Business has been a place for me to practice setting and lovingly maintaining boundaries.
Boundaries on projects (no to scope creep).
Boundaries on time (I just can’t do it all and that’s okay).
Boundaries on worth (yep, that price is correct).
Boundaries on energy (when can I show up to an equal exchange of positive, supportive energy - ‘cause I’m all in. And everywhere else…not so much).
Setting these boundaries haven’t always been easy. I’ve fumbled a few times. People-pleaser in recovery.
But it HAS been a beautiful place to practice and find the line between HARSH BITCH MODE and a firm but loving no.
Feeling it out along the way.
And, of course, because business is a fast track to personal growth I’ve also learned to carry over my boundary setting wisdom to the rest of my life.
