I had a chance to sit down and catch up with Melonie of Fit Diva and she had a lot to say about balancing all the many roles that she plays.
“How do I manage being a wife, mom, work and enturpurnuership? Honestly this was a very hard question to unpack because, like most women majority of the time I feel like I’m failing at them all. As I grow im learning to celebrate myself more and that includes really digging deep to aknowlage I’m actually winning NOT failing at all of the hats I wear.
The best words I can use to say HOW are “FOUNDATION” AND SEASONS. I have lived to learn how to KEEP my FAITH & FAMILIES as the FOUNDATION of my roles and let everything else become important or priority over the other in its own season. I have learned how to make every role in my life work for each other in the right season. In this seasons I need my 9 to 5 to fund the vision that drives my business.
This KEEPS me super focused and determined to soak up as many tools and skills and foster good relationships from corporate America to apply to Fit Diva. Now don’t get me wrong things do fall through the cracks and some things go in lack from time to time but those times have taught me how to step back and take breaks so that I can re- assess my priorities.
When I feel like I am spinning out of control I pause and plug into my life sources. I ask for clarity from GOD and comfort from my husband and kids. These are some of the tools and concepts I apply to change the naritve of NOT being a FAILURE but a consistant SUCCESS at all of the things I have been called to do IN THEIR RIGHTFUL SEASONS”!
I can totally relate to Melonie’s message about seasons and finding balance to pursue the things God has predestined you to do!
Since I’ve been gone I’ve done a lot of reflecting. More importantly I survived corona. I was diagnosed at the end of June and it was tough for a couple weeks but I’m back to myself and more motivated than before. The worst thing about being sick is the possibility of infecting others and I passed the virus to my 15 year old son and his symptoms were a little different from mine. We’re both fine now 🙏🏾
Between corona, the BLM movement, the economy, and white Nationalist spewing hate the world is running amuck right now. So for those us who pray and are believers we need to be praying more than ever.
We’re in a crisis and no political party will save us. Be blessed.
