Show Us Your Sass

She had just enough sass left in her to try again. And heck, she thought. She might as well look sharp while trying. - Queenisms™

Show us your sass, Queens. There are women who need to see you shine because they’ve forgotten what it’s like to believe they can get up and try again. They’re hurt, numb, fearful and in need of your support at this moment in their own personal journey. So look sharp. Stand up. Share your story and dare to reclaim your happiness publicly, if you can. When we share our stories, we share our strength. Help someone find her sparkle again by telling her (us) how you got your sass back, won’t you?

    I can’t imagine my life any other way than the way things have gone. Even with the failures and a dozen reasons to quit, I now choose to see those failures as opportunities to flourish and shine.

    I never dreamed in a million years that I would walk away from corporate business and never look back. I had built a strong career and earned a good income, but I was so unhappy. Walking away seemed natural and I’ve never been so connected to my life as I am now.

    What I chose to do was listen to my intuition and follow my heart. Change of this magnitude from just living my life for an income to making a life was messy, out of my comfort zone and filled with taking risks but once I made the decision, in my heart I knew that there was no going back. I can say from this point in my life, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    My life road has been filled with twists and turns, successes and failures. It has gone in so many directions before I arrived at the point I am at now. I’ve volunteered, I launched and closed a business and I’ve worked in the small medical clinic, I started another business which was a failure before it really launched. But, each step on this journey has been a part of the process of change necessary to be where I am at in my life today. When I am too hard on myself, I stop what I am doing and remember where I’ve come from and see where I am in that moment, it boggles my mind every time. I nurture myself, I give myself the benefit of the doubt, I take time to be with me and have a chat to discover my reason for discontent with who I am. I shower myself with love.

    Six years later, here I am in the development stage of my third business. What has kept me going is my dream, knowing in my heart that I have a purpose and an important place in the world or I wouldn’t be here. It has been work, struggle and determination to stay on track with what feels good to me. There were times when I wanted to give up and just go back to what I knew even though I was unhappy. But then the Universe sends love notes to me through a person who would say something out of the blue that made me realize the effect that my strength and courage to go on helped them to do the same.

    It doesn’t matter how many people I help, it matters that one person was effected, that one person chose to change, that one person chose to try again, that one person remembered that she had a light to shine. That one person loved herself enough to know that she was here for a reason.

  2. This Queen title, I think about it. It makes me stand up straight. It gives me that certain air. there another site I dig where there coming from, but I can’t call myself a dog.
    This is our time, all the time we’ll ever have. Enjoy your life. I was so starved for love, a human touch. this is what happen. I took a bus trip and a man sat next to me, started talking
    and listening to me. it was nice, then when we got off the bus, he kiss me. I never saw that
    coming. there something to the sleeping beauty kiss. I feel like it 1972. that how long I’ve
    been out of it. He’s not the one, but thanks for waiting me up to my self.

  3. I got my sass back by giving my self time to paint everyday. I stick to to it like religion because it’s too easy to put everyone else’s needs first. I’m painting just for myself because it makes me happy and not giving a fig for anything else. Every canvas is an experiment and an adventure.

    Queen Laura, Thank you so much for sharing this part of your story. You cannot imagine how many people will be helped by knowing there is always something more, even in the face of what seems like permanent unhappiness. You rock!
