Founder Friday: Don't Give Up with Erica Reid

Share Shop

It is a new day, a new season, a new horoscope (LIBRA), a new month, and the same year. Embrace it all. We have no choice and cannot control any of the above, so we can only choose how to face it if we are fortunate enough to do so. Let’s keep pushing through. Let’s choose to keep moving forward. Do not give up. I am holding your hand. You are also holding your own hand. Pull yourself up. You are not alone.

I know and understand it is hard and tiring to keep cooking, being the teacher, cleaning, doing the laundry, but don’t give up nor let this get the best of who you are. We are more than this. If you have age-appropriate children, have them pitch in more; perhaps give them some chore responsibilities to help. We cannot do this all alone. Anyone that thinks we can ask them to try it for a week. 

We are living in a temporary moment that may feel like forever. I promise we have more to keep striving for than what we can see and do at this moment. Be hopeful. I know that may seem easier said than done, but we must. Are you ready to stop right now? I am not. I am in another chapter and I kind of like it. I am so grateful for where I am right now, and I am grateful for my family and friends, although we do not get to see each other in person. I am grateful to hear their voices. I won’t quit and you won’t either. It is not an option. We must make this right for ourselves. Don’t give up.

We have to feed ourselves mentally and physically, not only by the food we are putting on our fork, but what is off the fork is just as equally or even more important. Stay rooted, connected, and nurture those authentic relationships. Make real quality time for yourself.

Sit still for a moment, ask yourself, (while we cannot plan anything as we can only live day to day) what can I do right now? Who can I help right now? Where can I be of service right now? Take a step back and see where you can shift. Don’t give up.

Let’s celebrate what really matters. Our life! Are you waiting only for an event, your birthday, or a holiday to do this? Why? Celebrate now. Treat yourself. You do not have to spend money to do so. You can, but you do not have to. We have come so far. Our days are gifts. They are so precious. At the end of the day, that is all that is truly significant for us, another day. We can zoom all we want to fill hours of our days up, but then what? All this technology is not helping Mother Earth right now- she is having to work extra hard. Let’s do our part and help her. Stay positive, do not give up. We must grow through what we go through. Remember, you are a nécessité.
