Okay you guys… this might be a ramble, BUT I feel like I need to say it.
This week has been life changing and I feel that I just need to put it on my blog incase there is anyone else out there going through the same thing.
First I want to put it out there I am soooo grateful for my job. I mean I travel all around the world and get paid. What? Who gets that? Along with that I get the opportunity to take my husband and parents around the world with me. That is amazing, so please don’t think I am not grateful for my job.
I’ve been struggling the past month on what I am doing in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I have an amazing life with my husband in our home that I am so so so blessed to have. BUT… what am I, Katherine Kamalani, contributing to the world? What am I doing to hustle, to make a living, to make a change, a difference, to inspire and be the person I was designed to be from my creator?
So I am on my way from Nashville to LA for work and I’m thinking, “I feel like I am the luckiest gal in the whole land to have this career, but is this really what I was destined to do or be?” I am having all these thoughts plus more while traveling to LA (and this past month) and then I started to talk to this amazing lady. I won’t say her name, but she is a big vocal coach in the pop/rap industry. Somehow we started chatting and I was asking about her life and job. She begun singing a long time ago where she knew she wanted to be a singer. Slowly people started asking her to coach them on their singing and she slowly started to. She hung on really tight to being a singer and felt that she was being pulled so many directions and wasn’t happy. She then let go and allowed destiny to pull her in the direction she needed to go. Flash forward 15 years she is one the top vocal coaches in the world. She is happier than ever, above being a millionaire or anything else she wakes up and is passionate about her day to day life because of her job.
That is EXACTLY what I needed to hear. I am so hung up on seeing the world, traveling, working on bettering myself and being this person I was designed to be that sometimes I get in my head and get bummed when I am not where I feel like I should be in this moment in time. Its so easy to compare ourselves to others and what their designed to be and we need to take a moment and allow destiny (God in my eyes) pull me/us in the direction. Allow fear to be let go of our hearts and not allow it to control us. Because when we allow fear to not control those things we are wanting to do so badly we are pulled into directions and places where we are needed to be. Let go of your fear, let destiny take its course and magical things will happen.
Now please keep reading because this is where I REALLY mean it and really want to tell you, yes YOU reading this right now… that YOU are designed to do something so great. WHY? Because you are a living, breathing, unique human being. That we are created to be something MORE than what we believe ourselves to actually be.
This is where I jumped up and realized in my bag I just bought a self help book a couple weeks ago, #girlboss. I started to read it on the plane and read until we landed. It isn’t a book about getting rich quick, but rather than hustling. I can’t sit here and expect things to change doing the exact same thing. I need to hustle and when I say hustle I mean HUSTLE MAN. Whatever it is you want… that body, health, career, money, home or whatever you are wanting to achieve. We can not sit here and do the exact.same.thing over and over again day by day and get different results. It means that you utilize those 24 hours in a day and not allow yourself to waste them on unproductive things.
Now lets take it back a bit, I feel like at this moment in time I am where I am supposed to be. I am supposed to be in the home, with my husband and working my job. I love life, but I have this ache in my heart to help others and achieve something greater than what I am believing I am. I feel sometimes I am a jack of all trades. I can do a lot of stuff, but I am not an expert in one field. So that is where my hustling is going to come in play. I am going to be an expert and hustle until I am.
If you are still reading I am so happy.
But, the point of this is… Allow the possibility of what you are going for to change. Don’t allow only 1 plan to cloud other opportunities. Don’t allow fear to run your life, let go of it. You may be called somewhere, meet someone, do something that will change your whole life and be extremely happy. Also believe you are created to be something bigger than what you believe you are. If you believe it, others will too and possibilities will be endless. Finally… hustle man, flipping hustle. If you want that body, hustle for it. If you want a career change, hustle for it. If you want to learn photography, snowboarding, piano or whatever, hustle for it. If you want your business to blow up, GET UP AND HUSTLE FOR IT. Don’t just sit there and hope things will come and hopefully it will happen for you!
What I want to end with is this… there is going to be people in your life that will be your biggest cheerleaders or try to pull you down. Get rid of those not in your corner. Don’t ever allow anyone to not push you to be better or help you be the best you. Don’t ever let anyone or thing get in your head and make you feel that you are not an amazing person. Don’t let social media, family, friends, strangers, celebrities or ANYONE make you feel inadequate.Don’t do it. Seriously. Everyone has to start from the beginning one time or another. We are all special and unique… there is a plan for you and me, so make sure you hustle and follow your heart for it. Be a good person, help those around you, go be amazing, let go of the fear and freaking hustle.
Love to you all.
