I’m Coming Out
Last week was tough. I got to a point where I realized I was doing something seriously wrong here. By Sunday evening, 9:30 (still in the office) I was pondering quitting. I hate to admit it, but I really was. I believe whole-heartedly that the Universe supports me and when something feels like a fight (especially against me) I have to take a serious look at it.
I can do challenging, tough, even hard, but when it feels stifling and like I’m fighting something, I have to take a step back and ask, "What is off?". I know flow, I’ve experienced flow, and Goddesses trust the flow. I’ve been asking myself I must be doing something wrong, what am I resisting? What is it? I’ve been holding the Faith and perusing the idea of Tony Robbins, Small Changes make Big Results.

Considering all of this, I took Monday off. I had some family stuff to attend to, which taking the time for that guilt-free felt great. And then I got a mani-pedi. And the angels must have told them I was coming because the nail expert gave me the longest pedicure, while I sat in the most amazing massage chair. Then! I got a massage while having my manicure and while drying…I didn't even ask for it! I of course tipped well. While she worked through the knots in my back, I asked the question what? What was each knot trying to tell me and what was there for me to let go of. And with each exhale I did.
I am in a very different place than I was on Sunday evening when I left the office telling a neighbor, I felt like quitting the site. I knew it was a moment, maybe, and what it really meant that there was something different for me to do. She told me to watch the Brene Brown Ted Talk on Vulnerability and it might help me out a little. This pesky word called Vulnerability had arisen a few times in the last few weeks. Please watch it and read this, to understand a bit more about my ‘training’ in this area.
I've dug dip, asked a lot of questions, asked friends, prayed, and meditated about it, it became clear and continues to do so. I'd love to hear what you have to say. Please email me any comments or suggestions on what you think would make this site more powerful.
Moving forward theCorporateGoddess.com is changing. I was trying to make it more of an online magazine with me as one of the writers. However, what people seem to resonate with more and what seems to be more in the realm of my current skill set is an online sharing of me, my musings, learnings, and perspective on this game called Life, Love, and Business. You will see way more of me on here, way more sharing, and way more…shall I say it Vulnerability. You will also notice some functional changes to support this, bit by bit.
Yes! There will still be experts contributing and being interviewed. I am clear that I need a team of experts, advisors, and mentors around me to continue in my Bold Yes! to life.
So join me, won't you? I'm excited this feels SO right and so much easier. I believe in divine flow, and when I was trekking uphill for so long…I realized I was doing something wrong, working against something. Not that times won't ever be tough, but I know the difference between tough and fighting the Universe. I was fighting, me, to hide, to keep my looking good, to not be seen. Ha!
One thing about saying Yes! and having a message to share. You gotta live it! And if you don't life will make it very clear where you aren't. Ahhh… one big exhale. SO, as someone who speaks to women about knowing they are enough and being fully self-expressed, I just got called out on my -ish, in a Big way. It's all good, mistakes happen, we stray for a bit…the key is to always return Home. I'm coming home!
