Are you the girl that gets dressed to run to Stop & Shop to buy bread?
If so, kudos to you. I am the girl that runs to Stop & Shop wearing whatever was closest to me and I stare longingly at the girl who took 2 minutes to put herself together and looks effortlessly fly. I know deep down that I have the ability to be that girl, but for some reason I won't let myself.
I always feel like I need to reach "the next level" before I can do certain things. I can't wear the flowy shirts and leggings until I lose another 10lbs. I can't where my hair in a certain style until it grows to a certain length. I can't speak up in meetings at work until I have been there for 1 full year...I don't know exactly where these stipulations come from... but I have them. And sadly, I force myself to live by them.
Amber is constantly telling me that I have the ability to be fly and do all of the amazing things that I have on my bucket list, but I still have this inner feeling that I don't deserve it yet. Deserve is such a strong word, I know, but I don't allow myself to get past the barriers that I have created.
So what does this have to do with Work It Out, Gurl?
I feel like this is the mission of WIOG. To make women everywhere fly. We are both career-oriented super busy women who want to run the world and help our fellow friends do the same. We are always looking to find ways to better ourselves from the inside out. We share resources, successes, failures, and just life lessons with you. Hoping that it will inspire anyone who reads OR that you can offer some insight to help us out.
So I hope that we have been able to touch a few of you out there in the great abyss of the blogging world. I know many of you have touched us. We look forward to continuing to bring you fresh content AND even more tips and tricks on how to make your life easier.
