If you've been following along on Instagram, you know I've been in Mexico this past week!
I was such a great trip full of family time, laying by the pool, and really just doing NOTHING. Which felt absolutely amazing. We went on many adventures (pics below!!), so I hope to be able to share more pictures from the other towns we visited. But, enough about me... let's get to the post.
Today I wanted to talk about MOTIVATION, since it is something I think makes it so hard to start a business in today's world. Staying motivated in the midst of comparing yourself (I know you aren't supposed to, but I mean c'mon that's impossible) to other Instagrammers, Youtubers, 20 year old millionaires, etc can be so detrimental to your motivation to get out there and start your one-man shop.
And to be honest, this happens to me all of the time. Some days I really don't feel like posting and I definitely don't feel motivated, but after coming back from Mexico though I feel SO MOTIVATED. Motivated to write my posts, take pictures, and do the other stuff I kinda don't like about blogging like...hashtags. Now let's get to the juicy stuff, like why.
Traveling Gives You Perspective
When you detach yourself from the current world you created for yourself you really see why you started and why you want to continue. You forget about likes and followers and focus on the why of your business. It also gives you actual time to think of new content ideas since your brain doesn't feel any pressure to come up with something amazing.
Really it just gives you a break from the real life which allows your creativity to flow and for you to focus on what is really important to you and your business.
How do you get motivated? Let me know on Insta or stores
p.s. Don't worry I have more pictures from the Sunday market that I will post later! Those are super cool as well...but we will get to that later!
