Oh yes…I know it was last week.
Amanda though at Amanda Cade, made me think of Independence Day in a completely different way.
Too view Independence Day, not as necessarily a day to celebrate America (or invasion day). But too look at Independence Day as a day to look at and give yourself permission to be independent. Independent from something you may consider a flaw, giving yourself permission to let go and be independent from your mistakes.
I felt so inspired, reading it.
What I would like to be independent is from my ever ending fear in myself. The fear to get out there and achieve something amazing. Achieve something I have always wanted too do. I want to run my own business, the only thing is, what do I have to offer. That not only can I offer, but would be sustainable to make a survivable income on. My partner and I were talking about it, the other day. I finally became brave enough to tell him what I want to do.
It would definitely be a new age type store. Some of it, I could do now, but how well it would be. I don’t know. What I would also love to do, is sell new age “stuff”. Do Tarot Readings and Reiki Healing, both of which I’ve been told that I am good at. Now, it doesn’t “get rid” of things like cancer, but I do believe that things like Reiki, can help someone feel calmer. I use to do it for money before, and became quiet popular because of it. But the place that “hired” me was dodge-as. I was actually fired, because I reported the money I made to our welfare system, and apparently I wasn’t supposed to do that. They didn’t want our welfare system (Centrelink) to know that they were running a business.
I would love to sell teddy bears,sell Charlie Bears…Sell “witchy things”.
My partner and I were saying that I could do things like, sell tarot readings, absent Reiki healing’s (I’m a Level 2). I could even sell “witchy” and new age things, look into putting things I’ve said, if you follow me on Insta, you’ve probably seen me write a couple of “quotes” from my own thoughts. Put them on pins, bookmarks, those little canvases…
But, my fear, of not believing in myself is what I need to make myself independent from. I have a lot of ideas, but also a lot of fear in myself. Even THOUGH, when I did kind of do it, I didn’t run my own business, I worked for someone else. I was very good at what I was doing.
I still have that fear.
