Monday's Mantra

I’ve been feeling a lot of judgment from people lately. Even the guy at Staples laughed at me last week when he read my company name on my card. But really? I may not be doing something that they consider important, but it’s important to me.

People will judge you for anything you do. For getting that degree in Philosophy. For blogging. For not wanting children. For moving home. For just daring to be you.

All that matters is that you love yourself. They don’t matter.

I love this! Great advice for the week! I got the same thing when people find out the company I used to work for. It's ridiculous.

Some people are just so stupid. The fact it was a man laughing at your business name just shows he doesn't get it, I think it's the perfect name for you business. Some people just don't think. For example - one day I was at Starbucks and I had just come from a business networking event and had my business name tag on that reads:
"Streeter, LTD: The Shop (w/ logo)
Kristina Streeter"
The guy snickers and says.. "So..you own your own business, huh?"
I was like, "yes I do."
And he laughs and said "I figured so since your company named matched your last name..."
What the...?! And...your point.

People just don't get it, and I've learned to just not care!

Great quote! We need to be reminded of this a lot! There's always people wanting to bring us down. But they're trying to bring us down because we're above them!
Have a beautiful day, Hun!
