Does your family make you feel guilty for being creative? Do you think there’s something wrong with loving your work?
Are there people around you telling you things that make you feel bad about what you’re doing in your craft business?
Today, I got an interesting newsletter containing a funny and informative video from my friend, Renae Christine of Rich Mom Business.
The best way to have a fulfilling life is to spend your time doing things that you genuinely care about. However, in life, you will undoubtedly come across people who will try to question your capabilities and interests.
While you should strive to be a sensitive, caring person on the one hand, you must also be tough-skinned and not let people affect your happiness.
If you truly love what you’re doing and want to take time for yourself, you need to let go of the negativity in your life and spend your time expanding your skills instead.
It’s nearly impossible to enjoy what you do if you’re always carrying around guilt. You’ve got to stop yourself when you start worrying about things you can’t change or have no control over… when you fret over how people perceive you and your hobby/business.
Call it tough love. Snuff negative, counterproductive thoughts and feelings the moment they enter your mind… and be kind to yourself every minute of the day.
