Welcome to your ‘whenever I have something good to say’ dose of a little less bullshit and a bit more chocolate cake because life is always a little better with chocolate…and loved ones…and friends…and someone being honest, however much it may hurt to hear.
As I’ve said before, this is not your typical self-help site (or newsletter). In fact, it’s not a self-help site at all. It’s a site to trigger thoughts and questions about yourself, life and the world around you. A site to garner comfort when you are struggling in life. A site to realise that life is hard and it’s ok to not know all the answers simply because you’re an adult.
Though I despise the fact that we live in such a self-centred world right now always wondering what we can ‘get out’ of a situation or person, I realise that I am guilty of that too and so I have no doubt that you are wondering why you would even sign up for this newsletter because let’s face it, I’m 30 years old and don’t know everything; what could I possibly offer you!?
So here’s the answer;
I can offer you absolutely nothing. Nothing new at least; I am not that unique or special. But what I CAN offer you is the time and effort investing in helping you wake up a little more to how you are thinking and feeling about life and the people you come into contact with.
Business and marketing blogs tell me that an email list is absolutely the way to go in terms of connecting with your audience and I 100% agree because I love email; truly. I cannot tell you of the amount of friendships I have began through a simple email. However, the same blogs also tell me that I have to have a clear direction and voice with my list; that people aren’t going to sign up for ‘self-indulgent crap’. Ouch. So what’s left to talk about if I can’t tell you about the time the bag of cocoa powder exploded all over me and I was so depressed I couldn’t even laugh at the fact that my boobs were covered in chocolate?!
Life. Love. Goals. That’s what.
Any good therapist will say that it is not their job to tell you the answer; it is their job to help you realise the answer for yourself and in that vein, that is what my site and this newsletter to you is for.
Some days I might bring you laughter. Some days I might offer you a question to answer. Some days I might just talk so that you can know that you’re not alone.
For the moment I have a voice with no direction. Until I start receiving your replies, I won’t know what your struggles are in life and what you would like to hear me write about. All I can do is write something I would like to see in my inbox.
Maybe a silly joke (because who doesn’t need a laugh with all the depressing news in the world), maybe I confess I’m struggling myself or maybe I get you to take a scary deep in a direction only your heart knows.
There is no end goal for this newsletter; it is open to change. Change by you.
So, what are you waiting for? Subscribe.
You won’t regret it.
