First, resist. Next, relax. Then, just bee.

And there ya have it folks, it’s official. I have a website, with an original, clever and witty name – ha! Apparently the trend these days is to be super straightforward. Now you know-where to go-to find me. Simply remember my name and add I’m the bomb dot com (tee-hee). This has been a long time coming.

Therefore, th maniacal last laugh goes to the Universe for it has always known the way. I on the other hand doubted my way. I wouldn’t relax nor trust what needed to be done because I used to have so many rules and conditions.“Oh no, I couldn’t,” “I shouldn’t,” “I can’t,” “I don’t know how,” “I’m not ready,” “I don’t know enough yet,” “I’m not enough _______ (fill in the damn blank).” I declared so much from my mountain top of fear and unknown. But that place of no wasn’t serving me. So I began to let go little by little. Saying yes to things I doubted, saying let’s see to uncertainties. And I practiced and I practiced. By putting myself out there I began to see how wide the world could be. I allowed myself to slowly explore my creativity; to dip my feet into the doodles, swim around in the writing process, test out new creations and guess what, I lived to tell the tale. Nothing.bad.happened. I wasn’t hurt. No one was harmed. The sky didn’t fall when I stepped out of my comfort zone. In fact the axis spun in this direction; when I got out of my own way I was circling back to where I started – that kid with the crayons, the land of make believe, the storytelling, the possibilities and man it feels great to release the resisting and lean into doing what makes me *bee* me.

So better bee-live it. I’m ready – let’s create, collaborate and connect one story at a time.
