When we engage in new vulnerable activities, like starting a blog, we often discover ourselves in new ways.
Quite a few people have been curious about how I am taking on so much right now in my life - mother and wife, pregnant, working full time, 3-4 side gigs, 2-4 volunteer programs, 2 continued education programs, and personal hobbies.
I honor my energy levels and the ebbs and flow of life. There have been several times in my life where the engagement was just as much or more as it is now. There have been other times in my life where I was single, working, and only having a social life (nothing "extra").
Right now, I feel alive. I am maintaining my inner peace, harmony at home, and enjoying the creativity flowing from inner core.
When a new connection reached out to me recently, they asked me "Where were you when I needed...?" My services and authentic conversation with this individual resonated. I wish I was there in the past for that person.
I want to share my response with you, but it is more of a I reminder to myself and affirmation that I am doing exactly what I should be doing right now.
"I was not sharing my essence digitally. I value authentic human connection and thought that I could only do that with real life connections. I am glad that I am boldly opening up to the virtual world now though."
