It’s 7:09am, and I’m sitting at the dining room table in my dad’s house in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. It’s raining outside, the sound of which is barely making its way into the background, now that we have two dogs snoring in the room across from me. I had no intention of writing in this space, or even writing today at all. And yet, when I sat down with my coffee, the first thing I did was open up my website (old habits die hard) and click on the “Add New” button. And now, here we are. :)
Hi! Hi. Hello. It is genuinely so nice to be here.
Apparently, it’s been 793 days since I wrote my last proper blog post. I’m not sure how you sum up 793 days in a few paragraphs, and so I’m not even going to try. Sitting at the keyboard today, the only thing I want to say right now is that: I’m here. I have capacity in my life and my heart and my nervous system to be here with you right now. This hasn’t been true for all of the last 793 days, but it is true right now and it feels good to be able to share those words.
I don’t have plans for this space. I don’t know how often I’ll write, or what I’ll write about, or what we might have discussions about. On that note, please know you have full permission to read or not read. To comment or not comment. To consume and interact with what I share in whatever way feels good for you. My only hope is that when you show up here, you feel like you are able to do so as your full self. Similar to all the years before, I will always commit to this being a safe space.
I will leave it there for now, friend. Hitting “Publish” while that still feels exciting. :)
Take good care of yourself today, xx
