Hi friends! Spring is in full swing and I am learning to be bold about expressing my moments of joy.
Launching One little Note was a sweet moment for me this past month on many levels and I’m unapologetic about expressing myself and embracing this new season. I feel a great sense of gratitude to everyone who continues to unconditionally support me. I am humbled by the loving people in my life who show me daily how I am never alone in my efforts. Even a small passion project like this takes a great deal of creative thinking and planning with good friends/amazingly patient listeners. Truly, a project that in some shape was brewing in my mind and in my heart for over ten years.
I have been asked why? My friends and family who know my schedule and life responsibilities wonder why would I would embark on a project like this at this point. I am an oncology nurse by profession, not a photographer, social media expert, or art director, etc. This project is very different than the work I do every day with my patients. I agree, but I am a firm believer that as a woman, I am not just one thing. Because I’m a nurse does not mean I cannot also be a skilled photographer, a beautiful writer or a motivational force in someone’s life. I can build community. I can do many things.
In fact, I believe that passion projects can create synergy and balance within our lives. With OLN, I feel like I’m headed to an unknown, but exciting destination…. and I’m the overzealous tourist soaking up every second of the journey. I feel expansive and connected to a positive and creative ever-growing group of friends who are sharing their personal journeys as well.
When I work towards a goal, create something new, connect with my community, become a change agent in some small way and bring a positive project to fruition- I do all of these things inspired at the core by my children.
I wake up every day facing numerous challenges, same as the next person. But with full certainty, I can say there are little moments of pure joy throughout the day just waiting to be noticed. And this page is one more that I’m adding to my list!
