Why hello there. It's been a little bit since I've poured my thoughts onto this canvas here. Truth: I've been journaling, traveling, and having the best conversations because I needed a little soul love. Well, I'm back. And things are going to be a bit different from here on out. I love coming full circle. It happens to me a lot actually. Do you ever find that the thing you loved and moved away from (ie. work, hobbies, style, books, topics, etc.) you inevitably find a way to bring back into your life? Well I do this. A lot.
Let's call it a 'gut check.' It's that moment when you say to yourself, or awkwardly out loud, "Oh. I get it now." And that moment is a bit of a relief because I can finally surrender my hard search for what was within me all along. Doh.
And still I LOVE this because when the circle connects again and I return 'home' in my life I come back to myself with tons of experience, more wisdom, beautiful people, and belief in what's possible.
I've had a whirlwind of a year. Ever have those? But really, it's been a whirlwind of six years. You see, six years ago I turned down graduate school for the second time and decided to leave a blank path of possibility in my future. Good idea? I'm not sure.
School was my safety net. It was my path to career and worth. It was where someone else was going to tell me what I was meant to do and how. I turned it down because...my gut told me to.
Fast forward six years. I won't bore you with the details so here's a fun summary - there have been 5 business's, 3 not so successful, 2 incredibly successful, many blogs, many more blog posts, hundreds of books, and thousands of journal pages all in an attempt to answer these questions: Why am I here? What am I meant to do?
Have you ever asked these? Have you ever answered them?! If you have, tell me what you've discovered!
Well it's taken me 2,190 days to come up with this - I'm meant to listen and connect to people.
Were you expecting more? Me too, which is why it's taken me so long to trust my gut that this is simply who I am!
Now I'm hungry to just do the work. Yes, just do the work. Because it's so simple.
What are you hungry for? What is calling to you? What is asking more of you than you know how to be? Where are you ready to expand?
For me it's inviting motivated, driven, and visionary women entrepreneurs to work with me. Why? Because (and I think you'll agree with me):
- You're answering your calling
- You have a greater WHY than yourself
- You have a vision, mission, and message to impart in the world
- You are driven and inspired
- You want to achieve mastery and significance
I could keep going. It came down to this - you are going to show up, do the work, and get out of your own way. For this I thank you. The world needs you. You still have hope that making a difference is a viable way to spend your time and energy. Me too.
I recently read through this list: 100 Women in Wellness to Watch
As I read through I realized these women are on this list because they are DARING to BE, DO, and REACH something greater than themselves. Doesn't this inspire you? Maybe one of these women is you! Or will be. Or you want it to be.
"At any given moment, you have the power to say: This is not how the story is going to end."
- Christine Mason Miller
IF you do THEN I want to be the woman in your corner supporting you in making this possible. No one breaks barriers or re-writes her-story alone. It requires connection, conversation, validation, being challenged, accountability, inspiration, and good ol' fashioned love from someone who believes in YOU.
Don't spend six years as I did. Take a gut check. Then dive in. Because deciding to take the world by storm is Step 0. Step 1? Take action.
Trust your gut,
