Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.
Starting over has lit this desire in me to look inward and reevaluate myself as a woman, mother, dreamer and momprenuer. I often times wonder if my decisions for growth and financial stability are solely based on my laser focus to obtain stability and security or is it motivated by my desire for my earthly wants? We all want success, we all want to be able to afford the life we’ve dreamed of. This is my period of manifesting that life for myself unapologetically!
As I start this journey the doubts of course started to flow...Your a single mother of three! You have no time for dreaming... Sacrifice,that’s your role now! It’s not looked upon highly for a mom, of all people to put her wants and desires above her children’s.
In doing the self-work and changing my mindset, I’m learning my success IS my child’s success. Seeing their mom build from the ground up no matter how many times she failed or how many times the answer was no, she just kept swimming. That I am limitless and in order to teach that mentality to my daughters, I had to reach a vibration that was no longer accessible to negative thoughts.
I started reading about other people who continued to push pass life’s challenges. It truly changed and saved my life and if my journey could help anyone who has been shackled by their mistakes then I pray my story is an encouragement to never give up on what you want in life.
So what did I do? I sold and gave everything away and trashed most of my belongings and I made my way from California to New York. Why? This is MY chance to find and live for Chantera. I think it’s easy to tell yourself as a parent you can’t because of my child. I’m here to say you can and you have to for your child. Them seeing you unhappy, unfulfilled and lonely with in yourself is going to grow a woman or man that is designed to repeat your choices, think your thoughts and it’s my mission to break those generational chains for my three beautiful daughters.
I’ve only just begun this journey of self. What is that? Journey of self? For me it’s taking all the mistakes, heartbreaks and people that have imprisoned me, one by one removing and allowing myself to heal from it and let it go. It’s the moment I’ve completely given my life to The Most High God and relinquishing my pain and placing it in his hands.
I wake up with gratitude, pray and meditate this provides balance in my extremely busy life.
TheStyleGunn is evolving into something I have been dreaming of since we started and I’m so excited to share this journey with you!
