When all your hard work finally pays off
Hard work pays off! Ya, girl just found out she is a finalist for Best Personal Development Blog on Infinity Blog Awards. I am making a video to show my appreciation! All of the hard work paid off. The long hours, the self-doubt, and multiple meltdowns proved that I am making a difference.  I never made a post about this but I think I finally should. I am not a gloater or a show-off and it feels kind of weird making a post like this… But I want to share what happens when your hard work starts to pay off. As a blogger or even just a business owner… We all start out the same way. We are a one-woman/man show. Wearing all types of hats at different times in the day. Sometimes it's multiple hats all at the same time. For me being a blogger and I’m sure others can relate… we post content, Instagram posts, stories, make YouTube videos. We do whatever we think will help our website. Our goal is to eventually have this be our full-time job. ***FREEBIE*** Sign up for a 30-day personal growth challenge on my freebie page - https://ourredonkulouslife.com/ Don't forget to follow!

I feel like a FRAUD rant and How to get over imposter syndrome
I talked about having a wave of imposter syndrome come over me. I felt like I was a fraud and just needed to vent about it and give myself a pep talk. It is hard to boost your confidence when you put too much pressure on yourself. I am on a personal growth journey and need help figuring it out...Because sometimes I feel like I don't fit in and that I feel like a fraud. Imposter syndrome is something I suffered from this week. So let's talk about what it is and how to get over imposter syndrome, the 5 types of imposter syndrome you can experience, and how not to feel like a fraud. So we can find joy, happiness, growth and definitely stop feeling like an imposter.   ***FREEBIE*** Sign up for a 30-day personal growth challenge on my freebie page - https://ourredonkulouslife.com/  New upload every Saturday! ♡ ► Music Credit: Casey Neistat Music Song: Jordyn Edmonds - Madness Music in this video Learn more Listen ad-free with YouTube Premium Song One Step Beyond Artist Madness Album One Step Beyond Licensed to YouTube by WMG (on behalf of Warner Records Label); Hexacorp (music publishing), Polaris Hub AB, UNIAO BRASILEIRA DE EDITORAS DE MUSICA - UBEM, BMI - Broadcast Music Inc., LatinAutorPerf, and 15 Music Rights Societies  What would you like me to discuss next?

Welcome Back!
So here is the plan. I want to start using this blog as a diary. We are going to get real and raw by talking about my childhood, being a teenager, an adult, my experiences, my dreams, and what I am doing to become a better version of myself. Because I talked about doing shadow work, but never shared what I was working through.   In the next week, I will be thinking of ideas to talk about, film for YouTube, Might even possibly restart my podcast up again…  Then a week from now the new and improved Michele/Our Redonkulous Life is coming to spill all the tea. Because all I ever wanted for this blog was to inspire others. Maybe help people who might have or are in similar situations.  So mark your calendars. APRIL 30, 2021 is when the shit show goes live. But for PG’s sake, I am calling it figuring out who I am as an adult.
