Confession: I am not a project girl. In fact, when it comes to thinking of projects I am completely unoriginal and honestly, really boring. (I can’t believe I just used I and boring in the same sentence. Scary.) The ironic part is that I LOVE getting behind a project, putting my energy into it, being a part of something big and life-changing and beautiful. But I’ve been spending the last 6 months trying to think of something I can project-ify, and I think it’s time to stop and accept the fact that I am not a project girl. I am not mission-based. I am not the sort of person that can channel all of my passion into one applied force, charging into the world. And I so envy the people that can, but it’s time to get okay with the fact that I can’t.
However, I saw this brilliant idea on a blog I’ve been sort of following, and it got me thinking: even though there are a lot of things I’d like to be passionate about, there is one thing that has always stuck with me. I’m addicted to stories. In fact, it’s practically an obsession. And while many people prefer to tell stories more than hear them, I love to curl up with a mug of tea and listen away. And who doesn’t like to be heard?
So I thought I’d try something, a concept that may sound sort of crazy: let’s get coffee sometime, you and me. I’m looking for five people, just five people, starting high school or having grandbabies or mid-life crisis people. Maybe you feel stuck or invisible or you need advice and don’t have anyone to go to. I don’t profess to be a therapist, but I do have ears to listen. Bring your questions, your doubts, and your fears, because I don’t go halfway on anything and I like to hit deep.
Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org including these two things:
1. Your name
2. How you’d like to meet (phone call, Skype, in person (will depend on where you live))
Looking forward to hearing from you!
