June was all about RELEASING, whether it be clutter around my home and office, or past relationships, beliefs, etc. It was a massive amount of LETTING GO, and to be honest, it was quite liberating. I felt so much lighter and my home FINALLY felt organized. I went through a boatload of files and photographs and tossed and shredded so much. WOW! What a release. Then when July 1st rolled around, I felt, OKAY - NOW I can begin anew. I was going to post a JULY 1st blog about this NEW YEAR for me and once again, it didn't happen. Not because I wasn't ready, but because my creativity was flowing and I needed to CREATE other things, in particular, my new Publishing Academy.
I had been procrastinating for months on the videos which would appear on my website and throughout social media. I'm not sure why but for one reason or another, I would talk myself out of creating them. Then last week I finally created one for the Academy and it wasn't painful at all. Actually it turned out pretty well. I thought, "what was I so concerned about?" Anyhoo - I created two more the other day, one for the HOME page of my Official site - www.CaliGilbert.com and one for my new membership group, Authors Unleashed. I was pleased with both and now I'm working on just a few more before I officially launch.
This WEEK has been simply AMAZING in more ways than one. I'm learning so much about myself and how I view the world. I'm also learning more about business and the type of business I want to create to support others who have a story to share. It's an exciting time and I can't wait to see what comes next.
The photo I posted is from my secret garden behind my home. We have a new baby tree that was just planted last week and it's so beautiful to see it standing there amongst the massive trees around the garden. To me it's a sign of a new life as I begin this new chapter in my own life. So if you feel like you simply need to start over and begin anew, just know that you can do it ANYTIME you feel is right for YOU!
Onward and Upward,
