I take space, I make space

First, an experiment.

A person who shares freely would explain on her new website—this very thing!— that she is building a sharing platform to house a chronicle of her explorations and experiments. If it feels scary to put this stuff out there, she will try this experiment anyway because who knows what will happen?

She will, because she is also a conscientious person, keep the sharing safe. No trauma needed! She shares what feels right, while trying to stay close to that safe edge so she can learn.

So let it be said:

This is an experiment. I shall share my thoughts here. I hope to grow in them. I hope to connect with others through them. I will feel my way along as openly as possible, holding this in balance with my need to feel safe.

Second, a dedication.

A person who shares freely would keep a regular date with herself to work on the next piece, because she wants to keep sharing. She is a person who shares, and so she needs work to share. She works, she shares. She loves the work, she works for the work. Why not make it shareable?

She shares her questions and discoveries, areas where she is excited to learn more, observations. She does this so that others may also think upon their own answers or find their own pathways. She lacks, as all people do, perfect knowledge, but she shares anyway. She will fumble, as all people do whatever their means of expression, with tone and pace and voice and content. She will share anyway.

She is good at finding connections between things, and she is excited to share those connections! What a cool world! Most excellent.

So let it be said:

Expertise and learning go hand-in-hand. I will grow my new work here consistently and patiently, even in moments when I don’t feel like an expert. There is worth in sharing the journey and the process. This work is a practice.

Third, an offering.

A person who shares freely would offer her services, because she is excited to grow her offerings. She is, after all, a sharing person. The services are an embodiment of the learning work, and should be practiced and celebrated also.

So let it be said:

I can connect with you—you!—in a coaching capacity to discuss and process visions you have about living in a way that’s more fully in tune with your interior voices and more in tune with the human and non-human creatures around you. I support you and listen deeply to your ideas for growth and expansion that honor your integrity as a creature of the world.

Interested in making a change?

I'd love to hear from you.
