“Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”
(*side note: I realize the date below is wrong, but the post was written prior to running into a few ‘hiccups’ before we could launch)
Today (March 31, 2108) that quote takes on a brand new meaning – at least for me.
It’s the beginning of a journey I’ve wanted to take for a very long time but because of – Fear and Self-Doubt – I have started, stopped and now I am starting again…this time there is no Plan B.
You see, I’m a perfectionist at heart – it’s something I’ve struggled with all my life – so I over analyze – everything!
But my business coach recently issued a challenge – If not now – When?
So what’s this “thing” I’ve been procrastinating about starting for the last 2 (or 3) years? 🙁
It’s blogging —– Yes, “This”
So – here goes – NO more ‘what if’s’ – No more giving into the fear that’s held me back for the last few years….
I’m standing here – Today — on the edge of this “blogging cliff” and I’m going to JUMP!
And, hopefully when I land I will still be standing.
Why is this important to me?
Why have I decided to just ‘push through’ my fears and do it anyway?
Because every day I work with women who are struggling – They LONG for a home that is warm and inviting yet can’t quite figure out how to get there.
There are a LOT of blogs out there that talk about decorating and organizing the home… and they’re awesome…In fact, I subscribe to several of them and I’m always inspired by the posts and newsletters but despite all the information that’s available…for a lot of women, the struggle continues.
What I long to create isn’t ‘just another blog’ but a platform where women from all backgrounds and of all ages can come together and get the help they need.
I will be inviting conversation, accountability, and sharing.
And, who am I to think I can offer something you can’t get from the many blogs that already exist?
Well, you could say it’s because I’ve had ‘boots on the ground’ for over 20 years working as a Professional Organizer and Interior Designer and that I’ve been in the trenches getting my hands’ dirty longer than some bloggers have been alive …but honestly that’s not it at all…because the truth is…I learn something from these ‘newbie’s’ every time I read one of their posts.
They have a fresh set of eyes, and they have had access to organizational tools that were only dreams when I started my business.
But there’s no ‘One Place’ to get this information – which causes you get overwhelmed – then procrastination sets in and you stay ‘stuck’ – in your clutter and indecision.
That’s why I want to create a platform where ALL of this info can be easily shared because let’s face it…we’re all busy and if there was ONE PLACE where you could come and get all your questions and concerns answered without having to go to 20 different site – You would like that – Right??
I think God gives each of us a ‘unique VOICE’ and He calls all of us to use our ‘voice’ in a different way. I feel He is calling me to use mine to Inspire, Motivate and Encourage Women to use their homes to make a difference in the lives of everyone within “their” sphere of influence.
I know my website’s still not perfect… I have more technical questions than you can imagine…You will probably find spelling and grammar errors inside this post…(and when you do, feel free to shoot me an email and let me know what they are so I can correct them) Hugs in advance!
Let’s get started – and TOGETHER we will face our fears!
