Hello and welcome! Again! I’m so sorry I’ve been away for so long!
Long story short, I got a full-time job. Yay me! A full-time job that’s NOT sitting in front of a computer! Heck yeah!!!
So that’s largely where I’ve been for the past 3 weeks. My business has gone by the wayside as I learn the culture, language, and idiosyncrasies of my current 40-hour a week endeavor.
“Oh, what is it?” you ask…
I’ll not give specifics, but it has something to do with autistic children.
Yeah, who knew?
Five years ago, I wouldn’t dream of having this job. Nope, not me. My friends laughed at me and thought it was scary that I wanted to work a seasonal job at Toys R Us.
But now I’m glad that I have a job where I can work one-on-one with children over a long period of time and see the change, see the difference that I’m making.
And, let me tell you, definite culture shock coming from a desk job!
I’ve been busy in other areas of my life, as well.
I’ve heard a knocking from the Universe that tells me I should start up my own women’s group. I’m a part of a healing circle group on Facebook, and I thought it would be a good idea to bring the same concept into my real-life. So I’m going to try to make more meaningful relationships with those in my community, and try to help encourage others to own their gifts and feel comfortable in their own skin and niche so that we can spiral our gifts outward and co-create the healing of the world.
Yeah, I’m sounding totally hippie-dippie right now, aren’t I?
Oh well, I don’t care.
I’ve been a part of a Wild Women program before through Melanie Munir and her Professional Wild Woman program. Though I couldn’t financially swing extending my participation in the program, I’m still reaping the benefits of being a part of such a vibrant community–and this is almost a full year later!
And I’m so excited to share my experiences with the world, that I got the idea to try to start one up myself.
In no way am I trying to do something that is the same as Melanie’s program. I don’t believe I could if I tried! I would encourage anyone who likes her stuff, who isn’t afraid to dive deep into their own shit and make it into fertilizer, to look into this beautiful life coach’s programs and workshops. (And, no, I’m not getting paid to say that, even if this blog post reached thousands of people, I’d give that advice for free!)
I’m trying to create a space for the women in my community to discover together, their gifts and their special, unique talents, and help co-create the healing of the world together.
But I believe in me. I believe in the few women who have already expressed an interest. I believe that the Universe has put this idea in my head for a reason, and all I have to do is SHOW UP, be HER-ed (that’s the title for the first meeting, btw…), and express myself, and give space for these women to do so, too.
So, I guess, that’s all I can do, is give space for these women to share their hopes and dreams and tender places that need healing, and share their gifts with the world, with the gentle reminder that we’re all human, here, and we will fuck it up on occasion, sometimes more than others.
…but, in a community of friends it’s alright, because your friends will forgive you and help you move on to bigger and better things through the fuck-ups, right?
Here’s hoping this group will help me develop more meaningful relationships. More safe harbors, more joy.
And who couldn’t do with more of those things?
