Welcome to November! Did you all have a good Halloween? Thomas and I dressed up as Harry and Meghan (the Duke and Duchess of Sussex).
October was the biggest and fullest month I've had since I got sick back in early 2015. There was a lot of trying things for the first time with my limitations.
I worked outside my house all day for the first and second time. I spent one day at The Riveter on Capitol Hill and the other in coffee shops and someone else's office in Pioneer Square.
I attended a startup and investor meetup to talk about Sapient Living (which is on hold right now).
I celebrate 1 year of successfully using the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) for birth control. I learned how to do FAM from Hana Wellness, if you are interested in trying it yourself.
I attended the Pacific Northwest Events Expo and after party. I ended that particular Tuesday on a rooftop bar in downtown Seattle sipping champagne.
My oldest nephew, Joey, turned 18!
My house survived more plumbing and electrical issues. All the upstairs pipes and some of the downstairs pipes had to be replaced. I handled the emergency by myself (calling around, finding the right help) when the pipe sprung a leak.
I've started planning my 10 year high school reunion.
I went out with new friends to get tea, go shopping and go out to eat. It was a little nerve wracking being in other people’s cars, in unfamiliar places and not having anyone around who knew how to take care of me if I got triggered. I ate a lot of Pho which is my favorite (and kind of only) option when eating out.
All of this was extremely encouraging and I was so excited that I didn't feel triggered at the events or even much the next day. Unfortunately, it did all end up hitting me in one big wave later on. So… I’m not out of the woods yet and I've spent the last 5 days or so in, on or around my bed letting myself recover.
These experiences have taught me a lot including what I can and cannot do at this point. I know I can attend an event even if it's a little scented, but I will still pay for it at some point.
What this means for my business is that for the immediate future I am releasing any plans I had to do physical productions and networking. Instead I'm doubling down on all things web based.
In the next few months you should keep an eye out for my consulting and influencer work. I'm pretty pumped about it!
What's in store for you next? I'd love to hear what you are up to. If you have a minute, hit reply and send me a little status update.
Love + Light
