I have built a business around connections. Relationships. Feelings. And I want my blog to be the same.
It stems back to my desire to be a connector. To have real conversations, share what’s worked in my journey, and hopefully touch something in you that makes you say, “Hey, me too!” The best feeling is knowing that we aren’t alone.
Did you know that I’m an only child? Most people say their sibling is their best friend. I didn’t have that automatic connection; I had to make it myself. The family that I chose is fiercely protected because it took work to let them in, tear down walls, and build bonds that are unshakable.
So if you’re here, you probably feel the same way. You’re looking for a connection, a community. Stories that you can relate to, stories that make you say, “I know what you’re feeling because I feel that way, too.” There’s strength in community. More often than not, the struggle we have is internal so it’s harder to find comfort, but there’s reassurance in knowing you aren’t in this alone.
As a friend and coach likes to say: we all need a mirror to reflect our best qualities back at us. The people we surround ourselves with are those mirrors. When we look at them, we see the best about us.
I want to give you that mirror and build a community that reflects radiance back so you have a place to come to that feels encouraging, expansive, playful, and relatable. I’ve built what I needed and it might be just what you need to.
And what I needed to hear is that we’re all doing the best we can with what we have right now. Just because you aren’t making a big change doesn’t mean you aren’t doing great soul-finding work. Little steps need to be celebrated, too.
I don’t know about you, but I constantly see people who are saying, “Take the leap, make a big change, move at the drop of a hat, explore the world!!”
Success doesn’t have to be that life changing big thing. It can be one small step that brings you closer to who you really want to be. Maybe it’s going out to a bar and bringing a book instead of a friend. Maybe it’s going to a restaurant to eat without any of your armor (books, magazines, laptops) to shield you. Maybe it’s asking your new neighbor to attend an event with you.
Whatever your story looks like, I want to celebrate it with you. I want to encourage you to grow where you’re planted and know that you can cultivate a beautiful life that you want to live. I’ll be here doing the same thing, growing right there along with you.
I’d love to hear how you’re growing and celebrate your wins, hell even commiserate a hard day. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or look me up on Twitter (@GardeningInHH) or Instagram (@GardeningInHighHeels). That’s where I hang out the most.
