At first I thought I was free falling, Tom Petty style. But I’m too Type A for that.
I realized I’m jumping headlong. I’m in the middle of a daring, deliberate, exciting, exuberant leap–into 2011. In my OCD way, I’ve thought about it long & hard
but it’s time to shit or get off the pot so it’s time I make a conscious JUMP. Like this one, only perhaps slightly less graceful.
I’m attending my first bona fide writing/blogging conference, Blissdom, in Nashville next month. I have two kick-ass roommates, both Louisiana gals: @elainea & @birdonthestreet. Initially I was on the fence about it, but while at lunch with my mom and Katy (@birdonthestreet),
there was some serious arm twisting going on the lightbulb went off. And The Voice said:
What are you waiting for?
Now is your time. It’s your turn.
Just go for it, you deserve this. You need this.
This will help you start writing your story. It’s your time.
A lot of this also stems from the incredible book I just finished, Love Your Mess, by @AllisonNazarian. I’m embracing myself as I am, while at the same time taking steps toward a new me, a me who is comfortable in her own skin. I. LOVE. MY. MESS. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, people.
What are you jumping into for 2011? It’s okay to be scared.
