The Leap

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. This website has been in my heart, and on the world wide web since November last year. Today as I write this post, its the 2nd of April 2014. I have thought about this blog every single day for the last 6 months. I’ve angsted over it- written little drafts in my journal and on my iPhone. I’ve gotten quotes for web design and logos and all kinds of fun bloggy goodness. But not once have I sat down and started writing- like this- as I am now.

Why?

Because I wanted this blog to be absolutely gangbusters-out-of-this-world-awesome before any one knew about it. I wanted it to be bright and fun and interesting and enticing. I wanted it to be a true reflection of my vision, of me.

I wanted perfection.

Oh sweet irony! You see- the name of this site came from my own personal truth that I’d discovered after a few months of self exploration. It’s a simple concept- I don’t need to be perfect or on the same level as everyone else. I am already enough, as I am in this present moment and that nothing- past or still to come- can ever affect that.

Over the past few months, I think I forgot about that little nugget of wisdom a little bit. I stopped checking in with my heart and instead found myself caught up in the detail, stuck in a cycle of comparison and allowing my ego to get me down about how behind I was and I just didn’t think I was ready. I felt like I’d missed the boat, that I’d never be able to afford the beaming website I so envisioned and that this whole exercise had been a giant waste of time.

But then, an epiphany. I remembered my message. I remembered my purpose.

And I decided. Eff it- Take The Leap.

My commitment is this- I’m going to write from my heart. I’m going to allow the magic to happen rather then orchestrate some kind of grand entrance. I may not have a lot of time or money at the moment to build what I envision- but I can afford to crack myself open- to use this site as a place to write from my heart, share ideas, discuss and most importantly to connect with you, dear reader.

So please, join me on this journey and on this Leap. Trust that you have enough to get started and whatever it is that you’ve been procrastinating on for 6 months, weeks, days, hours or minutes- can begin today.

Much love and letting go to you- Erin x
