Over the next month or so I will be making some changes to my blog, brand, and business. Positive Forward Movement, LLC started long before becoming a business. It started in my mind and heart over 10 years ago when I was a broken ball of tears, hurt, and confusion.
It has always been in me to help others. I'm the one that's always rooting for the underdog, boosting people's spirits and supporting them in any way I can. Now it's time for me to do the same for myself.
Make it Plain
When I launched Positive Forward Movement™ live on Periscope as an actual business I was ready to hit the ground running. I was full of confidence and ready to make ish happen. I know what I need to do, how to do it, when and why, but I've been stuck. I have this vision in my head and one in my heart, but right now they aren't connecting.
The one in my head is at www.positiveforwardmovement.com and the one in my heart is right here on my lifestyle blog. The only way for me to excel and really have a positive impact on the world around me is by merging my heart and mind. I welcome you to visit, the new site and take a look around.
Getting Real with Myself
I was back and forth about this decision for a while! I was worrying about losing readers, having to update my profiles, migrating content, and having a circle, what name to use… I was worried about the wrong thing! In the process of distraction, which worry truly is. I missed out and set myself back.
I had a truth moment with myself and I'm going to break it down to you. I do my best work when I am out of feelings and use my Libra Scale. With the tragic events that took place last week I stepped back from social media and connected with myself. I had a deep check in session. I took a look at the world around me and at myself.
The Right People
It was fear that kept me from moving forward and really dive into my role as a life strategist/personal consultant/life coach/all around dope and focused people helper, because I thought I needed people. I didn't want to lose folks along the way. I realized that since beginning this journey I have lost people, it's a natural part of evolution in life. When you go to the next level some people don't belong there, you grow apart, things fade. It's possible that you may reconnect later on, but to dwell on it, won't help you move forward.
This was so ironic to me because I am an introvert, I do better in small intimate situations and definitely thrive alone. However, I have always been a social butterfly. I like people, talking and connecting with people gives me life. But it has to be the right people.
Everyone won't always have your vision or understand your voice ~ Jovanhanna
Every day that goes by and I am not doing my life's work is a disservice to the gifts God gave me and to the people I am here to help. What happens when we don't act is that fear sets in, then comes doubt, and next thing you know a year passes and you're in the same place.
The raw emotion that is pouring out is a reminder that the world needs healing, and that is why I am here. I went through so much pain in my life that I thought there was no healing. I was dead inside, yet here I am living fully today. I can't sit on this vision any longer it's not right.
Never, Never, Never, Never Change
