Honestly Speaking

Monday, October 29, 2012 12:35 PM

There's so much to be done.

I haven't been posting here lately because I've been spending most of my free time trying to take over the world.  Well, trying to take over my world.  I've been off making assessments and decisions.  Okay, mostly assessments.  About what steps I should be focusing on right now to bring about the changes I want.

In order for me to achieve great things - accomplishments that are aligned with my gifts
and passions - I will have to ease up on some other things.

I think this scares me because, quite frankly, I want attention.   I don't want to disappear for a year or however long and lose whatever connections I have made.  But I realize that this is a fearful way of thinking.  I've become so spoiled by the immediate gratifciation of blogging and social media.  I am still learning to be my own cheerleader - especially when I feel untalented and uncertain about what I have to offer.

I have to trust my process and allow myself to trial, to error and to ultimately grow into my purpose. 

Maybe the small things are really just a cover up - a reason to delay the big things. Everyday I marvel at the denial games I play with myself.  Anyway, so what is my point really?

By the end of this year, I will no longer be updating this blog.  I'm not going to disappear off the face of the earth.  I'll still be on twitter, pinterest and tumblr.  (Have you checked out my tumblr?  I'm kind of obsessed with it right now.)  And, Kimmie and I are completely revamping Peace Love and Pretty Things.  Don't tell her that I told you.

If you're not signed up to receive my posts by email, please do so.  This way I'll have you on my email list and maybe I'll send you lovely emails reminding you that you're awesome and irreplaceable and deserving of all good things.  I like emails like that, don't you?  Or, maybe I'll reach out to ask you for advice or feedback for something I'm working on.  You wouldn't mind that, right?

 As 2012 is rapidly coming to a close, what are the biggest things on your mind?   Are you contemplating change like I am?
