Last year I committed to kicking off a new program: When The Body Fails: Rebuilding Trust In Your Body. This was designed for women who have or have had cancer.
The program started as a weekend event. But we were in the middle of our book launch and timing wasn’t right for putting the right level of energy into marketing a new program.
Sounds reasonable to postpone – right?
Of course there is some truth to this explanation. However, I still haven’t moved this program forward. I took the advise of one of my mentors in the Equus world and decided to not go so big but just start locally and with more one on one coaching with women dealing with cancer.
Yes, I have done little bits in moving things forward. However, I am still stalling to do the workshop.
Okay so this program is so much like my book – Crazy, Cracked, Warm and Deep. You probably don’t even know about this book. It’s been in files and folders on my computer for years. It’s been shared with friends, possible editors and in short pieces online. However, the moment it gets any further out into the world. I stall and the book goes background. Fear stops me in my tracks – it’s my story. It’s my life through cancer through rebuilding and reclaiming myself – body, mind and spirit. I think I am afraid of the story still even though it’s been lived. Yet in that fear I hold it tight.
The good news is that even though the book still lies under the surface, I have written many blog post, shared my story and even published two other books that are heavily influenced by the backstory.
When Your Body Fails You, Rebuilding Trust is like the book. Why?
Because I am fearful.
I could go on and on about why I am fearful.
However, that sure seems like a self-indulgent story fuddling process.
I do want to kick off this workshop so here I go! It’s now one day and it is a start!
I am going to put a link to the flyer here – I know many of my readers are not local – but I would still love to hear from you too.
Plus if you are interested – well I still plan to do a weekend version and will add opportunities to weave in the healing influence of horses. So stay tuned!
May be some day – Crazy, Cracked, Warm and Deep will be the book that comes along with registrations.
What’s your fear holding you back from doing? What steps can you take to move ahead? I’d love to hear from you.
