The 'Build-Up'

Updated: Dec 4, 2019

Wow! I can't believe its been this long since I last put out a post. Bad Stephie!! It has truly been a very busy year. Between work, my photography business, and working on another project my time has been quite limited this year. 2019 has been a whirlwind! But I guess thats to be expected in what I call the 'build-up'. I do, however, realize that I must be much more active on here.

So, I guess you're wondering what a 'build-up' is? Not to be confused with the accumulation of dirt and grime on something...not talking about that kind of build up folks. What I'm referring to is a period of time (days, weeks, months, years, etc) where you are are on a steady grind. For me personally its been a year long build up. And with any start up it can be a rough go in the beginning of it. It can feel as though you are struggling, working too hard, and you want to give up more times than you can count. This period is NOT glamorous at all! Sacrifices will need to be made. In the end those sacrifices will be worth it-but it can be mad uncomfortable at times to say the least. Its also not all bad, so don't worry if you find yourself going through a build-up period. You will learn valuable lessons about how certain things work (or don't work) and also about your own personal strength and resilience.

During the build-up period you are putting your plans in motion. And a day will soon come when all that hard work will produce some good in your life (whether that be financial, spiritual, personal, etc). So if this is your build-up period keep ya head up and keep laying your bricks. Eventually you will build something wonderful!! Build the life you want-a life you deserve! And believe that its yours. As you go further into the build-up period you'll begin to see things changing in your favor. Now you got your second wind and that will push you to continue on.

This year has grown me in so many ways. And with there being only a few more weeks left in it (can you even believe that!!?), I know that I have to make some adjustments in this new year to come. I can see the finish line on a few things so far. The thing about the build-up is to be ready for the 'come-up'-that period where what you hoped for manifests itself. I can't afford any set backs though, especially this late in the game, so I will stick to the plan. And I hope you will as well too! We must stay in the press my friends. Be ready...I'm already claiming 2020 a come up year for me!!

Until next time...
