In my 9 years in business, I’ve never been so quiet. I’ve never gone weeks without writing and sending out that writing. I’ve never listened so closely while saying so little.
But, I’ve been quiet.
Not because I don’t care.
Not because I’m disconnected.
Not because anything is wrong.
Because I’ve been busy being here, wondering, feeling, listening, learning.
I’ve been creating space for myself, for my team, for my dreams. I’ve been feeling all the things that want to be birthed, and listening to hear when it’s their time, and mine. I’ve been basking in the wide open space of curiosity.
And the conventional business wisdom would say “Don’t stop talking; You’ll become irrelevant.”
I choose not to buy into that scarcity thinking. Instead, I choose space.
Becaue I don’t write if I don’t have something to say that’s relevant.
And I don’t always have something to say.
Sometimes I’m busy being here, wondering, feeling, listening, learning.
Because loving me and loving you are not all that different.
Because taking care of me and taking care of you are almost the same.
So I took space.
Because I care.
Because it’s important to me that we’re connected.
Because it felt right.
Thank you for being here.
I’m back, and I’m so excited to share the exciting things that have been seeded and are growing, just as soon as they’re ready for the light of the sun.
