I hope you don’t mind, but this monthly goal setting post is a little unlike previous posts. I don’t know if it’s the change of seasons or the major change in routine I’ve had, but I’ve been itching for a little more change, much more action and a lot more life these past weeks.
See, when I rebranded E&M, I accomplished something I’d never done before, but always wanted. I create a space prepped for longevity. Finally, I had a some with some sense of stability, because I had placed in it everything I loved.
The first three months (can you believe it’s only been three months?!) have been pure bliss. Incredible, unexplainable bliss. I’ve been amazed at the growth I’ve seen, and the chances for growth on the horizon keep me daring and jumping for more.
But in the midst of growing, and filling this space with things I love and represent my values, I forgot to place one very special thing inside….
Does this brand represent me fully? Oh, yes yes yes! Am I always fully here, within the posts, on the scene rather than just behind them? No, not so much.
I believe in every post I’ve published, all the content I’ve created is authentic to what I think matters. But I’ll admit, sometimes coming here has felt a bit mechanical, and I’m ready to lose that feeling. I want readers to not only connect with what I’m saying, but also feel a connection to the girl who’s saying everything!
In this week’s newsletter, I spoke about celebrating the blessings in your life, and try to practice being a blessing in other’s lives. I was sitting at my desk, making a note full of all of the rainbows, or blessings, in my life. One thought that came almost instantly was the people who read Ember & March! Those of you who take the time to comment, to share my posts, to open up the newsletter and read even more of what I have to say, you all are a blessing to me, and I appreciate all of you. Beyond my gratitude, I want to establish a connection with you all so that I can know you more, help you more and grow this space even more!
That’s my goal for October, to fully infuse more of me into this space.
The next steps in this journey are so exciting, and I can’t wait to give you all more peeks into who I am. In the meantime, tell me more about you! Introduce (or re-introduce) yourself in the comments. Tell me who you are, what you do, and if you blog, please share a link!
I’m Amber, nice to meet you all…. again.
