Today is spring cleaning day, not for any other reason but that it has been on my schedule for like a month now, and I literally stopped what I was doing to come post this blog.
There is something therapeutic for me, in cleaning, bathing the dog, and working in the yard, flower bed, or whatever it is outside. Today, Hubby had the yard covered so I started cleaning, I mean my house is a wreck right now, uh hum.... because furniture is pulled out, blinds are down, windows are open... anyway.
As I clean I ponder, that MAY be a Texas word not sure( it has a different meaning for me I am sure), but I will elaborate. I ponder, think, pray, rethink, rework my thoughts, and try to settle any internal stresses I may have.
The last few weeks, I have been learning about "how to manage your business", "how to get more face time on social media" "how to do this" "how to do that" and I swear to you, God spoke straight to my heart. While I was cleaning the inside of my windows and jamming to Pat Benatar, I am 53, she was my hero when I was 18, some things you just don't let go of right? Anyway, it just hit me like a ton of bricks!
I don't need to learn how to do anything. I just need to keep being me, I don't need to change, I don't need to make posts on social media that will get "likes" or "boosted" or make the insta hall of fame. Honestly, that isn't who I am, and it isn't what my company is about.
I want people like me, you know? Honest, hard working, spring cleaning, yard working, humble people. Now don't go reading anything into what I just said. I LOVE ALL kinds of people, and open anyone with open arms, with a hug of course, and if you know me, then you know this is true.
I love to laugh, I love to help, I love to share, I love my family with all my heart, I love spending time with my niece and nephews, and great nieces and nephews, I love my husband, my life is happy, and I am honestly VERY BLESSED! I am intelligent, funny, witty, and a bit honery at times, and can have a temper if you push me far enough, I am forgiving, humble, and try to be the very best person I can be, and well.... if that isn't good enough for social media, well then .... SORRY, NOT SORRY!
There are people in this world that try to show their lives are like a super stars life, and ya know what? to me , that ain't living!~ I don't want to be like a single other person in this world, except for who I am, and who I am is pretty damn awesome!
All I am sharing is what was on my heart, during my spring cleaning session. I will attract the customers that get me, the REAL me. I don't need to post picture perfect photos, spend hours trying to figure out WHAT product will sell, WHEN it will sell, AND the BEST time to post on social media.
I don't need to pretend to be something I am not, and THAT is what social media, marketing, and influencers are trying to change me into, as far as I can tell, and you know what.... I am not gonna do it! I am a slow learner, I am sure this exact conversation took place with my Nephew months and months ago, but I am old, and stubborn, and sometimes it just takes the smell of Murphy's Oil Soap to clear my head. I love you Josh!
So I really need to get back to my baseboards, they are horrible, since my son learned that cleaning baseboards was NOT a reward, and he grew up, went into the Army and such, they have been a bit neglected. True Story, he will confirm it to anyone anytime! HA HA HA~
Thank you for reading, Please share this, it really makes this 53 year old woman, feel better knowing that at least one person enjoys my ramblings!
Peace and Blessings~
