YAY!!! I'm finally writing a blog!!!
This has been a long time coming. Like, years and years. I feel like I am finally to a point in my life where I can make things happen. I mean REALLY happen. I have had so many stops and starts, I lost count. So, why now? What has brought this to fruition, finally?? So many things have led me to this place and I am grateful for all of them; countless clients, encouraging friends and family, lots of inspirational quotes, podcasts and the final piece, the podcast I watched last night. It was Lewis Howes podcast and he had Amanda Cerny on. I had no idea who she was, even thought she has millions of followers on social media. As my son would say, "do you live in a hole??" yeah, maybe. But that aside, I was super impressed with the amount of things this woman does. Pretty much of super hero proportions. For the first time, hearing that, I wasn't beating myself up that I hadn't done anything consistent yet (as far as content, Social, etc), I was just inspired by her tenacity and ability to get it done. And then she said something that hit. "Be unapologetically you" Hmmm. I had heard that before, but I was in a place where it REALLY landed. I started thinking about everything I had tried to create before and how I always stopped in my tracks, worrying about how this person or that person would take it. I never just let ME flow OUT. So much energy was spent on the right way to write something or present something that I lost who I was. My unique take on the message I had to share was lost too. It left me frustrated and unproductive. So this morning, I built this site. My goal was to just get something up and to be UNAPOLOGETICALLY myself while doing it. And you know what? I LOVE IT. It feels right. It feels true and it feels POWERFUL. This summer, I paid someone, a good friend with amazing skills to build me a website. I literally could not get it together. All he needed was content but everything that my little fingers typed felt contrived. After working on it for weeks, I walked away from it. It wasn't the time and I had to honor that in myself.
But today? Today is a different story. Today I am clear on what I need to do and how I need to do it. Will I be straightforward and candid about what I know and how I can help people? Yep! Will I cuss sometimes in my posts? I might if the mood strikes me. Sorry not sorry. Will I relay some amazing content that has been in my brain FOREVER that I didn't have the courage to put out because it was different from everyone else's? You bet your britches, I will. That's why it is helpful and why it is powerful too. And will I circle back around and revamp my website with my friend who I already paid? Guaranteed. But right now, I am creating a way to express all the amazing gifts I have been given to share with the world and I AM DOING IT!! So, thanks, Amanda Cerny in your infinite wisdom from a woman that is rocking the world.
What about you?? Are you feeling paralyzed, unable to be or share your authentic self?
