UNBROKEN / by Brittney Hogan

"The real challenge of growth - mentally, emotionally, and spiritually - comes when you get knocked down. It takes courage to act" - Unbroken / motivational movie embedded below.

This morning I set out to finish designing the Virago Fitness catalog that we will hand out at the MAGIC WWD Convention in Las Vegas. There is so much pressure on us for this show, that I think it stunting my creativity for this catalog. 

I took a break from it, and opened my bank account. I started to think about all of the things I had to pay for involving Virago, and once it is all paid for, there isn't much left for this month. Then I started thinking about all of the things I could buy with this money for me, for other people, for our house, for my camping trip this weekend… A new shirt, a dress, plants for our garden, new pants for my fiancé, etc. 

Then my friend sent me this video. Take the time and watch it. In fact, watch it every morning before you start your day.

What was I thinking? I am making Virago happen. I am finally living my dream. It is hard work, but all good things are. It is the biggest risk I've ever taken. It's stressful. It's scary, but you have to spend money to make money. You have to give to get. You have to try. Here I go… Back on track!
