I just quit a job today. One of 3. I used to have 4, not counting being a momma.
Here I am laying in the sun like a kitty, instead of working.
Two weeks ago I got a work trade job with a fancy online Ayurveda lady. She is doing what I thought I wanted to do. She is making money selling health programs online.
The interview process helped me a ton in many ways. She made me think long and hard about abundance and what I want in my life. And....most importantly what I would do to get it.
See... she hired me to make memes for her...
Like this one. Except hers would be more fancy and specific to Ayurveda. In exchange I would get a business success program that lasts nine months. Totally seemed awesome! And it really is...and she is too and so are her programs.
So why did I quit?
Well a few reasons, but the most important one is this...
I am not rich and nor do I want to be. I don't want to spend a ton of money on tech support, a ton of time in meetings and building a keyword search defined online empire that can only serve privileged people, you know, people with extra time and money. (Which I would be giving up in order to have more time and money?)
I want to serve the masses, the people like me. People that want a better more peaceful world and are doing the little things everyday to make it happen.
I'm done buying into the old stereotypes, that I need to be richer, thinner, and more of whatever I'm not.
I've decided to do it my way... To be an inventor of a new way, one of the many ways to live and grow and be part of the continuing evolution of our human consciousnesses.
I did the same thing with my logo. I am going against all old school systems that try to make me feel less than.
Professional people said, keep the logo simple and in my opinion boring. Like the Nike swoosh, they said.
No. I don't think so.
I am not Spa Envy, I am not Deepak Chopra. I am not an online empire that was built with thousands of dollars
I am Amber French, a ghetto yogini, who has brought myself up my way from the age of 15. I have gone from homelessness, to being the owner/operator of a micro healing center. With little to no "resources" other than my love, passion and the endless support of my community. These resources are more precious than any techie thing I could buy.
I am letting go of what the old paradigm says I should do and how I should do it.
I am going to continue to provide little seeds of peace to each person I meet. And most importantly myself.
I don't need to be "better" than I am. I don't need to be "more" professional or tech savvy.
I only need to be me.
I hope you'll join me in quitting all the social constructs, all the advices, all the new diets, exercises programs, self help gimmicks, flashy online programs that promise to change you. Quit with me won't you? Quit striving to live up to someone else's standards.
I'm just gonna be...Me.
I look forward to seeing you be you... And know many of you do and you inspire me!
I am a passionate humanitarian on a quest to create a beautiful, peaceful life that is available to the whole world!
