In my last post, I mentioned that I felt big change was coming. Oh man.
I’m currently in Los Angeles, having resigned from my job and moved from DC two weeks ago (what a transition!!!!!). I’m moving to New York in the fall. I’m getting married in August/September. I’ve been writing regularly for really great sites, “Peaceful Dumpling” and “Grown Up Truth“, about things that invigorate me. I’m reinventing myself.
My reinvention (or, rather the pre-cursor to it) is, in part, what held me back from posting more frequently the past year. I knew vaguely where I wanted to head, I just didn’t know how I was going to do it or how I wanted to present myself in the interim. I stayed away from all social media, entirely, for a while for that reason.
There was also a pesky fear of judgement that melted away late last year (or, at least, a giant chunk of it – enough for me to start writing, again). That was pretty great. 🙂
I’ve dived back in now and I keep thinking, as I write for other sites – what do I want this site to be? I don’t quite know, yet.
I know that I want it to reflect all of who I am, the crude and the light. I want it to be transparent and authentic. I want to write “poop” as much as I write “spiritual”. I want to open up about my growth, my challenges, my frustrations, my triumphs.
To what end? I’m working on that, too. I know I want this site to be a vehicle for my authenticity, for my creativity and passion, and for my reinvention.
I’ve always known I wanted this site to be a vehicle for my diving into the world of personal development. It still is… but it’s becoming so much more, too.
This year is going to be amazing.
Reinvention in progress.
