You're Not A Bitch, You're Just Building an Empire

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

Now let me explain.

Although I’m sure just by this title,

so many clicks and switches, ahas and YASS’s just flowed through your mind.

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

So STOP feeling bad for saying NO to the people, places and things that no longer serve you.

That continue to suck your energy and leave you feeling less than to do your creative geniusey work that you’re here to do in the world.

If you don’t respect your time and energy, no one else will of course.

Because it all starts INSIDE of YOU.

It took me a while to feel ok with saying no.

To old friends who craved drama, to toxic people in my life who just wanted to control, to the well meaning people who simply wanted to grab coffee and “pick my brain.”

I was a chronic people pleaser, didn’t want to rock the boat, didn’t want to hurt others feelings.

and for some odd, only GOD knows why reason, I ALWAYS felt the need to respond to people immediately after they messaged or even called me ~Talk about super flow disrupter, *Shudder*~

And what I didn’t realize at first was how energetically EXHAUSTED and worn out I was from giving my time and energy to these things.

Constantly wondering WHY I didn’t have the energy, the drive, the energetic CAPACITY, to tap into flow and CREATE all the amazing things I came here to CREATE.

Why I needed so much damn sleep, when purpose and SOUL work and following your path is suppose to result in MORE ENEGY, needing LESS sleep and also above par digestion of course.

I couldn’t SEE, because I was caught in the middle of my ‘put everyone else first and Chloe LAST,’ chronic people pleaseritis, how I was running myself into the ground.

How I seemed to be working harder and harder just to keep my income in my business STEADY, the same, forget even GROWING, at that point, it was totally stagnant. Much like my energy.

I didn’t fully realize until the Universe started reflecting it back to me, basically yelling in my face, to WAKE TF UP and finally DO something about these energy leaks that just kept on leakin.

I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how many messages I would get, (and still do) from new humans and old, wanting to get coffee and “pick my brain.”

Pick my brain for business + life advice, ideas, guidance, to understand how my not so normal brain worked and how I’ve created my life the way I’ve created it.

To do over COFFEE, what my clients were actually PAYING me for.

So let me remind you, you’re NOT here to work for FREE.

And I don’t suggest you ever do.

Because let me remind you, again, you won’t ever get to the EMPIRE you so deeply desire to create if you continue on this way.

Bitchy?

Arrogant?

Possibly, if you choose to look at it that way.

But if you ever want to build this so called empire,

then you’re going to need to GET with the program and start valuing YOURSELF for once.

It’s time to focus on YOU, gorgeous!

So every morning as you do your inner work, your journaling, whatever you need to fill your cup as you ignore the millions of messages, emails and people dying to get your attention, remember-

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

As you choose to say NO to situations, people, places that don’t feel in alignment, that aren’t a hell MF yes to you anymore, remember-

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

As you decide there’s NO NEED to ever JUSTIFY or EXPLAIN why you didn’t text back, why you didn’t call when you were in town or why you don’t want to meet up for coffee to have your brain picked, remember-

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

As you slowly drift away from the old friends who choose to stay caught up in the negativity of the world, of the drama they continue to keep creating for themselves, remember-

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

As you ignore the dms in your Instagram inbox, because how on EARTH could you ever respond to everyone’s “Hey you’re gorgeous.”, “What book are you currently reading?” or “Help, what do you suggest I do about this situation???” please oh please remember-

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

As you hire a personal assistant, refuse to do your own grocery shopping and other seemingly pointless human tasks because you realize that time could be spent on CREATING and SELLING and other things that light you up, remember-

You’re not a bitch (or lazy), you’re just building an empire.

As you turn down offers, ways of making money or becoming FAMOUS online that aren’t in alignment with your soul, remember-

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire- your way.

As you REFUSE to follow the rules, the SHOULDs and COULDs of the world, because you KNOW, DEEP DOWN, that this whole thing gets to work YOUR WAY, the way you’ve always known, remember-

You’re not a bitch, you’re just building an empire.

And as you sit in that coffee shop, writing your blog, creating your next offer, creating content for your clients, looking out at all the people in the shop, wondering for a split second why you can’t just be normal, why you don’t exactly fit in or why you can’t just be happy with a safe, normal, corporate job, never forget-

You were never meant to fit into this world,

Because you’re here to create a new one.

And it doesn’t matter if people understand or not-

Because the ones who are meant to, always will.

And you never were or ever could be a bitch,

You’re just building a MF empire.
