With No WiFi In The Forest You Find A Better Connection

Despite our best intentions life and business does not always go to plan. We put in the work, show up and are ready and willing to take action, but regardless of our efforts we spin our wheels.

So what do we do, push even harder to get the job done?

Or realise it’s time to pause and pull back?

One of my own intentions for 2019 is to finish writing my book and publish in the autumn. I’ve connected with a lovely copy editor and thought I’d have the draft copy done and dusted and sent over to her by the end of February. But alas no. The deadline came and went.

I haven’t been shirking. This delay was not due to a lack of effort on my part, as I’ve diligently spent hours and hours sitting at my desk writing thousands of words. However my thinking at the beginning of the year was that I just needed to flesh things out a bit.

There Is A Voice Within So I Write

There Is A Voice Within So I Write

There have been two constants that have sustained me throughout my life and are now entwined into my soul-led work and living brand. Writing and gardening. And yet it has taken a long time for me to recognise these two significant threads weaving their way in and out of my life and work since childhood.

WRITING IS MY GO TO

Even if writing wasn’t within my existing job role or a need to for my petite business I know I will always continue to put pen to paper. Just because it's what I love to do. 

First and foremost I write for me. To articulate my thoughts and ideas. To process what I feel and see going on in the world around me and of course to share my stories.

Writing is like my therapy and it has seen me through some pretty dark days and back towards the light. You could say it’s a lifelong trusted friend that doesn’t speak out loud, but gently guides me forward to discover the answers I seek all from the words written on the page.

And now I can clearly see that my writing practice sustains all of me, in my day-to-day life and within my petite business. It isn't one or the other it is a blend of both.
