Thanks for stopping by as I take the plunge on this blog. I thought starting my own business was going to be hard, and to be honest never ever in a million years did I think I’d ever have my own business (More on that later!).
There is so much to do, and there are so many things to get in a row. It’s funny that I picked the name Small Steps (to go with my last name…as well as the way you become more authentic, more you, more awesome – by taking these small steps) because often friends use my own business name to get me to relax when I start to freak out.
I’ve been known to freak out occasionally, and then I laugh because I think ha, what a funny sense of humor God must have. Giving me this name idea when perhaps I am the one who needs to hear the message most. I like that. I like when the world gets all crazy and works out like that. It makes me remember how small I actually am.
So ladies and gentleman it’s official. I took another step towards my own happiness. Sometimes they feel like giant leaps even though they are not and sometimes I forget to breathe, like when I’m working out (does that happen to anyone else or just me?).
Deep breaths has been my motto for a little bit now. I’ve had to say this a lot more since having children, putting way too much on my plate, and taking risks. Deep breaths. Sometimes it works…other times I am screaming too loud or laughing too hard, but it still helps me get back in the moment.
My hope is this blog is a place where people come to take deep breaths, or to scream, or to laugh. God knows I’ll be doing all of that. So welcome. I’m happy to have you along for the ride. We will learn a lot together – I just know it. Maybe you’ll even get some insight into yourself! And maybe (if I’m lucky enough) one day I’ll offer a talk somewhere and you’ll show up and think, “man she’s so much cooler on the internet.” Or maybe you already know me and know I’m not that cool but love me not only despite that but because of it. Either way I love that you’re here. So come back, will ya?
