Note: (What it Means) When Someone Says (they Need Space)


I’m tired.

Showing up.

It’s exhausting, it’s demanding, and it’s frustrating.

Long hours of thinking, tweaking, and listening.

I’m learning though.

To show up is not knowing victory or defeat.

It’s understanding the necessity of both; it’s engaging.

It’s being all in.

It’s daring greatly.

So here I’m again daring greatly.

The lessons on healing they are up.

When I say heal.

I am to nurture courage.

That’s what the course is about.

First lesson.

Second lesson.

The first interview on vulnerability is up.

I’ll be posting a lesson per day.
