Confessions of a Small Biz Owner...
I gotta be honest. This past year has been hard. So many people ask how it has been with a the Covid drama. I really would love to say it’s been great! All good! But I am just not a liar and I hold great value in truth. So my truth is this past year has been so incredibly hard. Most of us are working our tails off pivoting just to keep moving.
But, do you know why it has been so hard? It’s not the working hard... it’s the constant criticism. It’s the constant division. Each and every one of us has had to make a choice how we will show up and how we will run our biz. The most disappointing thing I have witnessed is biz owners bashing other biz owners because they make a different choice. None of the choices are easy. These choices come with research, risk, and huge amounts of stress no matter what you choose.
Isn’t all of life about choices and differing opinions? Wouldn’t our world be boring if everyone was the same? Why now have we come to this place where there is no room for different thinking or beliefs?
Wildflowers... we are better than this. I know that Jesus called us to love each other. So I’m working really hard to do just that. Will you make that choice with me? In a field of roses, you are a wildflower. Now more than ever in my life I feel this is true. It does not matter what side of the fence you are on, you can choose to love all people (yes, I know that many are making it super hard). And when we choose this posture, it makes it super tough to tear them down. Agree or disagree with their choices, that’s fine. Bash them, nope. If you don’t agree, don’t shop there. We all have choices for a reason. What if everyone chose to love all people🤔🤔? What if? But I can only control me and you can control you so let’s do it! Will you join me? And I can tell you that each and every one of you are welcome on my truck. I welcome you if you are having a tough day and need a hug or to play dress up. I welcome your beautiful, smiling face. I welcome you if you vote blue or red or somewhere in between. I welcome you if you are tall or short or have big boobs or small boobs or are any shade of skin tone there is. I will even welcome you if you have curly hair or straight hair! You, yes YOU, are welcome and loved. And you know what? I can’t wait to see you❤️
