Good afternoon, Sunshines!
Wow. It's been two weeks since my last blog post and almost a month since I shared with you that I'm taking a new direction with my work. They say that once you truly set your mind to a thing, the Universe conspires to make it happen. I know that sounds like metaphysical hooey to some, but in my experience, it has mostly been true.
Even as I fully expected some drop off of readership and support due to the change in direction, there has actually been continued growth and greater engagement than ever. And though I have never been concerned with growing the numbers just for numbers' sake, I choose to believe that so much positive energy is an affirmation of a right decision.
I feel happier, freer, and truer in what I'm doing. I don't have a title for it, and there is no career jargon to describe it. I'm just trying to live the best, fullest, and most authentic life I can on my own quirky terms, share my journey, pull people more together than apart through conversation, and make my little corner of the world better for it in some small way every day.
It's ever a work in progress - planting this and that, seeing what grows best and most organically, trimming, pruning, refining, and sometimes pulling things altogether. Whatever works as long as there's always some good growth...
Today brought me no big ideas on how to do this any better, but in the quiet meditation of tending the garden, watching Umizoomi with Izz, and doing four loads of laundry, I was overcome with a sense of wonder and gratitude that I get to do this at all. How lucky we all are that we have the power to reach out, connect, and share, instantaneously even, at our fingertips.
So much thanks - to the Universe for conspiring with me, to y'all for sticking with me, and to Science and Technology because, hello, INTERNET.
