I’ve been trying really hard to stay motivated as a small business owner.

For the most part, I’m in it alone.

My closest people, the ones who I let see everything, really don’t understand a lot about what I do. Sometimes, I don’t understand what it is I really do.

This week has been one of those weeks.

Today, I did a candle gazing meditation, and THANK YOU SPIRIT.

It was everything that I needed.

The candle told me a story, my story, and it reinforced what my son and I were just talking about, when you show up in the public eye.

It can be hard when you have haters, even just one tiny little hater, can break your heart, Spirit and ego.

Sure, you put up a wall of steel, but their voices still seem to ring the loudest.

The candle told me a story today and it said - keep going.

When I first lit it, it burned so high and bright. There were little pieces of flame shooting up into the sky, escaping the community of the larger flame. Then, it became so low, that it seemed like the flame was going to snuff itself out.

It really struggled to get back to its full strength and rise, but it did.
