So I’ve been thinking a lot lately. And by a lot, I mean any minute I have to think (don’t get scared I don’t have that many minutes to think I have 2 kids under 3….stuff is wild over here.) But I’ve been thinking a lot when I do think about the idea of finding your voice.
So, when I started Small Steps I knew that it came from a place of great desire and I also knew that a lot of what I wanted to do was just not clear to me yet. I also felt like I was looking around, taking notes, and trying to decide what exactly it was I needed to be or “should be” and don’t get me wrong that was all true and honest but it wasn’t all totally me. Totally my voice.
So the more I’ve thought about it. The more I’ve worried about it. The more I’ve looked around. The more I’ve realized one thing the ONLY thing I have to offer that other people don’t, the thing that makes me uniquely me is my voice. This is a really important realization and in some ways I think it is what will take me from being someone that some people want to read and pay attention to to someone that A LOT of people want to read and pay attention to.
I’ve realized that my voice is truly all I’ve got that makes me stand out. On the surface I may be like a lot of other people, even my experiences may be similar. But my take, my thoughts, my way of expressing- that’s all me. So it may seem like a small step but I think it’s a giant leap. I’m going to find my voice, own my voice, and share it.
Hope that you enjoy 🙂
