Yesterday I listened to another great episode of 'letters from a hopeful creative', by @jencarrington_ and @me_and_orla , in which they discussed mailing lists. I love sending “letters" to my community via email every other Wednesday. Having that direct connection with people who I know understand my ideas and message makes it such a safe place, for all of us there. While I share blogs on my website about enjoying business, being stubborn in pursuing the important things and being the best version of ourselves, these letters allow me to go deeper, get a bit more personal, and share things I’d be wary of posting online. My favourite letter to share was about how I absolutely do NOT believe that everything happens for a reason, and the responses I got to this simultaneously warm and break my heart to this day.
Listening to Jen and Sara yesterday reminded me to keep connecting through vulnerability, within those sacred letters. And a chat I had with the lovely @fbarrows last week reinforced the value of doing this - I have benefitted from other people’s honesty, making me feel less alone, and I will continue to try and do the same for others.
This week’s letter, out tomorrow, will be about how to overcome an obstacle, when that obstacle is YOURSELF. Sign up via the link in my bio, or DM me your email address if you’d like to receive it - 10 hours ago
