Some writers hit a plateau in their writing, it's me, I'm that writer. It's not that I haven't wanted to write, I've sat down many times with my keys on the board but nothing comes out. It's strange because I have learned so much over the past few months that I feel I have so much to share, but at the same time I'm so protective of what I share. I've always been open, I'm not one to shy away from taboo subjects but lately, I've been so focused on self care that I can't just put words on the paper.
It's blocked, my writing ability is blocked. By what? I don't know. I've pulled inwards so much and focused on me and where I am going that I don't feel like I have any words of wisdom to share. At the same time, I feel overwhelmed with what I have learned and want to share but I seem to have built a protective wall. Maybe it's what I need, to shield myself while I continue this journey of self-care and self-discovery. Maybe I'm not quite there, maybe I'm not quite ready to share everything I have learned.
In part, that is something I learned, listen to what you need. Listen to what your mind, body and soul need. Right now I am in the nourish phase, I'm building my foundation. I am piecing together my future little by little. I am exploring my career and how to get my own business up and running. I know what I want to do, it's been a while since I felt that way but I believe all I've gone through has led me to a position in being a healer and helper. I want to own a business that helps people and brings awareness to tough topics. I want to help people have those uncomfortable but empowering conversations. I want to make a difference, I want to do good. It's the empath in me, which I have learned so much about and it all makes so much more sense now that I understand being an empath better.
I have laid the foundation for my future and I'm taking the steps I need to get there. I am manifesting what my heart is telling me to do. It's scary, uncharted territory is always nerve wracking but if you give yourself the chance, you may be surprised by what you can achieve. Why not give it a go? You can always fall back on the normalcy of life if your dream does not succeed as much as you want it to. But give yourself credit for trying, for attempting to take the risk. Redefine what success and failure means to you. Anytime you take a chance at a dream, you haven't failed. It may not be as successful or go as far as you had hoped but you took a chance and you did it for you, that within itself is success.
So while I may not have the courage or energy to write (maybe it's because I've been journaling so much and looking inwards to some very private matters that I have no thought left at the beginning or end of any day) I do know that I am redefining success and giving myself a chance. I'm going to believe in myself and what I am feel I am being called to do. So, here I go at this whole owning a legit business thing, stay tuned for details!
