working it out

I have begun to work through, haphazardly, my comments from the last post and responding to each one of them. I was so (BLLAAAAAAA WHAT IS THE FREAKING WORD??!!!) moved, surprised, Inspired, warmed, melted, jaw gaping open with amazement, thankful, heartbroken, wanting to repair my teleporter so I can zip over to any random corner of the world for tea (or coffee, Amanda) and thinking that perhaps the thing that is keeping my connections, maybe less than what they could be on the internet, is me and my holding on the the "physical experience as the ultimate ideal" a little too hard. I think If I pace myself I can find that electronic connections, while more time and energy intensive, may well be extremely valuable just as they are, not needing the physical ideal to flourish. My heartbreak only comes from a place that demands Ideals, and if I let that go just a little, I may well open my heart to the comfort of a good long spanning email conversation to someone in Paris, or the UK, or Israel, or Canada, or anywhere where YOU are. Again, thank you so much for telling me how you feel. It meant so much to me.

Oh, last little thing!  I am working with someone who is helping me shape the business end of my business!  She is an amazing woman and when we have the details worked out I will continue to share that process with you!  Its so incredibly exciting to see some actual evidence that this thing is coming to fruition! I apologize for my patchy attendance in this space but I do intend on continuing to regularly blog and include outfit photos and for those of you who are wondering, the vintage selling will continue eventually, I am just not sure exactly when and how much of it. I still have three rolling racks stuffed with stuff so its got to get to the shop eventually somehow! Allrighty!!  Thanks again!!

you know, there's a really cute cafe just down the street from my house. they have tea too :) i really cherish my internet connections. i'd never had though that in the beginning. i remember when chat rooms were all the rage back in high school and a friend of mine would spend hours talking to perfect strangers. i thought that was so crazy! but the thing is that you don't have to deal with the crap in an electronic friendship. you aren't required to call all the time or hang out for a play date. we don't have to see each other every second to know that we can still have something in common. no one is needy or clingy. it's a more pure, i like you and what you have to say and your outlook on life, kind of friendship. maybe i'm a lazy friend, actually i know i am. but i don't become friends with just anybody. and i def want to have that cup of coffee with you :)

I know I've been quieter around this old blog than usual, but just wanted to pipe up and say I have been reading all your posts lately, and looking forward to each one to find out more about this new venture of yours. 2011 will be great!!!

I'm so glad to hear things are moving along. I've missed reading your posts with my morning coffee. I am also hoping that some of your clients would let you blog about them. I admire your courage in sharing this whole reevaluation process with us.

I'm so excited for your new venture. I think becoming a Signature stylist is perfect for you. You've got your own sense of style and love that human interaction. You'll be able to help so many women discover their own style and fashion personality. - Katy

Christina (I called you Paige and then I had to correct myself), I am super pumped for you! I hope all these revelations stick and that things just keep getting better.
I can't wait to meet you in person but I hope we can still be virtual friends till then ;)
I'm not always on the same emotional level as you so sometimes I just can't force my brain to shut up so i can read and absorb your really personal posts these days. I'm also on a sort of self discovery quest... but it's a little more gradual and a lot more distracted. (ooo shiny things!) Hoping the new year pushes me to clear my mind a little. I definitely need to start yoga again, My stress is manifesting through my skin (eczema - skin problem on my hands) and I know that some good yoga and breathing would help.
I am excited for February :)

(sorry my comment might not be completely relevant to this post!)

Hello beautiful,
I'm so glad to hear that your business is shaping up in a way that makes you happy :) Life is short and it's so important to spend the time you have doing the things you love. I can't wait to see how all of this goes- if you're ever in Vancouver, I would most definitely be interested in your services :) Thanks so much for your lovely, lovely comment on my blog. I really thought your chart was amazing and I can't wait until you've got the program set up so that I can do one for myself!
xox,
Cee

I would check in with your blog periodically not because of the clothes, but because there was something about you that I was attracted to. Now I can see what it is. I find all of your insights terrifically interesting, and I really appreciate that you choose to share them here. The Truth transcends language and isn't dependant on personal contact to have an effect. Keep trusting yourself (and sharing when you can).
