A little over a year ago, I had to overcome some challenges. I got evicted from my apartment complex and had to stay with a friend for a while. Once I was able to find a new place, it was too far from my job so I had to quit. I had just moved to a new city, in a new apartment, and now no job. At the time, I didn’t care. I wasn’t put on this earth to stress or punch a clock. I channeled all my energy into revamping TheMoodypool.com to be the safe space we know and love today. My mom was focused on how I would pay my bills and was pressuring me to go back to work or sell some products. She really thought I lost it when I told her I wasn’t selling my line anymore. That part of me was over and done with.
I was inspired to started creating homemade incense, floor washes, and teas. It was time for something bigger, something better. I spent over a thousand dollars buying everything I felt I need to get TheMoodyPool business out in the community. I purchased business cards, post cards, notebooks, pens, shirts, etc. The goal was to get out in the community and find a job at a local boys and girls club. I spent the entire three months I was unemployed learning as much as I could about self-care, healing, and essential oils. Never once leaving the house to get out in this new community that was so foreign to me.
I write this post today to encourage you to learn to have faith in divine timing. I decided almost a year and a half ago what I was destined to do yet, things are just coming together at this moment. When I created this safe space, I didn’t have all the Tools, Knowledge, and Guidance I have today. I needed to work hard to get to this point. Sometimes we have an idea, but we aren’t where we need to be to execute said dream. Do NOT give up on your dreams, apply pressure!
I had no idea at the time how to make incense, teas, or floor washes and I had negativity from others holding me down. “You won’t make any money. ” “People won’t buy those items.” I explain repeatedly, I don’t do what I do for money. I would’ve quit a long time ago. I do what I do because it’s me- it’s in my heart! A year and a half later I am getting ready to relaunching MoodyTherapy.com with every item I envisioned to sell before but was not able to plus so much more.
We must value purpose in this life over money and success. Not that I can survive without money or that the goal isn’t to be self-employed, it absolutely is. BUT we have to trust in divine timing and do the work in between to get to our goals and find purpose.
