Sabbatical Announcement.

I am writing a quick note to tell you that I am taking a bit of a sabbatical from this space.  I have been working behind the scenes to align my work with how I best work.  Meaning that I am starting to focus more energy on in person workshops and group coaching opportunities.  The online creative entrepreneur sphere is a hard space for me to work within because I am so susceptible to comparison spirals, imposter syndrome and 2nd guessing myself into paralysis.  I work hard to honor my intuition in my business and I have found that I trust myself more when I am working 1:1 with folks.  I am more dynamic in person, I love myself more, and I feel as though the work is more aligned with my highest and best self, therefore making me a more pure conduit of service for the collective.  

That being said, I am not planning to go anywhere, I am not closing up shop, I am just shifting focus and that takes lots of writing, planning and creating.  My favorite stuff, other than smashing the patriarchy by teaching self-love.  

So while I may not be posting here for the next month or so know that I am fiercely writing my way into something really big for Walker Whole Health and I can’t wait to share it all with you.  

 

See you in April!

I want to show up for myself.

I used to be paralyzed by the idea of change.  I told myself that when I moved, or changed my job, or found a partner or lost the weight, my life would be better, happier, more fun.  But I never moved, I couldn't quit my job, I was perpetually sleeping with people who did not love me and I never have lost any weight.  I lived stuck in this story for years.  

I finally quit my job, and got a new one, in a new state, but it was really the same job.  I was still working too many hours, devoting too much of myself to a business that was run by a man who didn't value my expertise or opinion and wasn't willing to pay me my worth.  

This experience, moving, finding myself in the same place in a different space made me realize how much I needed to change my own narrative.  I needed to dive deep into my dreams and start recognizing what I valued, and what work I wanted to share with the world.  I wanted to show up for myself.  

I found that I wanted to share my strategies for sanity.  The tools and methods for staying alive when the world and all its sadness feels like the only thing within your reach.  I want to help other women struggling with their own worth, fighting with their own bodies.  

My overwhelm and paralysis are not gone completely.  I still struggle with showing up for myself. But I have recognized that reaching out, building community, and asking for support are vital to my journey.  By listening to other women tell their stories and share their success, I learn how to share my own.
