I've struggled to write, for months. I've been stuck and everyone knows it. I know it and the message from people, asking why I'm so quiet and when I'm going to post another entry on my blog, they know it too.
I've been stuck for ages and have kept pushing at what I'm familiar with and what works. Project Me works!!
Project Me really works! Actually, it works so well that I've blossomed from this fragile bud into a blossoming human being. It's taken me from fragile human, cocooned?me for over a decade and allowed me time to emerge as a happy, conscious, successful woman.
Yet, the story of Project Me is about realisation and the steps I need to take to live each day as my own project. Could you explain to someone what driving is like, every single day of your life, and feel like a broken record once driving is mastered?
It took me months to have this astounding realisation, which got me so stuck that I haven't been able to work on the Project Me book.
I'm the human who chose the nature of pushing myself to the depths of frustration before the profound realisation arises. Why do I do that to myself? Who knows ... who cares! At the end of the day, it shifts me to another level, which is always perfectly timed.
So my realisation is that Project Me is a part of me. It's not all of me and it's not what defines me. I define me!!
Every time I opened my blog & looked at the WordPress theme I had chosen a few years ago, I couldn't relate.
Every time I wanted to write another profound realisation I had, I realised I hadn't had one. I'm now living a different chapter of my story, but I was forcing myself to write in the old one.
Honestly, I planned to revamp the blog months ago, but got suck in needing everything to be perfect before I changed anything. That's so old me ...
So I waited for new moon (because we know my alignment with all of The Universe) and I braved a scroll through different WordPress themes. I played around and changed it up.
I went back to JODENE as the URL and blog name and I've made Project Me a part of ME!!
There so much to me ... the writer, the entrepreneur, the speaker, the foodie, the girl who loves bubbles, the cat mom! All of this defines me and so I'm going to write about it all.
Nothing is complete, but I'm throwing it out into the world and I'm going to let it unfold before your eyes.
So many of you have made such impact along my journey and I can't begin to say thanks to those who have read Project Me, been a client, a friend, shared wine or a glass of bubbly with me, posted a pic of a cowboy or cheered me along my path.
With that love and support, I'm turning the page!
My blog has a new look.
The best part is that I chose a temporary theme and half the "pages" are empty, because I am having the blog professionally done, by the most amazing team (who deserve a blog post of their own in time) and my content management is also under the watchful eye of another incredible woman (who was the final push over the edge for me ...), but for now, I am just thrilled to have set myself free!
Thank you for the months of support, as I figured my way out of being stuck. Project Me helped me blossom into this new chapter, Defining Me and I can't wait to share all of me with you!
This calls for bubbly ... right?
