I Am Well - Conversations

Getting Clear with Diane Whiddon

Here goes!

This year I've been obsessed with stepping outside of my comfort zone. I mean... why not start a video interview series or something? Leaning into the fear isn't always comfortable, but you might just surprise yourself. Try it :)

Like my friend Diane Whiddon from Novel Website Design, she quit law school to become a writer. I can't imagine how uncomfortable that must have been! She followed her passion and created a career that brings her joy and allows her to help others do the same.

Diane is an expert in "Getting Clear" - Sign me up! Ive already used her 3 simple tips for overcoming the "humps and hurdles" along at the way. 

I really hope y'all enjoy this interview as much as I did. I have the blooper reel to prove it!

Sometimes life is a Monet painting, covered in chaotic brushstrokes. It's only when we take a step back, that we can catch and understand the larger picture. We clear anxiety by sitting still and addressing it, because it's in the stillness that we prepare ourselves to deal with the perplexities of life which are often difficult.

I challenge you to spend 5min with your head in the clouds today. Nothing is as luxurious as simply paying attention. I know you'll appreciate this 10min video. Happy Monday!

Fake It Till You Make It

I'm scared everyday, but I make the choice to do it anyway and be great. Right now, I'm reading the "War of Art" by Steven Pressfeild and here are a few quotes that have rocked my world this month:

“Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do.

Remember our rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it. 

Resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates to the strength of Resistance. Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That's why we feel so much Resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there'd be no Resistance.” 

and one more great quote simply put:

“The most important thing about art is to work. Nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying.”

I hope some of these words inspire your own break-throughs in the weeks to come. Happy Friday!
