No, it’s not a new baby, ha! (I wish)
I have a different kind of baby, something that’s been growing for about a year and a half now. Quietly, bubbling up as an idea, then overflowing with heated energy where I find myself waking up at 4am in the morning to work on it. Something that really lights a fire within me, that I am truly passionate about.
This will be my last post to Tiny Tow Heads, I’m shutting it down. It served its purpose well, and has been the stepping stone for what is coming next. Putting words to paper in this little blog helped me realize where my passion lies, and where I should pivot in my life going forward.
I started this blog right before I did an IVF round that I was sure that would work, we were expecting a little girl. A dream come true, I was certain she would be a blondie just like my son, so I named the blog Tiny Tow Heads, (plural), well, she didn’t make it to this world. And neither did her sister, and two others that we don’t know the gender of. And the pain of this last year and a half has been tremendous.
I was kind of relieved when scrolling through social media this last New Year’s Eve and reading through everyone’s updates on how their 2018 was. It seems like most of you didn’t have a great 2018, and you were ready for 2019 to be better. Of course I don’t wish a hard year on anyone, but it’s kind of comforting when you feel like you’re not alone in your pain. Other people are going through hard stuff too.
It was in the middle of my pain that I read an inspiring book called “Freefall to Fly” by Rebekah Lyons, and she said the secret to finding your true passion and calling in life is to discover the place where your natural gifts and your greatest pain align.
And I found that all right. And I’m running with it, and haven’t looked back.
I’m so excited to introduce you all to what that is, because it really helps the pain I have been through feel worth it (well, kind of, but not completely).
So keep an eye out, I’ll be doing the big announcement soon, and there is much more to come!
