening to what your intuition is telling you about your own life. Keep moving forward in your life, no matter how many little steps it takes, how many breaks you take. Moving forward is always moving forward. Even when a spider is spinning her web, she never goes backward, always forward in different directions.
Live your truth, no one else's.
