Excuse me, Patricia Bokowski, but I would like to tell you in the strictest of confidence that there’s a massive conspiracy playing out to help you go where you’ve never gone before.
That’s all I can tell you.

“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs
Here’s the thing about life.
That no one really tells us growing up.
Life is hard.
I said it.
That is not a reason to give up.
You have to keep pitching.
Day after day.
Week after week.
Month after month.
And year after year.
Remember the line, the one about, “the fool didn’t know he couldn’t do it, so he did it anyway!”
So guess what?
Be the fool.
Whatever it is you’re thinking about doing.
Life is too short not to.
And don’t worry about what other’s think,
What other’s think is none of your business.
And news flash.
They are going to think what they think of you no matter what.
So, you might as well do what you really want.
For those that don’t know.
I started my business in 2012.
And in 2012, I had no clue what I was doing.
But guess what?
I did it anyway.
And I’ve been winging it ever since.
And, one thing I learned early on.
Never rely on anyone one.
No, I learned that lesson real good.
I make my own opportunites.
I make sure I am ‘out there’.
I don’t wait for an invitation “to the table”.
“They” ask to sit at MY table.
Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.
It’s YOUR path.
And yours alone.
So, stop asking other people what YOU should do?
You can ask for advice.
But, for the love of GOD.
Do not ask other people what YOU should be doing?
Do you think Kylie Jenner asked anyone if she should start a lipstick company?
No, she woke up one day and said, “I’m going to start a lipstick company.”
And that was that!
I have written often.
That I am not vanilla.
I am more pistachio with a scoop of strawberry.
I am most definitely not for everyone.
And I’m totally cool with that.
I can instantly tell when I meet someone who’s my kind of crazy.
And I can also tell instantly when I meet someone who’s not.
And that’s okay too.
I went to a new store the other day.
It’s a small store, that sells hair products.
As soon as I walked in, this lady came up to me (pretty sure she was the owner by the way she spoke).
Anyway, we bonded instantly.
She loved my haircut, the color, my makeup, my outfit, my confidence.
You name it.
In a matter of 15 minutes, we bonded.
My kind of weirdo.
I’ve been noticing some over the years.
You know, I’m a big people watcher.
And I’ve noticed.
The older women get, the more quiet they become.
Like, they start loosing themselves in age.
And then wonder why they are sad?
Please don’t let that be you.
Don’t let that woman inside of you die before you are actually buried.
As for me.
I find the older I get.
The louder I’m becoming 🙂
I have a lot of say.
And by God, I’m going to say it!
If you’ve been reading my blogs over the years.
You know, I am BIG on smiling.
And it makes other people feel good.
So, if you are fortunate to have a smile.
Please share it with those around you.
Unfortunately, there are many out there.
Who, just can’t find their smile.
And need yours desperately.
So shine your brilliant smile everyday.
The Universe will thank you in ways you can’t even imagine.
Yes, she’s watching you.
Just like she’s watching me.
Herman got that right!
It’s just doesn’t matter.
What matters is what you show up with to the world.
What energy are you putting out on a daily basis.
Are you contributing to the world in a good way?
Or, are you one of those people that when you leave the room.
The room lights up?
Because it matters.
What’s in you heart.
What’s in your mind.
Shine’s through you on a daily basis.
So please be AMAZING!
Please be FABULOUS!
We need all those things!
Like, a lot.
I sincerely needed to close out today’s blog with this meme.
It’s my favorite one these days (and yes, I do use it often in my blogs).
That is SO me.
I used to cry over everything and everybody.
This girl found her power.
And I hope you found yours.
Or, maybe you are one of those lucky ones who never lost it.
Unfortunately, I lost mine for a bit there.
But, I worked at getting it back.
And now that I have it.
The futures looking bright😎😎😎
