Lately I have felt a really big shift in life.
Friendships, work, study and interests are either ending or beginning. Sometimes this is a gradual process, but in my case it feels like it is all happening at once. It has me thinking...
How do you maximise the opportunity of change?
To harness this great energy and inpiration, I am doing something I don't often do. Reach out to connect with the RIGHT people that will push me even further forward, create new friendships, business relationships and really put out there what I have to offer.
At first, this was scary, perhaps in the too hard basket "where do I even start?"
After reading this story recently, it was cemented. It starts with YOU and the desire to achieve your dream.
If you have a passion and you start moving into that field by talking to people, doing projects, studying - the Universe just knows it is right and I promise things WILL happen. You just have to start somewhere.
For me, a pretty introverted individual, reaching out to so called 'connect' with other bloggers, business owners and even just new crowds, really scared the pants off me. I much preferred hiding behind my computer studying graphic design or blending into the background of an event with my camera, but this isn't where the magic happens.
I once wrote happiness is only real when shared.
So I did it, I wrote to other bloggers and business owners. I told them how much I admired their work and even asked for tips and what works for them. The response was phenominal. People I had on a pedestal were actually human beings, from here it started to flow. Emails started to come to ME, from other bloggers wanting to connect or dropping a line to say they loved my content. wow, me, really?
I've even formed friendships with some incredibly inspiring women. So I found when you surround yourself with likeminded people, the possibilities are endless. Supporting one another and inspiring to keep going.
It all started with a simple email.
So yes, human bond/connection/friendship (whatever you would like to call it), is freakin powerful. Make it genuine and be loyal to your passion. The rest will follow.
Your task: Is there someone in your life or a blog you watch from afar? Someone who is always there at the right time? Tell them TODAY you love their stuff, style and/or support. Gratitude is a beautiful thing and is infectious.
