It's been a little over a year since my last blog post. When I started writing back then, it was honestly from a place of scarcity, feeling like I needed to create something of mass-marketable value that I could cross-post to LinkedIn (my personal black hole of career and growth platitudes). As the year has unfolded, I've been challenging myself to think more about how I want to work, how I want to spend my time, and how I want to express myself. Shockingly, I no longer want to work at creating mass-marketable pieces, I no longer want to spend time in narrow ways, and I no longer want to express myself with cross-post-ability in mind.
This is going to mean that this blog takes a turn. This will be more of a creative and analytical space. I'll still talk about my work in coaching and facilitation, but I'll be talking about more. I'd like to talk about how I've been navigating dissonant thoughts in the personal and professional arenas, the traps of late capitalism and the climate crisis it unrelentingly feeds, and how I'm spending more time thinking about health and death these days. This will be more personal, messier, sillier, and probably a lot more frustrating to follow, but I hope you stay with me. I can say that I will be fighting every day to stay with myself and would be grateful for the company.
Next week I'll be back to officially get into it and talk more about the dissonance I've been experiencing around identity and work. Thank you for being here.
