You Can’t Avoid the Work


This week’s post may sting slightly but know that it’s all in love.

Are you ready?

Okay, listen…

You can’t avoid “THE WORK”

Look, if you subscribe to my weekly emails or follow me on social media, it’s because there’s something in you that believes you’re destined for greatness. There’s something in you that resonates with change.

Something inside of you recognizes that you have a gift. But the gift isn’t free.

The gift isn’t free.

Responsibilities are attached and people don’t tell you that being “gifted” is just the beginning.

Have you ever been in a relationship with someone? Business, romantic, platonic – it doesn’t matter. Do you realize how much you have to talk to that person, explain to that person, and ensure you are on the same page as you interpret ideas and concepts?

And when you have a disagreement, you have to fight together to stay aligned. If you change or the other person changes, you have to be in tune with those changes and even communicate more.

You only do that if you value that relationship. It’s a daily process that you get to endure with someone else. It’s THE WORK.

Now, take that same principle and apply it to yourself. You’re in a relationship with your gifts. And you have to learn how your gifts work, when and where to use them, who and what you need to be supported, and why only YOU can do what you’re destined to do.

“But Vannesia, I just want to do my thing!”




It’s not just about YOU.

Some people are waiting for you to become who you’re called to be. When you procrastinate or lag, it’s preventing them from seeing the work in action.

This is exactly why I talk about various topics like resting, working, community, faith, and everywhere in between. I’m just here to give you the tools.

It’s up to you to build this life.

If you’re dissatisfied with anything in your life right now, know you have the power and the tools to change it. Grab your hammer, we got some work to do.
