28.09.15I am fine

I wonder lovely, how are you?

How are you really doing?

When someone asks you this questions, how do you respond?

How often are you being honest about how you feel?

Do you pretend to feel better than you actually are?

Or do you play it down because you don’t want to come across as a high-on-life-hippie?

How often is your default answer: I am fine?

Do you ever want to get away from it all, even just for a moment?  To be alone with yourself and your thoughts and feelings. To escape but not really escape, and carve out a little ‘me-time’. continue reading

If you read last week’s post you might remember that one of my main drivers to re-write some of my pages was the lack of authenticity. They were no longer serving me and in much need of a change.

It made me realise how much I have changed over the past year and a half or so. The words on my About Me page once reflected who I was at that point in time. However they no longer rang true. My Work with Me page is up there, but it doesn’t really say much. You can almost say it’s non-existing. I simply didn’t know how to capture what I am offering my clients and I just left it. It felt empty in a way because the authenticity was missing and I couldn’t find the words.

I wanted to be able to express me, in all it’s glory.  And this is where it got scary. Because to be authentic and show yourself, you actually need to show up you see…

I’m always very good at talking about this with my clients but when it comes to lil’ old me I apply different rules.

You could say this is kind of hypocritical, and I should practice what I preach. I agree. And if you know me, you also know I am not a hypocrite. The thing is though, showing your full self is plain scary.

11.08.15Finding my voice – part l

You know this feeling of when you have something to say but you don’t know how to say it? You can’t find the right words or the words don’t come out properly. You find it hard to capture the essence of your message. You think about it so much that you’ve lost your trail of thoughts and what you were trying to say in the first place.

What if people think I’m stupid?

What if people think I’m silly? 

What if my message doesn’t resonate?

What if I don’t know what I’m talking about?

What if, what if…

And

I don’t write as well as others out there 

They know how to always say things better than me

Why would I even bother? 

There is so much stuff out there, it will just get lost in space.

Why would anyone be interested in what I have to say? No one will ever visit my site.

This is how I felt for quite some time. I felt I have so much to say but with all these thoughts floating around in my mind I didn’t seem able to tap into that sweet energy.  continue reading

blog hearted

You’re thinking…

I want to write.

I want to express.

I want to create.

I want to connect.

I want to share.

I want to make a difference.

I want to be heard.

I want to be part of something bigger.

I know. I have been there. I tried going at it alone but I needed support. Craved support. I needed feedback. I needed to be held accountable. I needed to know that I wasn’t the only one struggling. Collective fears. Collective doubts. Collective passions. Love. I needed to express my love for the work and words of others and be loved in return. continue reading
