Recently I was at Believe Inspire Grow @BIG4Women Embrace Your Drive To Thrive Summit. Lu Ann Cahn inspired us with her I Dare Me: One Year of Firsts movement. She asked us one question: What is one thing you have never done before and you commit to doing it and by when? In my true fashion of doing things, I raised my hand and committed to starting my blog by the 17th (Yes! Today!). I had to stand up and announce it in front of 150 amazing women to keep myself accountable.
Now, mind you I have resisted writing a blog and did not realize that was what I had to do until she asked that question. ( I also resisted tweeting and have only started not even two weeks ago and I am a fan!-So I am malleable!)
I was fortunate to have been baptized by Whitney Johnson when she asked me to guest blog on her Dare to Dream blog. Now I am fully immersing myself to committing to my own blog!
Why the resistance? Well at first I thought it was because of the little voice saying: do you really have anything worthwhile or clever to say? Are you really adding to the conversation? That wasn’t it. Writing a blog reminds me of all those long hours when I would lock myself up in the practice room and get ready for my piano concerts. I really hated doing that! I hated being in there alone. When I started working on my collaborative pianist degree I was in heaven…get me in a room with other musicians and I could practice for hours without realizing the time. I got energy from their interpretation and the back and forth music conversations.
So I am now in my practice room alone. I do not have others to feed off of or to get energy. I do have faces I see that I am speaking to. Those faces turn into light and energy in front of me. So why am I doing it? Because I am feeling that strong pull of needing to dump what is in my head somewhere!
So here I start another first for me….blogging. Thanks Lu Ann Cahn!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
