Business Baby Birthday
My business baby is 3 years old today. 💛
Even though it took me five years to conceive and birth the idea of Voxel Hub in 2019 in memory of my Dad (with whom I share this day as Nameday), it is only growing into toddlerhood now, and loads is about to change, evolve, focus and sharpen soon.
Along the way, a few tried to help themselves to the idea but replicated it badly, misinterpreting the core need altogether.
Because it is me, it is evolving with me and with our times.
The fear of technology is so deeply rooted that my way of healing it is almost always profoundly misunderstood. This year I have arrived back to my core and validated why we need to embrace the digital age for our wellbeing: for our own survival. It’s sad that many had to realise this due to COVID, it’s even sadder that many more chose to ignore that announcement too.
I continue raising this child with my village – because that’s the only sustainable way.
Thank you to every single person who supported me, held me, healed me and challenged me and called me out. You all make this journey into the wonderful adventure it is, and we are saving and extending lives.
Grateful to you all.
A day of difficult decisions: planned (unwanted) endings and some incredible ones too. I am so grateful for the good people who show me the light and lightness, who hold me through emotional days like this and witness me as I am: human. We’re in this together, and those connections matter so much.
Thank you. Go softly!
Walking in the light
So many people are scared to walk in the light, and sadly drag us into the darkness.
As I’m closing this learning cycle, I’m beginning to understand that the work I do is to liberate those captivated and sometimes those leading in the dark.
We all deserve to walk in the light. Take the first step softly.
On the move again
First run of 2021 – waited for sunshine and warmth. So chuffed I got the level of effort right to get back to the 5K training. #Hillfields #Bristol
We have lost so much. We have learned so much. We have unveiled so much. No wonder we are in pain.
However, remember: no one said that an honest, rich, connected…felt life is supposed to be easy.
Feel it. You are not alone.
Where is our heart…
Bristol’s heart is still beating but so many are not paying enough attention. Listen to the silence – who is not mentioned, who is gone unmentioned and undocumented?
In those cold times I am so blessed with good people checking in and carrying me forward. Thank you. With your support I can help others too. So much in my identities and belongings is shifting these days. So many layers evaporate and I am becoming more of myself. I have learned so much about kindness and cruelty, action and silence in the last five years and it is all finally settling into me, integrating into the way I work. I can only promise this growth won’t stop. And I am so so glad I have friends who guide me but also call out my blind spots. Love to all the good people out there.
My favourite strawberry tree. Still standing tall.
A new (to me) local take out. Turkish language, colourful tiles, tv screen with a relaxation videos from a dedicated website featuring small Swiss churches and high mountain peaks filmed by drones. Empty. Clean. Weirdly calming. 2021 feels so bizarre.
Waking up still
I promised myself to slow down in February but as I do so, I am accomplishing so much more! Piles and piles of ideas flow out of paper. I wonder if it’s just slowing down or the fact that the nature is waking up?
