“I applied to bring CreativeMornings to Sac 3 years ago in a time of my life when I was lost and confused in my career and doubted my abilities. New motherhood had tweaked my identity, things weren’t going well at work, but for some reason I felt the urge to challenge myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As someone who was always behind the scenes by choice, I seriously doubted if I was “host” material. I knew I had value, but I wasn’t polished or flashy, would people pay attn? Was I worthy of the responsiblity? I was so so scared to submit our application, but @little_loki and I shot a video about our creative community and I got an interview with @creativemorning HQ. They said yes. 😳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

After this experience as Host, I truly know that none of those fears mattered, nor was I special for having them. Not my fear of public speaking, not my awkward stage presence, and not my shy tendencies. I’ve never felt more ‘myself’ as I do onstage, and the love back from the audience is palpable. One of my goals was to create an 'introvert-friendly non-networky, networking event.’ I have often people say they nervously dragged themselves out of their homes to attend alone and they had a great time. Its my favorite thing to hear. Big changes happen to us with these little steps and you can actually change your life by opening yourself up to them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So my parting advice on the subject is: don’t create your identity around your fears. Why not find a way to flip the narrative and realize your true nature is your gift to the world? Most importantly, if you put your heart into something, people will see the light in you. Period.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Thank you Sacramento for showing up for us, each other and yourselves. And keep coming, I’ll still be there, just sitting in the audience with you ✨🤗” -RP — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2LfrDmb
