Is it just me, Or maybe you too? When you begin to do a new thing, launch a new idea, or or dive more deeply into your passion, it becomes unnerving? It throws you off kilter. I don’t know about you, but…It throws me for a loop. It makes me question everything. It makes me doubt myself and my abilities. But I keep on showing up! The fact is those feelings aren’t going to matter as you continue to show up. So that’s what I’m doing. I. Am. Showing up. And maybe you need to do that too? So, let’s keep showing up together.
Find your people. Find the support you need. Get into community. Do not be afraid. As I’ve heard it said by Jon Acuff, “fear fears community”. And there is something powerful and empowering about that truth. About being with people as you go in your own process. You overcome your fears. You find yourself able to do things you never dreamed or imagined. All because you just kept showing up.
So call out life in yourself and in the work that you do. Call out life in the work you see others doing. It matters. It matters. It matters!!! Don’t believe me? Try it. And you’ll see just how much your perspective will shift and morph and change as you become all you and become all that you are meant to be. Let’s engage our uniqueness. Let’s engage our whole selves and live more whole heartedly. As my poet/writer story sister, Jamie Bonilla would say embrace your “youishness.” Nothing more and nothing less is required of you. This is just an invitation for you to be all you.
Yes you can!
Here’s all I can tell you for now, and I’m telling you because it’s my way of keeping myself accountable and working toward the finish line. I want to launch my own version of creative mixed media arts handmade or designed by myself and all that inspires me. That’s all I’ll tell you for now, but if you want to know more, follow my blog or sign up for my newsletter.
