Stepping into the arena – Part 1

New year new decade.  My word for 2020 is fierce.  I’m determined to pull my word out when I am doubting myself.  My doubt often comes into play when I have an idea. You know, oh that has already been done. It is not ready, I can’t pull that off.  I am sure you can add to the list.

In an earlier post I wrote about my purpose.  To show up and hopefully make a difference.  This year I wanted to show up more. Be more supportive.

I have always gotten energized listening and brainstorming with people.  I thought about forming a group where ideas are shared and promoted. I discussed this with a friend, setting up another blog and offering a creative place for people. Outside of Facebook or having a blog.

I started thinking of blog names that would encompass what I was thinking about. It wasn’t until I sat back, took a breath and thought about what was already on my plate. Other projects I wanted to tackle and finish that I realized I had a platform already.

You can always start now! I don’t think I could ever come up with another name that incorporates so much.  So this is my platform for my new endeavor.

My idea is to have creative monthly challenges and a place to showcase them.  You don’t have to have a blog to join in. These will be creative ideas to take us outside our comfort zone.  I am thinking photography, writing, painting, exploring and more.  We can share our thoughts, pictures and ideas in the comments.

I also want to offer a safe place to ask for help. If you are struggling with an idea or how to move forward to let us know and let us help.

I know Facebook is not for everyone and more people are taking a break from it, so I wanted to have a different platform.

I am excited to see where this leads. I am aware it might not take flight and that would be disappointing but not as disappointing as if I never tried.

Embracing fierce and having less regrets means trying new things. You tried it. Being willing to step into the arena not knowing if we will triumph, because stepping into the arena is the win what happens there is a bonus.

So deep breath.  I am stepping into the arena.  Visit the first Wednesday of the month for the idea, showcase whatever! It is all good.

You can always start now!
