I recently attended Podcast Movement in Las Vegas with some of the industry experts and deepened my relationship with my friends, and it was an incredible experience. However, as much as I loved being there, I knew I needed to take a break from the hustle and bustle and spend some time with my family. So, I drove from Vegas to Corona on Friday to do just that.
Seeing my parents again after being away for a while was a breath of fresh air. We spent an amazing day together on Saturday, running errands and catching up. One of the things we did was pick up a new stove for the house. We even stumbled upon this cool store called Lucky Deal, which was like an Amazon Returns shop. I’ll have to tell you more about that in another post.
Once we got back home, we had a delicious lunch together. My brother and I then teamed up to install the new stove, and with his help, it was a breeze. It was remarkable how easy it was to remove the old stove and replace it with the new one with the right tools and assistance.
Throughout the day, I was reminded how much I rely on my family and community. Their support and encouragement have been a constant source of strength for me during my journey. Sharing my heart with them and all of you is something that has taken me a long time to do, but I am committed to it. By sharing my experiences, I hope to inspire others to do the same.
It’s so easy to get lost in our own thoughts and beliefs that we can do everything on our own. But the truth is, we need the support of others to thrive truly. It’s through engagement and leadership that we can find our way and make the most of our journey.
Reflecting on my weekend with my family, I’m filled with gratitude for the blessings in my life. I’m thankful for my family and friends who have been there for me through thick and thin. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my journey with all of you and to inspire others to share their own stories.
In the end, it’s the relationships we build and the people we surround ourselves with that truly matter. I encourage you to reach out to your loved ones and community and let them know how much they mean to you. And if you’re struggling, know that you’re not alone. We’re all in this together, and together we can find the strength and support we need to thrive.
