A Confession, Some Exciting News & A Favor to Ask
Spring has officially sprung and we made it through to the end of daylight savings time, which in my book, is something glorious to celebrate. Can I get an amen from any of you seasonally affected friends out there?
Spring is typically a time symbolizing new beginnings. We dial into more regular fitness routines, we edit our wardrobes, and we clean the dusty baseboards of our lives in order to create a bit of fresh forward momentum. It’s exciting, right?
In my experience, it can also be a time to bite off too much. A rush of energy kicks in and I feel like I can take on the world, so I over-commit and find myself sitting cross-legged and frustrated on the floor of my office wondering how I got there.
Do you ever feel this way?
I did this last spring as I kicked off my podcast. I freaking LOVE podcasts and find myself looking for any opportunity to be alone in the car or in between clients at work so I can listen to one of the hundreds I subscribe to. If I didn’t text you back, it’s not because I didn’t want to.
I probably was just in a podcast haze starting at the ceiling. Sorry about that.
Well, I lined up some incredible first guests (Ian Cron, Matthew Perryman Jones, and Miles Adcox to name a few), got into the work, and after airing three episodes, quickly discovered I was in over my head. My "Operation: Podcast" had failed.
Or had it?
I always try to see failures as opportunities. Where was the opportunity here? The opportunity was to get crystal clear on my vision. I learned something highly important: without vision, action is only haphazard at best.
I’ve spent the last several months crystalizing a vision for the community I want us to build, and the exciting news is, along with the podcast, I’m bringing you some opportunities to connect to this lovely healing arts community by hosting some cool upcoming events starting in April! Whoop!
You will be hearing more on that in the near future. However, I wanted to plant the seed as well as ask a favor.
You hear from me a LOT. Yet you are the heartbeat of why I do what I do. That said, I really need to hear from you to continue to build out this vision. Would you pretty please take five minutes and fill out this survey? There are seven questions that will seriously help me direct the next steps of the blog, events, the podcast, and more!
Thank you, seriously. Time is precious, and I value yours (as well as your feedback!). I can’t wait to hear what you have to say.
Love & Gratitude,
