offerings

I’ve been thinking a lot over the last couple days about the offerings we put out into the world.

Let’s be real here. It is not easy to put yourself out there. It’s hard. And it’s vulnerable. And doesn’t always turn out as you hoped.

The first workshop I did, no one showed up. Literally no one. It sucked. It hurt. And I immediately wanted to silver lining that shit and convince myself that really it was all ok because I learned this, that and the other. I did not want to sit in the hurt. But sit with it, I did. And it sucked. And I also learned that I can feel disappointed and still be ok.

It took me a little while to gather myself and offer my offering again. And to be honest, I did not really want to put myself out there, but I did really believe in the offering. And so I did.

I was worried no one would show up. Actually I was worried it would just be me and my best friend because she’s sweet and supportive and was the first to sign up. Actually the only one to sign up for quite awhile. Yes, I checked in on the ticket sales more often than I care to admit.

Spoiler alert: this is not the story of the workshop that sold out. It did not. We offered 12 spaces. 4 women showed up.

But it was the exact 4 women that were meant to. We had a beautiful, connected, heartfelt experience and I was blown away by the sweet circle of intention and sharing and vision that was created.

So why am I telling you all this?

I guess what I’m trying to say is, I see you. And your offering. And it’s beautiful. And the world needs it. And it’s hard, I know. But please keep putting it out there.
