English is not my primary language. I am not a natural writer. Until a few months ago, I dreaded writing blogs and was not writing consistently, even though I swore over and over that I would.
Fast forward: Today I write consistently and post a new blog every Sunday. I love writing. In fact, when Wednesday morning comes (which is my sacred time of writing), I dance my happy dance and can’t wait to start.
So, what changed? Two things:
- A light went on.
- I met Jeffrey Davis.
The moment the light went on for me, it became clear…
It was time to stand up for what I believe in. Time to create the next evolution of my work with women to help them live at full power—in a way that I had never done before.
Vulnerability was my middle name. I coached women through it. I read about it. I had sticky notes with the word “Vulnerability” posted all over my house. I brought a lot of vulnerability to my conversations with women. It was time to bring it into my writing.
Can I really ask you, beloved, to make yourself vulnerable when I’m not being vulnerable in my writing?
How can I suggest that you become bolder and more transparent when I’m not?
So…I made it my goal to step outside my comfort zone and change my writing style.
I made a commitment to write more from my heart and tell you what’s REALLY going on in my life.
I made a commitment to invite you into my real world. To share my high and my low points…and the truth about my personal life and growth process.
I’m living outside my comfort zone now, and my writing reflects that!
Meeting Jeffrey Davis
Around the time I made the decision to become bolder in my writing, my friend Lisa introduced me to Jeffrey Davis. Jeffrey, a phenomenal writer, is the founder of the Tracking Wonder, a community of entrepreneurs who are committed to doing business as a creative process for the greater good—people Jeffrey calls business artists.
Jeffrey taught me to explore and wonder, to design a creative process that will make writing super enjoyable, and, last but not least, to help me get clear with my real message and the things I stand for. It’s not that I didn’t know before that I was meant to help women heal and transform. I knew from a very early age that this was my mission. Working with Jeffrey allowed me to design a creative process that is deep, inspiring, and empowering. The evolution of my brand name, the redesigned message, the new titles for the principles that I have been teaching for many years—these elements of my business all emerged from within me. Jeffrey’s creativity, talent, and skills have supported me through the process of realizing them.
My point is…
Making ourselves bolder and more vulnerable is our sacred responsibility.
You and I. Together. We are being stretched and called to expand.
I’m going to shine the spotlight on a few of my most vulnerable posts, hoping to inspire you to become bolder and more vulnerable in your own unique way.
In this blog post about creating a turning point, I share about the exact moment during my mother’s funeral that changed my life and led me from my own path to early death to a life of shining brightly.
Many of our women loved reading about the other side of me (the one that can be mean and nasty!) and what a fight with my husband taught me about loving yourself even when you hate yourself.
Being bolder and more vulnerable requires devotion and dedication to constantly challenging ourselves. The anxiety I felt before teaching a class—even after 20 years of doing it!—triggered this piece about the truth about stepping out of your comfort zone.
For those of you who are becoming empty nesters or dealing with other life changes, read about how I used my empty nest crisis as an opportunity…and think about what spiritual lessons you want your own transitions to teach you.
I’m on a mission to embolden women to create turning points and to become free, light, and fulfilled. I write from my heart. I make myself vulnerable and honest.
I write for you.
Every week, I shine the light on new tips and share resources, strategies, and tools for living at full power.
