40 Days of Inner Voice – Day 6

ADVENTURES ON THE STRIP

I got to see an actual friend IRL today.

It's a rare thing for me to see friends IRL because I'm still living in a new city that I moved to in the middle of a pandemic. So whenever I see that people are coming to town, I message them and say, “Um hi!” 

It was so nice to be able to go see the friend and meet her friend as well. It was a nice Tuesday adventure. I wasn't sure how it was going to flow completely after, so I had brought my laptop and my bag with me, but ended up just carrying it up and down the strip.

The mind has its moments of squawking about wanting to bring in more money on purpose.

It's challenging as an entrepreneur to completely drop the “so that” money as the inner voice asked me to do these 40 days. I am running a business afterall. It's not like Target is like, “You know, we should just stop doing things so that we make money.”

Which reminds me of a conversation I had today when hanging out with the friends. We were talking about how some farmers in rural areas, like where my friend lives, “only” take care of their property, livestock, and make their food from the land. It's interesting that we now think that that is almost a dream, not being on computers all of the time, and craving the appearing simplicity that it seems at first glance.

I had a private client today that I have been working with for six months so far. We had worked together previously, another six months, I believe. I love our sessions together. She always enters a bit frazzled, but by the end always says she feels better. Today she asked, “Why doesn't everyone see things like you do? Why are normal people not like this? Not that you're not normal…” The recognition felt so good to my Projector heart.

What else is there to journal about today?

I feel so thankful for the “mastermind” (for lack of a better term) that I'm in, run by Lauren Armstrong, called Projector Playground. The women in there are just the best and I felt comfortable enough today to share more vulnerably that I feel like I have felt like I have been able to in a long time. It's amazing how warming to the soul mutual vulnerability in a safe space can be.

I suppose that is all, for today.
