A Quick Note On Goals From The Heart vs. Ego
After sharing my life changes last week, the question I got most was, “sooo, what’s next?!”

It was as though people didn’t believe me when I said that I was going to blog full time. There had to be something else, some new company or some new idea.

But the truth is, the answer to what’s next is truly quite simple: happiness.

All that I want is to be happy. I want to take a pause from severe stress, focus on myself and this site, and enjoy my life before diving into a new venture. What’s next is blogging and just being.

And let me tell you something, that feels really good. I feel like for the first time in a long time, my goals are coming from my heart and not my ego. And as much as I believe ego takes you far (very far), it can also drag you down. This experience, landing where I’ve landed, has taught me that hanging your ego up every once in a while can be quite liberating.

I know this post is short, but it was important for me to publish. I’ve seen, women especially, have pressure to go, go go, do, do, do, and I’m trying my best to place those pressures out of my head and instead listen to my heart.

Have you experienced this before? I’d love to open a discussion about it. More to come I’m sure!

  1. Authenticty is what I strive for but in the world we as woman have to wear different faces.Getting out of that mind set takes effort. I have to work on my thinking 1day at a time which enables me to grow and to listen to my intuitive voice rather than my ego.

  2. Hey Geri,

    Im not here to challenge you, and I wish you all the best in your journey. But for someone who is on the other side of blogging success and who firmly believes I have a message to share but have no clue how to get it out there, much less to become successful at it, I am desiring go go go. I want the ego and the mindset and the tenacity for success. I do hope and pray that some day I will be on the other side of a successful blog/ message.

    All the best in your new venture.

    One Love

  4. It’s all balance and that balance is different for each of us. We help our clients design their homes to be a part of the balance…not a problem. It is all doable with a little planning and acceptance life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.-Laurel Bledsoe
