I spend a ridiculous amount of time thinking about my business, how to reach people, new ways to connect with women, how to get them on Discovery Calls, how I can best serve them and where to meet them. So many thoughts swirling around my head at any given moment.
So it hit me like a ton of bricks when I had one very clear thought that stopped me in my tracks...
The way you connect with your audience is the one thing you keep putting off...writing.
Ok, intuition. You win!! Less time on Facebook, less time watching cat videos and stupid Vines on Instagram, (although you can still connect with me there), and more time writing.
But I want to know why. Why do I do this to myself? Why is it so hard for me to do the ONE thing that I know will help me connect with you guys, my readers? All of you have been so supportive, so understanding. The messages I get from you, both on here and privately, have been so heartwarming, oftentimes leaving me in tears, chills down my arms. It's the connection that I crave, but the connection is what I've been avoiding.
Gaaaah...my coach and friends are all shaking their heads. Connection is what I've been talking about for the last two weeks. But it's actually what I've been craving for the last two years, and when I'm honest about it, my whole life. One reason I got sober was because I was craving connecting with people on a deeper level. And now I'm putting off the one thing that makes me feel so connected and understood.
In coaching (and in life), we hear "find what works for you and run with that". Except I've been listening to what's been working for others, and trying it on for size. And it hasn't fit. At least not the way I like it to. I want loose, comfy, flowy, no shoes, messy hair, no makeup, beachy hair and probably pulled out from my bag because I wore it yesterday. That's me!! That's how I function these days. Comfort. Easy. Flowing.
So I will be letting the words flow. Out of my head and into cyberspace. Minimal editing. Not worried about how it's going to come off, who it will offend or touch or reach.
My therapy, my flow, my process.
