Many of us wish for more recognition, however when it comes along how do we feel?
Do we push it away or embrace it?
I heard last week that I was a finalist in the ‘Best Home Based Business’ category in 2019 Business Girl Awards. It was unexpected, and I was both touched and elated that I had been thought about and my work recognised, as at least one person had to have nominated me. Alongside this, I also felt apprehensive and stressed at the thought of reaching out to ask for people to vote for me, and unsure if I deserved it.
I had experienced similar mixed emotions 2 years ago when I was first a finalist in the 2017 Business Girl Awards, and knew I didn’t want to be tied up in knots for days and on such an extreme emotional rollercoaster.
So what to do?!
Thankfully, I have done further work around the feminine over the last couple of years and this has meant more of the time I am able to feel enough, to not compare, to be, and see the value in the space I hold and create.
With the awards, after my initial wobbles, this feminine ground has enabled me to honour my passion, hard work, integrity and care with which I’ve created my business over the last 18 years. I love that it has had a positive impact in the lives of so many individuals and couples, rippling out to their children and beyond. And I can’t wait for the next 18 years!
So there is only one thing left to do, and that is to ask
Please vote for me and celebrate what I have created so far.
Many thanks in advance, and to all those who have been part of this journey.
