It’s been a long time coming. Countless years of resistance, denial, struggle and pain. All to admit this one simple truth. I am a writer. I’m a communicator to the very depths of my soul.
Why has this been so hard to say out loud to more than a handful of close connections? As long as I don’t admit it publicly, I don’t have to do anything about it. That’s the nature of fear. You see, being a ‘closet communicator’ has allowed me the luxury of sitting on the sidelines because I don’t have to get myself out there. I can journal from here to kingdom come, never publishing a bit of my work to the world. I have a tremendous amount of fear around being “seen” or identified with my own creations. To me, it feels like walking outside in the freezing cold with no clothes on. Eeeek! Scares me to death!
Sharing this secret forces me out into the open. I know logically that there is nothing to be afraid of, but I can’t shake the feeling that there is. That is why I’m telling you. I’m doing exactly the opposite of what my fear would have me do.
There, it’s out. My secret is no longer a secret. It’s out there in the light.
Here is some more inside information about me…I have written 2 books, not to completion, but close. I have also been journaling for the past 30 years. Often times I figure out how I’m feeling when I write…I also get answers. Answers to some really big life questions.
I have known for for most of my life that I have a lot to say, but I’ve let fear stop me from saying it. How will I get my message out? Who will read it? Will it have any value to anyone, will I be criticized if I go public with it, or worse… will it/I be rejected? I’ve answered my own questions…the answers are YES, NO, MAYBE and ALL OF THE ABOVE and now I don’t care.
In other words, I care so much about honoring my calling that I don’t care what the outcome is.
So here’s my promise to you…I’m going to continue to blog and I’m going to continue to speak from my heart. You are going to get honesty and transparency from me. I’m going to keep challenging my own fears and busting through my resistance because I love to be of service to others. I share what I learn. I could go on and on about the subject of fear and how to take it by the hand and learn to walk with it…and maybe I will, right here on these pages.
I’m curious about what resonates with you as well. I can write about what speaks to me all day long, but I’m more interested in what speaks to you.
Drop me a line using this contact link and let me know what you want to hear more about. I would LOVE to hear from you! If I use your idea in one of my blog posts, you will get $100 off my next Desire Map Workshop. Big stuff, for big hearts.
Speaking of workshops, I plan on doing many more of these this year. For those of you that are already signed up for my Desire Map Level I workshop, a Level II workshop will be available this summer. I’m also doing Desire Map Virtual Workshops, so if you’re interested in these, let me know and I'll make sure you get more info.
Thank you, thank you for being part of this journey with me. It means everything.
