Did I ever mention how much I adore this community? Yesterday, the response to my talking stories was overwhelmingly amazing!! It reaffirmed the importance of community and having a support system - support of people who believe in you and are on the journey together with you matters a lot. Some time ago I had a chance to connect with a lovely human that I came across on this very platform and we talked about how lonely it can be. One reason would be that we don't have any role models in our real lives or the other very obvious reason is that there is no blueprint, no 'right' way of doing things. It is a lot about trusting yourself and the journey and trusting that you've what it takes, trusting that you'll figure it out as you go and that can sometimes be scary and lonely.
I have celebrated the two year anniversary of my blog this August. While reflecting my journey so far one thing that sticks out for me is having some kind of support system. I have craved that support while I was struggling to figure out how everything works these past two years. I still don't 'feel' like I have figured it all out. But I honestly don't think anyone has. We are all learning what opportunities the internet holds for us and our creative work and what that means for the way we want to spend our lives. I crave some support now at times when I need reminding of what my work is capable of and what good is it already doing int he world. Support to cheer me on, help me challenge my existing patterns, disrupt and dismantle the way I'm seeing the world and grow along the way.
I have invested a fair share of money online on e-courses, workshops and other things online that I felt like I needed. I have invested in a coach that helps me listen to my voice and reduce the outside noise. Where I'm still finding a gap is having a close knit community that is willing to learn and grow along with me. I don't claim to be an expert coach 'coach' and I don't assume to know what's better for you but I can help create opportunities for your growth along with me. I can hold space for your ideas to come to life in a collaborative manner...Continued in the comments below 👇
