Unsolicited.

2020 March 24

Change has been brewing for a very long time over here. Not just in this actual virtual space, but in my heart and my mind. I would dance around it and then shy away. I would tip toe into it and then leap in the other direction. I would mentally invite it in and then go back where I came from and sit there…quietly.

And then the world changed. Not quite overnight, but close. It was a slow indication that change – serious change – was coming for all of us. And at first, my mind and my reality didn’t want to accept it. Didn’t want to give in. Until it was forced to.

This world of ours. Today’s world, in March of 2020, is unlike any we have known. Any of us. For some it is harder to breathe. Physically. For some it is stressful. For some it is scary. For some it is maddening. For some it is lonely. And then, for a select few, it is empowering. I would be lying if I said I was sitting full-time in the empowered camp. It’s like my dance with change that I mentioned above. I see the empowered, I listen to them, I take notes from them…but a lot of the time, I ignore them and go back to my safety zone. One of fear, stress and anxiety. It’s so easy here. So comfortable.

But today, I am taking a step out of that box.

I want to introduce you to the next chapter of What Would Gwyneth Do. My next creative chapter. Unsolicited. It is a newsletter that will come to your inbox. Once a week. Sometimes maybe more. Sometimes maybe less. It will be more direct, less filtered and hopefully always worth the read. It will share thoughts and real talk from the heart, a sprinkling of advice and direction for those who may want it, and a recommendation or two for people, products and things that I think you may want to know about. Really know about.

It will be written without filter. Without fear. And without any tip toeing. And I hope, I truly do, that it evokes some change. Not just in me, but perhaps in you. How you see your every day life — the old version and the new one we are all exploring together — how you look at parenting and working motherhood and marriage and personal style and friendships and creating a life that you can enjoy to its fullest extent. For the big things and the small. The easy and the uncomfortable. The days you want to dance with the empowered and the days you want to hide away with the scared.

This is a new box.

I hope you will join me – sign up here. And I will see you there.

In the meantime, stay well. x
