And I’m still in awe of the amount of energy a new leaf can bring with it.
What It Means to Me
I have felt for awhile that something was off.
My work days had become a struggle. I was trying to build a successful blog as part of my livelihood and not doing a good job at it.
I realized I didn’t like it. I hated it, in fact. It was consuming me and not in a good way.
And that’s because I was looking outside myself for the how-to’s. And not that there’s anything wrong with that (wink wink to other Seinfeld fans), but what I wasn’t doing very well was taking what I learned “out there” and making sure it resonated with my insides before applying it.
Some of it I knew didn’t resonate so I didn’t do it.
Some of it did resonate somewhat so I tweaked it a little to fit.
But most of it I just blundered ahead and sort of half-assed did it without even taking the time to really consider if or how it fit with my own system at all. (Yes, I’m talking energy system. All-encompassing.)
As a result, my heart wasn’t really in it, and it turned into a big, icky, dreadful obligation.
I’m not doing that anymore. I’m going to break all the rules now.
It’s time to do it my way.
I’m going to do the stuff that “doesn’t work”, and I don’t care about the results. I really don’t.
I care that I feel really alive while I’m writing this. And that’s got to count for something, right? Besides that it feels *perfectly* on target for me, maybe you (or someone who’s yet to find this blog) resonate with what will express through me naturally, without all the rules and guidelines, the do’s and the don’t's … right?
What It Means to You
That means this blog is going to be way different.
1. Intuitively Guided
First, my main, #1 commitment to myself is to stay tuned in this year. No longer am I just going to do that when it’s convenient and use rationality otherwise. I’m going to check in with my heart, my gut, my inner wisdom, my intuition (all of those mean the same thing to me) with everything. Everything!
And mostly, I’m going to do it where my business and blog are concerned.
Whenever I do this, all kinds of exciting things start to happen!
So that’s the first thing.
2. The Magic of a Multi-Dimensional You
Second, because I’ve been doing that over my break, I’ve gotten more clear on how to define my passion in one short tagline.
I live a multi-dimensional life. Full spectrum, both poles, of multiple axes, and everything in-between.
I love living like this and besides being fun and fascinating, there are tons of advantages to it.
So that’s the topic you’ll hear about on this blog. What that means, how I do it, and of course, what it might mean to you.
3. Vibrantly Relevant
I’m also going to be writing more from my heart than from my head, which was not the case in the past.
This is how I LOVE to write.
You’ll see that it’s more stream of consciousness, more alive, more spontaneous, and — something tells me — more relevant to all of us. (That remains to be seen, but I’m forging ahead anyway. Because I have to, plain and simple.)
So, welcome to my new world. Our new world. I hope you’ll come visit often and participate with me.
I want to hear what you think, how you feel, and how you do this thing called life.
Starting with … Do you follow your heart when it contradicts your head? Do you have a good example? How did it turn out?
