Welcome to Beyond the Cuff!
As I am writing this, I am flying 30,000 feet above the ground. Which coincidentally is where much of my writing and creating occurs. Perhaps it is because it is one of the few moments of forced downtime coupled with very little distraction. Flying used to be a time in which I was paralyzed with fear…hoping just to get through the flight without some level of a panic attack. It has now become a space in which all of the creativity is able to flow…not to mention the incredible view.
My days are filled with all things cuffs, texts, posts, conversations, meetings, marketing, designing, and the list goes on. Yet, there is so much more beyond the cuff. The myriad of things that go on behind the scenes. Things like laughter, learning hard lessons, more laughter, and then learning even harder lessons. One of my favorite parts of any movie is when they play bloopers at the end. It gives us a glimpse inside what it was like behind the veil of the final and perfected outcome. We are far from perfect at RC, but we thought it would be fun to have a place to let our hair down, if you will, and share with you some things “beyond the cuff.”
I have always been a firm believer that true joy comes when you land in the middle of your purpose -that thing you were created to do. Because once you land in that place, you start saying, “I get to do this” instead of “I have to do this.” It’s easy to believe that everything else that comes before that (an unfulfilling job, disappointments, closed doors, etc.) is just wasted time until you discover and start walking out your passion. Yet each and every chapter you go through is giving you the tools you need to arrive at your place of purpose.
Where you are right now is not necessarily your final destination.
It’s the path of your own story.
Even the hard lessons.
Especially the hard lessons!
You may be learning things in the menial that you are going to need for the mighty.
Every season has a reason and every chapter prepares you for what lies ahead!
Thank you for joining us on this journey.
