Does it ever feel good to be back! I can’t even express how much I missed blogging. Yet, I found it a challenge to sit in front of my computer and write. I have been away from blogging for months longer than I originally intended, largely because I wanted everything to be absolutely perfect when I returned. And because, life. When you let it, life can easily get in the way. I wanted to apply everything that I learned in B-School; to learn more tech-y skills so I could dazzle y’all with a fancy new website and I wanted be able to implement a ton of new changes and ideas right away. I stressed about what I should write for my first post back and what day of the week I should publish. What would be my posting schedule and how was I going to make the time to fit in everything I want to do?
BUT! I remembered two very important lessons:
- Done is better than perfect.
- If you love something, don’t let anything - not fear, not perfectionism - stand in your way. Just do it.
So here I am, writing once more on my own little place in the internet and I couldn’t be happier. I have to say, I was incredibly touched by the number of people asking about my return. Honestly, I didn’t realize anyone beyond my Mom was reading. To be frank, part of my frustration, part of the reason I took a break, was because as much as I love my Momma, it got a little frustrating working so hard “just” to write for her. So thank you - for letting me know you are out there, that you enjoy and receive something from my words and that I was missed.
One of my greatest lessons, that I need to re-learn time and again, is that all things, but especially the greatest things, take time. There is a process and there is growth and much of the wonderment of life comes from enjoying this journey. So while I want to do many great things with this blog so I can be of greater and greater service to women in helping them lead extraordinary lives, I also realize that it’s ok if it takes 5 years to grow and I don’t need to have it all together right now. For now, I am going to do what I love - write and serve - and I am going to keep working on building this dream and hope that I am able to continue to help you in your journey.
Glad to be back and looking forward to spending some time together again.
