I'm Done Apologizing

"For God's gifts and his call are irrevocable."--Romans 11:29
 

 

I just finished attending the most amazing business conference for women: Christy Wright's Business Boutique. Let me start by saying, if you're a woman and interested in business in any shape or form, run, don't walk, to get a ticket for this event. It. Will. Change. Your. Life. 

It did mine. 

I haven't even had time to digest the information yet. I actually left a little early so I can get back to my son before he goes to bed, but I can already tell this conference has set me on fire!  

Those who know me know I am a passionate person. But now I feel like I'm about to explode with renewed passion for my company and Kristin King Music.  

So get ready! If you followed my journey before this conference, you may not recognize me afterward. In a good way.  

While I was sitting in an incredible talk yesterday, Christy Wright said something that practically punched me in the stomach. She said, “Quit apologizing for your business, for what you do.” 

I thought, Bingo, that is me. I'm a little different, I get that. Not everyone around me understands my passion for writing, creating, and being an artist in its many forms. But too often, I apologize for who I am. I second guess the gifts and talents God has placed inside of me and by doing that, it's almost like I'm trying to diminish them. What ends up happening is that I diminish my impact.  

Well, no more. I am here to declare that I am done apologizing for who I am. From this day forward, I'm going to be as authentic as I can be. 

So allow me to introduce myself: 

I am Kristin King, proud wife and momma and daughter of the Most High. I own Kristin King Music, a company that I'm passionate about. I create products that help others be authentic and live their dreams. I love serving God through the avenue of entrepreneurship. I hope to serve as an inspiration to women around the globe so they too will stop apologizing and rise up to be the person they've been created to be.  

I'm finished seeking the approval of others when I've already received approval from the One who created me.  

I am done apologizing for my gifts from God. As the verse above says, they're “irrevocable.” I can't give them back, and why would I want to when they bring me so much joy to walk in? Instead I'm going to start living them out, day by day, post by post, interaction by interaction so that the real me comes shining through.  

Cheers to being the people God created us to be, using the gifts He so generously bestowed upon us!
