Today is a monumental day. A day that will forever divide my life in half… before today and after today. Because today, everything changes.
Today I’m introducing you to my new home online. A place I’ve been quietly creating and curating for the last few months. Aside from my husband, my accountability buddy and my mentors, this is the first time I’m sharing this project with anyone.
And it’s finally time to let it out into the world.
This project is something that’s been stirring around in me my entire life. I couldn’t have put it into words back then, because it was just a feeling. A notion. A nudge from inside that wasn’t clear enough yet to take action on.
Until a year ago when it finally came to me. It was like a lightning bolt struck my soul and unlocked what had been buried and burning and growing inside me, gaining clarity and vision and passion and purpose as it spun around for years in my subconscious mind, just waiting until the day it was finally ready to be unleashed.
I’ve dreamed of doing this for a decade-plus and it’s finally happening, and not all how I used to imagine it being. But that’s what makes life and the universe and manifestation so beautiful–you just ask for what you want, you put it out there and you trust.
What came through for this project is by far better than anything I could have imagined back in college when I first got the inkling about what I really wanted to do with my life.
And it scared me a little bit. So I hid from it and pushed it away and avoided it for almost a year, until this summer came and I got the message that it’s now time.
It’s now time to step into the life I really want. The life I’ve always been craving and a life that merges all of my passions and the things I love to do into one.
A playland for a multi-passionate writer and entrepreneur and creator who could never, ever, ever choose just one thing to be. I want to be everything and I want to be everything now.
And this summer I realized, I could just choose it. I could choose to be and to live the life I really wanted. It was a choice.
Don’t get me wrong here, I love the work I do right now. It’s been an inspiring, fulfilling and incredible journey from where I started. But it’s time for me to go further.
It’s time for me to push my limits and play a bigger game. This is not only a whole new level, it’s a whole other planet from the world I currently inhabit.
And I’m so fucking ready!!!
For those of you who know me and have known me, this project isn’t gonna be a big surprise to you. In fact, you’ll probably see it and go, “yep. That’s exactly what Jen is meant to be doing.”
Because it’s so very me.
It feels like me. It feels like exactly who I am and who I’ve always been.
The truth is, I’ve only really allowed you to see one side of who I am, the writer and author side. The coach, the teacher.
But this is a whole other thing.
I used to feel like an octopus that had most of its legs tied, so only a few of them were working. And that was fine, for awhile, but those legs eventually got tired.
Tired of not feeling fully expressed. Tired of not spending time doing the things they really wanted to be doing. Tired of only living at less than half-capacity.
I am capable of so much more.
And I want so much more. I’ve wanted it for a ridiculously long time, but I kept telling myself I couldn’t have it because I “didn’t go the traditional route” and I “wasn’t a professional at it.”
So I stopped myself from pursuing it. I stopped myself from spending time doing that stuff because I didn’t feel qualified to do it.
But here’s the thing… when you love to do something and you’re passionate about it and you’re good at it and you’ve done it a lot and you’ve helped other people do it, doesn’t that make you qualified? Doesn’t that mean you’ve done the leg-work?
Even if you didn’t technically study it in school or you don’t have a $100K-plus piece of paper that has some college’s name and a major written on it.
And that’s what I finally realized.
You didn’t have to be an on-paper professional at something to allow yourself to spend time doing it or to share it with others. I could just allow myself to be who I really am and share with the world all the things I love that make me ME.
So that’s exactly what I’m doing. That’s exactly what this site is all about.
A project that has been in the works for 34 years and probably even before that. The project I came here to do… to fully live life as Jennifer Blanchard and inspire, motivate, educate and empower the multi-passionate writers of the world to fully live life as who they really are.
May I introduce to you, from the deepest parts of my heart and soul…
Dream Life Or Bust.
A collection of all the things that make up who I am and what I want to spend my life doing and being. This is my gift to the world and especially to all the dreamers and big-thinkers out there who know they were born for more and aren’t willing to accept anything less than their dream lives.
Because there is only Plan A.
Dream life or bust,
P.S. Is it time for YOU to do everything you dream of? Here’s how to pull it all off…
