For those of you who do not know, I created this blog because it was time to separate Jessica Sunier from FitPOWER. However, when you create a business and it becomes your baby, you have never truly separated yourself. FitPOWER is as much a physical, emotional, and mental entity, as the people in my life. I used to look at this negatively because people who were not taking the risk of building a business told me that people (meaning "them") were more important than what has now become my life's work. I wanted to scream at them time and time again, "But don't you know how fulfilling this is for me? That by me building this I am becoming a better version of myself, and all of my successes and failures will make me a better person for my people (them) and community." I do not think they truly heard me. But many of "them" are not around anymore, and that is ok.
Then I sighed and thought to myself, "Well, fuck." I will say I am not a religious person, but I have always thought of myself as spiritual. Not tarot reading spiritual. Just a feeling of truth in my heart and gut that the universe had more to offer than what I could simply see with my eyes. Our creators could be another alien race for all I care. We should just not be so arrogant to think we are all that is.....but I digress.
What did my tarot reading reveal, you may be wondering? A whole lot of "how'd you know that" specifics about myself and my business. I won't break down what my reading was, but I do suggest that if it is something that interests you then by all means, have a reading done. The more I researched about tarot the more I realized that it is simply a guide for your intuition. I don't believe in the whole "tell you future" part of tarot mysticism. But I do feel they can be a valuable tool when it comes to influencing decisions and making choices. Placebo affect or not, it's fun. And I'll tell you what, that reading stopped me from dragging my feet about my business and it encouraged me to be a little more bold. The second I got back from New Orleans I set my wheels in motion and FitPOWER has taken off in the last 4 months alone. There is something to be said about that, and I'll embrace a little mysticism in my life if it creates a new way to observe my world in a positive light.
There is so much more I could write as I get deeper into what my business was and what my business is becoming, but I honestly hope you'll just ride this wave with me. If you'd like to help see FitPOWER grow, or just watch it's progress here are a few things you can do:
Here's to hoping my pre-teen business doesn't develop an attitude! Cheers!
Thoughts on Vacation Coffee
The world is brighter, the moments sweeter, and the coffee bolder while on vacation. Vacation coffee is the slowness of the morning before the world wakes up. It is the smell of your favorite roast and the rustling of crisp pages turning in a book.
