The Case of the Disappearing Selly

Where oh where have I been.  I kind of pulled a disappearing act didn’t I?  The good news is, nothing happened and clearly I’m still alive. Sometimes life just gets really busy, and we have to unwillingly neglect the things we care a lot about. And to me, you’re the thing I care about, dear reader. I’m sorry.

My day to day is spread between so many different things that it’s honestly been difficult for me to sit down and write something that I feel is worthwhile. Worthwhile in the sense that it isn’t something that’s just about me, but something that can resonate with all of you. Which is kind of ironic, given that I’m writing about myself right now. I have a ton of things I want to say, but I haven’t been able to bring my fingers to my keyboard. I have, however, been happily playing with Periscope. If you’re on there, let’s connect!

Today is exactly 1 year since we filled out all of the paperwork to officially create a legal entity out of our business, and 1 month from now (on Friday the 13th of all days) we took the leap and were off to the races. It’s amazing how time flies when you’re living through some serious (good) life changes. I would have never expected to be where we are at this very minute, and it feels pretty damn good. I feel really lucky to have the friends, business partners, and clients that we have right now.

With that said, I have a lot of balls up in the air right now on projects (some solo, some partnered) that have the potential to be exponentially awesome, and I may or may not have (ok, I did) entered a competition for this summer that I’ll hopefully share details for soon. It’s scary, and so, so exciting at the same time. I want to share all the things that are going on in my life right now, but that would be boring, wouldn’t it? :) That, and I don’t want to jinx myself by sharing something prematurely. (I do it all the time.)

I’m trying to end this dry streak on my blog, so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve been adventuring just so I can come back and have some exciting insights and stories to tell you. I think some radical changes are afoot, and if 2015 continues on with this trajectory, those changes may come to fruition sooner than expected. I feel like everything went into hyperdrive.

I do have a few topics in mind that I plan on writing about. I’ve been really bad about keeping track of ideas because I get them randomly in the shower, when I’m working out, or when I’m asleep. I have a Moleskine that I’m using for the sole purpose of tracking these types of things, so that should keep me honest on actually turning them into a post you can read.

I’ve been practicing a lot of “realism” lately.

sun tzu quote

For those of you who know my deepest desires, I’m a bit of a dreamer. Ok, who am I kidding, I’m a total dreamer. But in the past year, I’ve really been putting the practice of realism into play. Realism forces you to look objectively at the situation at hand, and take metered steps to achieve what it is you’re aiming to do. It requires adjusting at each step you take, because you’re adjusting to the actual environment and progress at hand, rather than only being driven by the stars in your eyes. It helps you build the staircase to the stars you’re reaching for. I’d like to think this is part of the success I’ve been seeing and the confidence I’ve been feeling. I know exactly what cards I’ve been dealt, what I’m holding, and the cards that I need – everything I need is in my own hands.

Now, if only I could conquer meditation… *sigh*

My god, this feels like a journal entry where I’m just vague-booking myself. I should probably stop now.

What’s new with you lovelies? Do you have any exciting things that you’re looking forward to this year?
