Just a little example of why you need to build your tribe and another example as to what will make Sara cry in the morning.

Good morning wifey,

I know you're going through a tough time but I wanted you to know a couple things. 

First, you are kicking ass and taking names when it comes to running someone's life and your own business. You're one of the most motivated people I know and no one is going to stop you from achieving your dreams and goals. Something I admire about you. 

Secondly, sometimes people in life see where you are heading and don't appreciate everything you're doing. That's not your problem. You are not required or obligated to make changes for them. Especially if they are only keeping you down. 

Thirdly, you ARE surrounded by a support group and I want you to know that we are here for you. To listen, to cry, to get drunk with, and anything else you may need. We are your people and we are here to stay whether you move far away or into one of our houses.  which is looking better and better  

I just want you to remember that chasing your dreams and putting in all this work to do what you love and are passionate about is a GREAT thing. It shouldn't be punished and you should feel amazing in everything you are creating and working towards. I know you'll get to where you want to go even if there are a few bumps in the road.  keep grinding, keep shining, and keep being true to who you are. At the end of the day, that's all that really matters love you wifey have a great day and know you are loved wholeheartedly.

Let this also be another example that not everything in life is picture perfect: I've been struggling a lot lately. Between work and my photography business, I've been putting in around 65 hours a week. It's affecting my relationship with my family, affecting the progression of Sawyer, and leaving me quite exhausted. But as I've said before: I know my end goal and I'm not going to stop until I get there. My tribe knows this, have accepted this, support me through it, and realize that I will repay them one day tenfold. 

Know that you are not alone my friends, know that there are people in full HUSTLE mode too that are struggling. BUT know there are people who understand and that are going to support you through it! Just like Victoria is for me.
