I've been channeling the Goddess Pele after a reading with the wonderful @thegathererkauai ⚪️I particularly struggle with being a "people pleaser" and I'm often burdened with weight of what others expect from me. Running a business via social media can be exhausting and at the end of the day, I have to ask myself, "Who am I doing it for?" Yes, getting likes and followers is how you keep your business growing but when that's all your social media presence has become, it lacks the life and authenticity that should be the fire and force behind your work. I'm making an effort to feel defined by more than just the reaction of others ✨ "If you listen to the sound of your heart and breath, you’ll recognize the ancient rhythms of your own eternal drumming. This forever connects you to the Mother of all Creation, and to the sound of the planet Earth. These rhythms cannot be faked or forged; they’re natural and eternal. What part of you are you trying to ignore? What part of you has been overly concerned with pleasing others, to the detriment of hearing the sounds of your own rhythm? …Don’t your own dreams deserve the same respect that you accorded everyone and everything that you love?"
