Here it is, my new storage unit to hold all the Pop Weds decor... I kinda got a little choked up taking this picture. Some would ask,” why it’s a storage unit?” Here’s why... When I look at this storage unit I see a symbol of a commitment. I committed myself to these items to make my company grow more than I could ever imagine. I’m investing in a special place for them. Instead of giving in (which I’ve wanted to so many times) i committed to renting them a home. I think about where I started almost a year ago to create affordable weddings barely scraping by myself. Almost Every penny has gone right back into Pop Weds because I see the value in what it will be.
I see this storage unit as something to look back on from humble beginnings. One day, I know I’ll have a large storage space, a building, venue, everything I want now, but have to wait for. I can’t wait to look back one day at this picture and say...yes! I did it.
My whole life I was afraid to fail. I saw my dad fail when he was a husband & father when he went to prison. I saw my mom feel like a failure to provide for us. I saw myself fail at school because my own teachers would call me a stupid little girl. They didn’t know it was because I was going through so much and I would cover my face with my arms and pretend to sleep. I was afraid to fail, but I know I WONT ever fail because failure isn’t failing. It’s God getting you on your best path.
I’m so greatful for all and who I have today. Thank you Ronald Stevens Jr. for being the best husband & father.
