Did I Really Just Do That?
Have you ever had the experience where if you knew how much work it was going to be from the beginning you might not have done it at all?
Well, I had NO DANG IDEA this was going to be so much work and take so long 😲. There was a point where I was too far down the road to turn back, but I was buried and worried.
Did I make a mistake? Will I be able to pull this off? Will anyone even want what I’m creating?
Trust was a dicey word for a while.
But I have to say, all the extra time and work created a program that is 1,000 times better and more beautiful than I had imagined it would be.
I am so proud of what we have created. And I must say WE! There have been teams of people who have worked on this with me. The film crew, the editors, the branding, the website developers and my food assistants, and I can’t even begin to talk about my husband.
We would need a couple of hours and a HUGE cup of tea!
Wow! What an incredible journey we have just been on.
I am so excited to take this next big step and share this with you. To meet you. To learn from you.
I was reading one of my mentors, Jay Fields, recently and she talked about something a mentor of hers told her. (Don’t you just love how storytelling works!)
Here is the part that hit me straight to my bones:
“I once had a mentor tell me that to put an offering into the world primarily because you think the world needs it is an arrogant thing. Who am I to say what the world needs? Instead, put an offering out into the world because you need it, and because you can’t not do it and feel right in your skin in this world. If other people happen to get something from it, great. But all you have control over is how you meet yourself and let yourself shine (or not) as you in the world.”
This summed up how I have been feeling these last 2+ years perfectly. Even while I was worrying if anyone will want it I also couldn’t NOT do it. It felt bigger than me. I felt like I was being led. Every step of the way.
Someday when I write a book (Ha!) I will go into detail about how at every turn the perfect person showed up. It was/is a little spooky/awesome 😍
So with deep deep humble gratitude, I say THANK YOU!
