The F*@$ It Bucket
It’s a hard thing to deal with. But I’ve finally figured out that it’s always going to be present, and it’s never really going to end. Every single person you come across is going to have some kind of judgment or opinion about your life, and how you choose to live it, good or bad.
It’s your job to choose if those people who are passing negative judgements and opinions are worth the internal struggle that makes you even care what they actually think!
A few years ago I started my blog. When I started I had an unbreakable mindset, to hit the ground running. And do it because I love it, and it’s a hobby of mine that gives me a creative outlet besides doing hair.
As soon as I started, I felt the outside forces coming at me. Lots of comments were made about me. Positive, Negative, and indifferent.
I let all of those things scared me out of it. And just focused solely on my business. I let the haters into my head and heart, which ultimately made me struggle so deeply inside that I completely gave up and put a halt on everything.
I’ve heard the quote, “Stay in your lane”, more times than I can count. So, I really dug deep.
I’ve been doing some soul searching, and I’ve gotten to the root of everything.
I always let that quote just sit on the surface. Someone would pass judgment, and on the outside I’d let it roll off my sleeve and act like it didn’t phase me...but when I’d go to bed at night, all I would think about were those comments, and judgements. And they inevitably ate away at me until I finally did give up.
Within the past few weeks alone, I’ve felt a change within myself. I’ve stopped caring as much. Which I know is easier said than done. But the good energy that’s been coming in and out of the salon, has really given me such a spark, and such a drive to continue to stay positive. To actually stay in my lane, and not let others negativity get me down.
Surround yourself with positive energy, and bright spirits. People that make you feel alive. People that inspire you, lift you up, and make you want to be a better version of yourself.
Stop letting negative people that are just going to bring you down, into your head & heart.
Believe in yourself, and trust your gut.
To close this, the next time someone passes judgement on you...use my motto this year and just, “Put it in the fuck it bucket”.
