#Longesttitleever. It’s St. Patrick’s Day today, so celebration and conversations about luck are in the air. But it’s rainy here, and unseasonably cold in Northern California, so my Saturday started with sleeping in and staying under the covers doing the ultimate time suck – scrolling social media.
As I spent the hours on Twitter (growing increasingly disgusted by the utter nonsense of our current administration) I flipped over to Facebook to check my messenger. There was a notification from a former company employee – something a bit out of the ordinary, given I haven’t seen him in years – so I clicked in to check it out.
UMMMMMMMM… WHAT?! HOLY CRAPBALLS! It was better than Christmas #TWSS I can’t believe this just happened #TWSS My life is changed FOREVER – AGAIN – #TWSS!! Literally every reaction I could make to ranking #1 on Google for my favorite hashtag IS AN ACTUAL THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID.
Everything became clear in this one moment.
I have been feeling foggy about where to go after my book release over a year ago. Because I am a professional marketer, I have struggled to connect with the audience I currently have, as I suspect many people are hesitant about helping me promote my book because of the sexy part (Which I still don’t understand why people are so afraid to talk about sexiness). Then I got busy with the things that help me make a living, the whole time longing to flip the script and make money doing what I really love – having time to be curious, writing about it, and sparking conversations about things that make people laugh about the absurdity of it all. It took me a long time to get over the #fakenews that life has to be serious, and that no one will take you seriously unless you talk about serious things. And especially now, I feel like the world is calling for lightness and laughter to bring us together, because #Lort there is not enough tequila to get me through another round of that.
What I hadn’t noticed is that over the last year, the content I was pushing out across my social media channels was writing the story for me and I never even saw it until now. Wow, was I reminded that if you ignore that voice in your head and the signs from the energetic field that have been trying to get your attention for so long, they will slow knock at your door repeatedly until you finally answer the call.
