Kind of a random thought, but wanted to open up for a minute. I was listening to a podcast recently, and they were talking about connection deficiency. I felt it really resonated with me as I am a new(ish) mom, live in suburbia, and run my own business. I don’t have team meetings (a partner call here and there, of course), coworker friendships, boss feedback, etc. I’ve realized that my role these days can sometimes feel a bit lonely. While living in the city, I had such a nice social calendar. Friends who were walking distance, girls nights plugged into my calendar weekly, and just access to more things to do at ease therefor opportunities to connect with people I crossed paths with daily.
I am still very much getting used to this lifestyle change, and it made me realize how much I appreciate hearing from you. Emails, DM’s, and through my AK Studio community forum. It has been such a light for me this past year. Just wanted to mention this / thank you / and share that if you ever feel like saying hello or sending a question my way, my blog comments are always open!
Saying this also because I know that sometimes reaching out to someone you don’t know can be kind of daunting, especially if you’re the person who never does. I feel this way too! I have sent notes in the past to a few who I don’t know personally and half the response weren’t always the warmest. Just a note to say I’m nice! And that I am here to help when I can and always happy to connect. xx
