I got to visit with a dear friend today who has built a beautiful nonprofit that serves mothers in the incredibly challenging season of motherhood.
Whether she knows it not, I admire her so much for the culture of love and encouragement she has built. I constantly remind myself of her journey. Looking at the massive success she has now and the countless number of lives she is impacting, I can remember when she started her nonprofit in her garage.
So, when I look at my projects and the, at times, scattered ideas of what I want to do, I come back to this little email list and remind myself that this is my beginning. This is my version of Karen's garage.
This is the start of something amazing, I just don't know exactly what it is yet.
But, I did my first ever Instagram Live yesterday sharing my journey with depression and anxiety. It was massively successful in my opinion simply because I DID IT.
I scheduled it. I made it happen and I got to share some truth with some awesome folks. I keep saying I want to be public speaker, so I need all the practice I can get.
Here is my takeaway from that:
My opportunities for growth are as follows:
I got some beautiful feedback from the people that were there live and then today, I received this comment from a random person on the post on YouTube:
"Hey, I just stumbled upon this video... I want to start by thanking you for being so real and vulnerable. You have something beautiful inside of you. I hope you're okay right now. You're an extremely special human being. An awesome one too."
If you made it to the live, I just want to say thank you so much.
If you missed it and want to watch it, you can grab it here. Please feel free to send it to a friend! It is long, but it is chocked full of goodies and encouragement!
Anyway, this email feels a little fumbly. It didn't flow the way the first four did. But I think that's a part of this #30daysofemails thing.
I'm just committed to writing everyday, what comes out is less of my concern.
Thank you so much for being here.
