My Drive

I’m not driven by money. Don’t get me wrong, when someone hands me cash to take care of myself, I feel loved and cared for and grateful but money is not nor has ever been a driver for me to accomplish things.

When I’m truly heard, supported, and understood that is what gives me the space to excel in my projects, work, and life in general. Over the years, I’ve learned to provide those things to myself. I was prompted to think about this from my last post titled Sunday Rest Days. I shared a video of Maya Angelo talking about how important it is to protect that sacred space inside us. And how important it is to forgive but still say, no. I think what she says is the best insight on ways we can truly hear, support, and understand ourselves.

Most of my life I bent myself inside out to make sure other’s lives were comfortable. But I wasn’t comfortable. My life wasn’t even close to where I wanted it to be. Now, when I hear Maya Angelo speak on protecting that sacred place, I feel like I’m exactly where I need to be. I feel like I’m finally on the right track.

And so now with a healthier mindset (I’m still learning) I can feed my drive and continue to create a life the suites me.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
