I have become bored by the repetitiveness of my content creation. And I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I think it’s an invitation to reinvent, to let my inner artist loose on my content creation. Even the word “content” makes me cringe. And that’s my specialty: content creation. I feel so drawn to opening up, sharing from my heart, pure authenticity and creativity, no matter the cost, no matter what fear says. I feel so drawn to following each and every calling and beckoning of my heart, even when my mind says it makes zero sense. I want to lean in, and jump, trusting the net will appear. Trusting, deeply trusting. And above all, enjoying every moment of it, the ups and the downs.

 

Love,
Alex

  1. I’m always excited for whatever is coming next for you, Alex, you have blessed so many people (myself included!!) through both your authenticity and your desire to help people so I know whatever you do/wherever you go we will be following along with baited breath! 🙂

  2. So excited you’re back to blogging Alex. I know these days have been and are going to be tough but I also know that you will come out of it even stronger.

    I love you Alex!

  3. I am so glad it’s not just me. I used to think something was wrong with me bc all I ever wanted to do was live in Paris and create art. Painting, photography, music. It didn’t matter what the medium. I wanted to write in cafe’s and meet cute boys. Sometimes I worry I won’t ever be fully happy. Which is funny bc I’m the happiest person I know. But there’s a weird struggle for me emotionally that I don’t express. I don’t express it bc I don’t/can’t articulate it.
    Someday I’ll figure it. For now i just keep searching. ????

    1. I loved your comment Tracey! It resonated with me and definitely hit a nerve. I dream of creating a biz for myself that allows location independence so that I pursue my dream of owning a cabin in the woods and have the ability to travel and visit places like Paris, Marseilles, Tuscany, Dublin and Cairo. I long for the day when I can finally achieve this but all of this requires me to go against the grain, to go outside of the norm and that’s scary. But the most scariest part is when I really look within myself I don’t want to be “normal” rather I want to be the person that went after it….

  4. Alex,
    First off, I want to say that you have been missed a lot lately, but all your sparklers understand you need time…but I am so glad that you’re slowly coming back and more importantly that you are honoring the new direction you are being called to go in. You once said to all of us not be afraid to take risks and change directions if what you’re doing didn’t inspire you anymore. That stuck with me and it inspired me to honor the new path that was drawing me in and today I am closer to launching my life coaching business. So go for it! Make the changes and trust, I’m know the net WILL be there to catch you…

    Best wishes and big hug to you!
    Fabiola

  5. Alex I remember watching one of your first videos and how raw you were and yet you still made the choice to press publish and put yourself out there. I have watched your journey and watched you grow and I’m in awe. You inspire me to go after my dreams. You make me realize that they’re possible. I know you’ve been going through some trials and I have been going through something similar, and I realize every trial makes you stronger and more ready to attack the next challenge and not give up. I wish everything you want to achieve and to simply let you know – you’ve got this! Can’t wait to see what comes next in your new chapter of your life 🙂

  6. I wish I had your problem! Ive been following you on youtube and on periscope, #millionheartsforalex , and I just love how infectious your enthusiasm is. I have such a hard time finding things to blog about or post on instagram. I hope everything is good down wherever you moved to.

  7. Hey Alex,
    Thank you for this post. I echo the sentiment that your presence has been missed on SM for sure. I have to say that i’m going through a similar situation creatively. I often get bored with routine which makes me inconsistent in some areas of not just my business but my life in general. I feel like my mind is just buzzing with so many ideas that sometimes i don’t know where to start. On a personal level, i never knew that making a decision to be my own boss and blogging would generate feelings in my partner that are hurtful to me and make me question how much support I’ll actually have from him as I go through my ups and downs as a biz owner and artist.
    Right now I’m in a challenging space but I am choosing to believe all that is happening is for a reason and I’ll be stronger for it.

    Sending warm hugs your way and keep on Shining. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being You~
