Count Down: 10 Days

I’m currently reading Daring Greatly by Brené Brown. If you’re not acquainted with her studies on vulnerability and connection, here is one of her TEDTalks.

“…connection, the ability to feel connected… neurobiologically is why we’re here.”

Courage, Compassion, and Connection

I’m writing this post from a pretty scary place. I am sharing with the internet, that I will launch a crowdfunding campaign to begin funding, then ultimately building Bonus Room. This post is packed full of emotion as I realize the date I set for myself, May 12, Mother’s Day, is less than 10 days away. Reading a book about living whole-heartedly and embracing vulnerability was exactly what I needed to really kick off this month- thanks Seattle Public Library! (It’s worth the wait)

On the other hand, I’m feeling ready. With each day I research and write about what Bonus Room looks like, I feel more sure about how necessary this business is to create. I cannot sit back and wish for this magical place to exist. It’s time for me to dig in, get messy, and build it for all of us.

This may be the second cup of coffee talking, but I’m ready to be seen, love this project and community fully, and practice gratitude at every possible moment (especially the challenging ones). I believe that I am enough. I can do this. We can do this. It’s time to start the work.

Are you interested in being on The List to hear precisely when the campaign is live? I would be so grateful if you dropped your email below! I’d love to keep you in the loop and invite you to some super sweet launch parties.

Thank you so much for following along here and on Facebook and Instagram. It means so much to me to receive your comments and messages of support. I won’t be able to do this without all of you!
