Hi. I’m Heidi.
I assume you’ve landed here because you want to know if I’m worth your time. I think I am. But, hey, what do I know?
I’ll tell you what I know.
I know what it’s like to walk into a room full of strangers and not be afraid.
I know what it’s like to both embrace routine and, at the same time, feel its choking grip around my neck.
I know what it’s like to transition from being an athlete into someone who merely watches from the sideline. I’ll let you in on a little secret: It’s not half bad.
I know how it feels to achieve success as a student and then feel somewhat lost as an adult. I graduated summa cum laude from college and landed a job at a reputable company. Then I nearly landed myself in a straight jacket trying, for the next 14 years, to figure out how I fit in that place.
I know I made my parents proud. I’m happy to say I still do.
I know I am fueled by creative, collaborative types – so it’s only fair that I try to be that way for others.
I know my husband and I have three completely unique and individually amazing kids. They have this crazy way of making life seem as meaningful and memorable as it should be.
I know it is hard for me to leave little pieces of my heart behind as I carry out my day. But some days, I know it’s in everyone’s best interest to create space.
I know I cannot expect my kids to carve out their own path in life if I’m carrying them.
I know what it’s like to start off writing for all the right reasons and then receive confirmation that people value what you do.
I know how elated I feel when I impact someone. I also know how it feels to feel like I’m affecting nothing.
I know I can make you laugh…think…care.
I know there’s a special place in the blogosphere for people who like people like me.
