“Remember who is in charge of you.”
-Tim Grover

A mama I know is actively trying to become an influencer.  She posts 3x a day pictures of herself in pretty outfits and does workout videos. 
I am on Facebook and I see allll the ads.  Doesn't it sometimes seem that the algorithm is 50/50 ads and content. 
I go to Twitter to seek out my favorite.  (@attackathletics)
I read in groups what the others are doing.  What they are promoting. 
I connect on LinkedIn with so many too.  (Hidden gem.  LinkedIn is NOT dead.)
I watch my friends and peers on IG.  They are at the beach.  They are creating value.  It's one or the other. 
I watch VIDEOs and LIVE videos and watch.  

Everyone is trying to find their place. 
Everyone is trying to find their thing.  

I am no different. 
I know this. 

But it's too much. 
It's so much it makes my head spin. 

Add in comments.  Commentary.  Passion.  
I finally blocked someone on Facebook.  Her comments seemed to always be negative and rubbed me the wrong way. 

Practically it was best for me to step away.  
Step away from the self-imposed co-dependency. 
Step away from the rabbit hole that sucks you dry. 
Step away from everyone else's thoughts and reclaim my own. 
Reclaim my power. 

Say what?? 
Yes, even me. 
I am the "confident" one.  
But it happens.  
Sometimes, I find my mind off on a tangent.
I find myself going down a rabbit hole.

But then you must stop.  Stop.
You must stop it.  
Stop listening and stop digging. 
Start listening to the one person the one voice that knows you best. 

You, my dear.  Listen to you.

Quick side note from Ashleigh.  Here are my most favorite tools ever.

  • For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings.  My walk always becomes a power walk after listening. 
  • To focus during the day I love to focus@will.  They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does.  I blare the classical music.  I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
  • Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away.  She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money!  Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny.  Not. going. to. lie.
