This. Moment. 🙃
I have been working on a new website for the better part of a year. And have been talking about launching a new website for a good 3 years. I could blame it taking so long on being a recovering perfectionist, but I think it goes so much deeper than that.
My job, this work, is so intricately woven together with my identity. It’s not something I clock into and leave behind when the day is done, it takes up every ounce of my being. It’s the baseline to all of my interactions. I find myself being a doula in some capacity to almost everyone I meet. I see light dance and interactions unfold as if looking through the lens of my camera. There’s no “off” switch.
When I sat down and talked to EpicDanger about all things website & brand, it was clear that - my services aside - what I do in this work is offer myself; my whole self, showing up and holding space in every area of my work. It was decided that my new site would be focused on me and what I offer. No more hiding behind my work.
*CUE: SO MANY FEARS AND INSECURITIES*
But insecurities and all, Nick wouldn’t let me back down or shy away from this new direction (thank you, friend). Although, my fears definitely prolonged this site coming into the world. Those fears showed itself in ways of procrastination and being overwhelmed with work & big life changes (+ so much grief this year). Even this morning as I type this, I hesitated to post it’s live because “there are all these little things I want to add.” But it’s been live for over a week now and I’m damn proud of how beautiful it looks and how well it represents who I am and what I stand for.
So without anymore time to get in the way of my announcing it...HERE IT IS IN ALL ITS GLORY. Please take a look at it. Especially on a desktop because it’s so pretty, but it looks good on mobile, too 😉
A million thanks to Nick North for being one of my dearest friends and lovingly pushing me to show up as myself and taking up space in the world. Shannon ( https://www.nickandshan.com/the-workshop ) for designing such a beautiful site & having patience with me dragging out this process. Kristen Kalp for calling me out and lovingly holding my hand throughout all these years.
