Oh, you guys. I am so thick in the midst of tending trust this week. I’m working on projects that are out of my comfort zone and having waves of inner freak-outs washing over me, punctuated by all the moves I can pull to step into trust again, and again, and yet again. I feel like I’m in trust tending bootcamp!
One of the projects that’s both in AND outside my comfort zone is a book I’m writing called “Trust tending and the internet: A resource for transforming the way you use the web”. I’m listening deeply to all the ways my time online triggers fear and pushes me into comparison games, compulsive behaviors, and feelings of overwhelm. And I’m writing about the magic of tending trust alongside those feelings. I laugh sometimes at how much I need this book, and I’m pouring all my love into every word and illustration, hoping it will cultivate trust well beyond my self.
If you’d like to be one of the first to have it delivered, free, to your inbox, sign up for Trust Notes in the sidebar of my site. (If you’re already subscribed to my email list, you’re all set – no need to resubscribe.) My plan is to send it out to subscribers first, for any feedback or kindnesses you wish to offer. Kindnesses, with links back to your sites, will be posted on the book’s about page so people who haven’t read it yet know what they’re in for; constructive feedback will help shape what I do with the book going forward.
So about these Trust Notes!
I’m looking for ways to connect more personally with you than this forum allows. I want to be able to tell you some of the simple, rough, raw moments of fear and trust I’m facing and invite the kinds of stories and feedback that don’t always get shared in public comments.
So in addition to my once-a-week post on the blog, I’m going to try sending out a once-a-week note to those who wish to receive it – sometimes a brief thought or meditation, sometimes a simple sketch, sometimes questions I’d love company in trying to answer. And little gifts of love and thank-you sometimes, too!
If you’re already signed up to receive blog posts, you’ll automatically receive Trust Notes. And if you’d like Trust Notes, but don’t need blog posts sent to your inbox (I’m this way with people in my rss feed), you can sign up for the notes in the sidebar and simply highlight “Trust Notes only” in the drop-down menu.
I am so thrilled to be on this ride with you. I feel myself and ALL of us joining a movement that’s so big and so hopeful, of people growing trust, week by week, day by day, minute by minute. People transforming our world.
I love you, and bow deeply to all you are and all you’re becoming,
P.S. I’m speaking at The World’s Biggest Summit and would love your support as I do! This is a free, online event, organized by Leonie of GoddessGuidebooks.com, where 100 inspiring teachers are offering words of wisdom. I’m thrilled to be joining people like Julia Cameron, SARK, Jennifer Louden, and Fabeku Fatunmise in sharing some of my light. I hope you’ll sign up and come!!
