Y’ever get ahead of yourself, and make things so much more complicated than they have to be? HAHAHA story of my life! This week has been a whirlwind of that for me. Pffft this week. HA! Try four decades.
People have been telling me to be more personal and open on my blog. I’ve resisted that. For a few reasons, but one is that I want to empower others, and only want to post the positive side of life. I sooo want people to feel good, and be encouraged when they come here. I want this to be a warm fuzzy blanket, a soft smooshy pillow, and a sparkly, wonderful boost of positive, scrumptiously happy energy. I want to motivate and cheer people on. Like a cheerleader in your corner! WOOT!
I also, however, want to already be a realllly good blogger. A realllly good writer. A professional at these endeavors that seem to be running fast on the rollercoaster without me, sometimes.
I’m excited that since I started this journey last year, this wonderful-scary-exciting “calling” of mine has transitioned and evolved into so much more. It began with the dream of writing my book, which is still in process. I attended a FABULOUS and informative Writers Workshop. I met some great people and made some new friends. I wrote a story for hopeful inclusion in my favorite author of all time’s upcoming book! With the help of my friends, I’ve started a blog. I’ve been asked to be a guest blogger on a website owned by someone I admire. I’m looking into expanding my own blog to incorporate three very different topics. Misfits that, for me, actually fit together seamlessly: Empowerment, health, and stuff I like & want to share with the world. I feel empowerment coaching and who knows what else for the future. The roller coaster is rolling, the “calling” is pulling me, and I’m just along for the ride.
I am not an expert. Of anything. I’m just learning things I should have learned 20 years ago. I’m stretching my comfort zone. I’m learning more about myself and life every day. I want to share everything I’ve learned, and am learning, with others, so that we can all live our very best, authentic, happy lives. I’m networking with people and enjoying giving and receiving support.
This whole thing seems to be happening so fast that I feel like Stretch Armstrong (ok 80’s kids, you remember!) being pulled out of the old and into the new. I see with clarity that if you truly sit in stillness, focus on your breath, and ask “What is my calling?” You will get the answer. WHOA will you ever get the answer! Just be prepared, it may not be anything you thought it might be! Take it from a usually very shy introvert… you just may get plunged into something wayyyyy outside your comfort zone! Guess what? That’s ok.
