I am going on a mental break of sorts. As a business owner, sometimes we need to completely step back from the situation and access it. Daily, I meet with people who feel entitled to my time, knowledge and whatever else they can squeeze out of me. I share a multitude of information because I really want other people to succeed, but when people push me past the point of appropriateness, I feel like I don’t want to help at all.
So, I have decided to take a break sorts from the advice I share on social media. I need to create better boundaries that allow me to share advice and feel great about myself. This leads me back to the very important idea that I need to create more content for the site.

As I write this post, one of my friends Jessica shared this instagram with me, “Givers have to set limits because takers don’t.” That’s how I feel some time! People will take and take, and then, when you say, “No,” all hell breaks loose. When this happens, I remember what my life coach tells me, “I can only control me.” So I need boundaries…and I am perfectly fine with telling people no. Many people just are not fine with hearing it.
Honestly, I do not take breaks very often. I tend to work and work. However, with this “sharing break,” it is more about creating boundaries. Myriah and I do a great job of sharing insight on this site. Since we want to build Imperfect Concepts 2.0 into a bigger informational source, I need a break to devise this amazing plan. I need to start thinking of content schedules, and how to go about planning the actual hiring of a social media manager full time, content manager and even advertisement sales.
On a lighter note, this vintage speedy is actually older than me. It was made in 1981 and it is one of my favorite bags. The wear on the handles was something serious. Sometime last year, I had new handles put on the bag plus had the inside and the leather cleaned. In total it cost me around $500. But, it was well worth it in my book. I hope to pass the bag down to a daughter some day.
