I would be lying to you if I said that I wasn't both nervous and scared shitless about launching The Grit and Glitter Podcast. I have all the nerves. You know, the ones that knot up in the center of your belly and make you feel sick?! And the fear ... oh, the fear that leaves you wishing you could run straight into the most magical of forests where no one knew you and you knew no one and everything was perfect and you could forget about all of those horrible terrible fears that are pulling at your heart.
You must do the things that scare you. I cannot take credit for that quote, but I can take credit for living by it. You must do the things that make your heart pound right of our chest. You must take the big leaps ... the ones where you "lose your stomach" like on the fall of a roller-coaster. You must chase your dreams ... the big, scary ones that make you wonder if you've lost your mind because you're even considering the chase. You must do the scary things, chase the almost-too-big dreams, and run straight after your fears rather than letting them chase you.
You can do all of those things. If I can, you can.
I'm launching something next month that is so much bigger than anything I could ever create alone. It's the culmination of all of my experiences thus far (all nearly 26 years of them), the fears and doubts that are floating around in all of our heads every day, the beautiful souls who make this world a better place, and the power of our stories. I'm going to ignite a "me too" revolution. I'm going to create a pillar for beautiful, amazing dreamers and doers to stand atop and share their story, their struggles, and their triumphs. And WE are going to change the world.
Next month, I'm launching my biggest passion project to date!! I'm launching The Grit and Glitter Podcast. And I recorded the very first episode yesterday. My heart may still be in pieces on my office floor. It exploded during this call! It exploded a few dozen times in the best, most love-filled, inspired explosion ever. I had the beautiful honor of sitting down with a dear friend, listening to her story, and sharing in such a real, raw, soul-filled conversation.
I'm sharing the official launch date of the podcast later this week. (insert all the feelings!!) If you're as excited as I am, please sign up HERE! To those of you who have already signed up, thank you. I know I'm not alone and it means the world to me.
Excited? Comment below! I could use all the encouragement, good feelings, online hugs, and love possible! :)
