I’m living inside 140 characters
So much is running around my head yet I can’t seem to process my thoughts into more than 140 characters. I’m excited about the 21 Day Mom Renewal Challenge that I’m hosting on Facebook, but again, that doesn’t require more than 140 characters at a time.
My intention this evening was to write my first blog post for the Women’s Channel on Technorati. I’ve been at my computer all night staring at a white screen. So I finally decided to write about my inability to write. To acknowledge the problem and plow forward anyway.
So here I go. I’m writing. Trying not to judge myself. Already not liking how this post is going. I ask myself…
Why do I have writer’s block?
(my list of brainstorming answers)
- I have been spending too much time writing on micro-sites, which only require 140 characters or less.
- The perfectionist in me thinks I need to be wittier and funnier than I really am.
- My head is spinning in too many directions.
- I’ve been neglecting my meditation practice.
- I’m too tired to think.
- I’m not ready to publish what I really have to say.
So what is it that I really want to say?
I want to say that I am so done with my Corporate America job. I’m ready to use my time and energy and life to heal the world and manifest a shift in the human spirit. There’s so much more to say, but for now, I’ll leave it at that.
I want to say it’s essential for moms to dream big! I want to tell women everywhere to have patience, to get really clear about their dreams, and to move forward towards their dreams, no matter how small the steps are, every single day.
I want to give every mom permission to hold her dream gently in her heart, mind, and spirit.
Moving towards your dream is actually living your dream!
I want to tell women everywhere to keep their minds open to new possibilities. I want to remind them dreams do come true. I also want to remind them that dreams can be hard and scary.
I want to say have faith, be positive, be smart, and listen to your Inner Wisdom. You cannot go on your dream journey without your Inner Wisdom by our side. Listen to her cheering you on and reminding you why you are on this journey.
Who am I really talking to?
I want to share my words with moms. I want to inspire, empower, and give women permission to shine. But after reading what I just wrote, it now seems obvious that I am also writing these words to myself.
Perhaps these are the words of my Inner Wisdom and I’ve been too busy to listen to her. So I’m listening, I’m pausing, and hey…look at me, I’m evening writing again.
