And so it begins – the birth of a blog…

And so it begins – the birth of a blog…

I started this blog last year with a clear intention to share my experiences and reflections and give voice to my shifting perspectives…

Conception…

Since then I have been jotting down ideas, thoughts, reflections, observations and aha!s on pieces of paper and putting them in a box…

Preparing for the birth…

I quietly announced the pregnancy to a few people and prepared the nursery… and then began the process of moving through the ups and down’s of each phase of this birthing process… It has felt very private… not yet ready to be spoken about… I have felt almost secretive about the process like it could not be shared… My time to enjoy the budding of this next chapter in my life…

Even before the pregnant pause I reflected on my intentions and fears… a new parent in an unknown world… so I took a course on how to write a blog and since then have been moving through a process of balancing the heart of what I want to say with the language of blogging… observing the journeys of others… grateful for all the teachers…

And now it’s time…

Suddenly in the last few weeks I have felt a build-up… an increasing pressure inside like the words want to burst out of me… The words have been bubbling over in conversation and I have been speaking a lot more than usual whenever I have had the opportunity to do so…

I have moved through doubts about how what I share may be received or not received… and what it might mean to put myself out there…

I cannot know… let’s find out

I feel ready to deal with whatever may emerge… knowing that with the flowering of every rose there may be thorns…

 

A deep breath… an exhale…

40 weeks after my last post this blog is ready to be born…

Hello world!
