Okay, so my new thing is intention. Real live freaking intention. And my intention today, and every day, is to BE ME and ask others to dare with me and BE THEM. I’ve been thinking a lot (as I mention on here time and again 🙂 ) and as I think more and more about my blog, and my brand, and my ideal client and my “hot hook.” I start becoming insane and the worst version of myself because then I’m getting all crazy and thinking #RJAF78a9&IVJ (that’s internet speak for my brain just exploded and i pulled my hair out-the end.)
Anyway, back to what I’m thinking about- I start thinking ahhhhhhh there are so many people out there- so many experts, so many awesomely amazing totally rad people that are doing what I want to do ALREADY!!!!!!!! Like this fabulous lady (LOVE HER), or this lady (the first blogger I ever read!!!), or this blogger (who I basically wish I could ever be as cool as!) And then I’m like oh no, oh no, oh no, and the crazy insane part of me that lives in this sick bad place in my head filled with this terrible idea that the pie is only so big and eventually it will be gone and there may not be a piece for me!??!?! (I think that’s the youngest in me…that fear that there is not enough….siblings-did you used to steal my food?!)
Well, little crazy terrible voice inside my head and you my lovely readers on the inter web -I’m here to tell you that is BS. STRAIGHT UP BS. ALL DAY LONG.
There is enough. THERE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH.
ABUNDANCE. PEOPLE. THERE IS ABUNDANCE.
How do I know you ask? Well here’s I know because those three amazing ladies I mentioned before Glennon from Momastery, Heather from Dooce, and Joanna from Cup of Jo. Those are ONLY 3 of the wildly awesome, totally great, really fun to read ladies on the internet and in print. Heck yea “Carry On Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life.” by Glennon Doyle. Go buy your copy, now!!!! (PS: Maybe I should just quit my day job and become Glennon’s publicist because I’m obsessed, not in a creepy bad way, but in a wait a minute see this lady, she GETS IT!)
So that’s it. I’m going out and I’m getting my piece of the pie. No, no, no. I’m getting the whole pie. Heck I may get a couple pies or maybe hundreds or thousands of pies- and share them with everyone I love and strangers and hungry people and especially those people who feel like there’s not enough, because there is!!!! DAMN IT. Only catch- I don’t love pie. But that’s fine because guess what going with the abundance theme-there are SO MANY KINDS OF DESSERT! Amen to that 🙂
So let’s think of chocolate chip cookies- warm,made my husband, with milk. Now we are talking! Oh and even this delicious picture is from an awesome blog! You should make those and send me some 🙂 They’re even gluten free.
I’m grown up in some ways. In some ways I will never be grown up. But I want to be ME and I want to be me so that others can be them and be happy and free and proud and eat pie or cookies or whatever is their pleasure (as long as they’re being kind and ethical and sharing) and not be afraid. Too much fear around here with far too many reasons to be happy.
I’ve got this and so do you. I’ve got a good feeling.
