It’s funny how a simple question can help you reflect on your journey in life. I was recently asked about my logo. As I replied to the question using much more of an explanation than I think the person anticipated, I realized that my answer had opened up more questions about why I am on this journey to live life naturally and my desire to share my wisdom with others.
Here is what I wrote: There is a little more to this than just selecting a cool name/logo for my business(s). As a child, my family called me Resa. When I became a teen my closest and dearest friends called me Re. I associate that time in my life as a time of being carefree and adventurous. I time where I had no fear and excited about where my life journey would take me. As I became an adult the Teresa in me took control which was not a bad thing because I learned to accept responsibility, obtain wisdom and set life goals. Now I want to embrace both Re and Teresa to become the woman I am meant to be. So to finally answer your question, this will be my logo for both companies and a reminder to be open to allowing my journey to take me where the best of life leads me.
After posting this reply, I began to process what I wrote and how it made me feel. You may ask why I would fixated on my reply, it is because I worked in at a mental health facility for almost 5 years where I learned the importance of processing my thoughts and feelings. Since my thoughts were lingering I realized that I needed to take a closer look at my feelings about what why being “Re” was important to me in this time of my life.
I have wanted to start a business that promotes a lifestyle of wellness using all natural products and where I can share the knowledge that I continually seek with others. Blogging has been a beneficial part of this process by allowing me to share this with others that are like-minded. If you can relate to what I am writing then you know that not everybody gets it which can be discouraging at times.
I feel that being “Re” again will allow me to be open to opportunities and allowing them to take shape naturally. Not by forcing things to happen or being so determined to make my vision become as I see it, but allowing it to grow naturally into something beyond my imagination. I am not saying that I should discard my vision or to not set goals because I know that there must be balance in life. Being an independent, strong willed woman is also as important as being the adventurous, vivacious woman. So my question to you is who are you and who do you need to be? It’s a hard question to answer and it will need to evolve as you go along your journey in life. Follow your dreams without fear, enjoy your journey and become the person you are meant to be.
