And I have for years. It’s been a (maybe not-so) secret of mine for decades. It’s easy to hide when you work from a home office. With limited human contact and the outside world. At home I have the time to consider and craft formidable replies. Via email. As not only do I rarely meet my clients in person, we rarely speak on the phone.
I work when I’m high. Cook and clean when I’m high. I do everything high. I built this site when I was high! So, it’s likely – if I’ve worked for you in the past, I did it high . Those 17 years of printing the magazines? Dealing with dozens of clients, managing those deadlines? Yup… High! 🙌 I’m high right now. It’s 3:45pm and I just had my first joint. How do I feel? Inspired. 💡Inspired to write this (very long overdue) truth. Energized. ⚡I had been glued in one position since 9:00am working in Dreamweaver designing an email template. Brave. 🦁I’m discovering my purpose. And part of the process is authenticity.
A good part of the way I make my living and spend my time is on social media. I have several profiles across the web, most which have had very little time – in favor of client pages. In fact, it has been a very long time since I have worked on “digital me” and how I present to the world.
My profiles reveal a scattered mess of inconsistency. Ironic because this is one of the very services I offer my clients. And when clients research me, and they DO research me – it ain’t pretty.
I’ve been stressing on this the past few weeks. I wasn’t sure where to start. How I wanted to ‘craft myself’ – this time. The good news is, I am MAKING the time. I have dedicated the month of December to cleaning up my online act. For those who research me, but more importantly for me. To help me feel organized. To help me focus. To help me discover my purpose.
At 3:46pm I had an epiphany moment. Epiphany – “suddenly struck with a life-changing realization which changes the rest of the story“. Great word – I don’t even “think” in those words when I’m not high! Nor do I have epiphanies. Today’s epiphany moment was brought to you by home-grown Green Crack. A sativa dominant strain causing sharp energy and focus. Two LARGE thumbs-up. 👍👍
I realized the fastest – most efficient way between A-B was also the most authentic way! Hey… I know! Why don’t I just be ME! 🤔And I liked it. I liked it very very much. 🏆I needn’t “craft” myself, I must simply BE myself. ☺And quickly, the task became not only far more simple, but one I look forward to.
I have always advised my clients when they struggled to create online content to write about something they love. To be authentic. Follow their passions and then share it. You might be a real estate agent who happens to be the best fly fisherman south of John’s Cove. Write about THAT. The reno’s you’re working on. Your hobbies. Write about what inspires you and it’s likely your readers will enjoy it as much as you do. This entire site was born out of inspiration. A venue for me to (secretly via pseudonym) express my love and passion for cannabis.
Moments like these are some of the the reasons I smoke weed. So if I’ve built something beautiful for you, had a great idea or inspired you…. High! 🙌 Why am I sharing this? Because I am Supernova Media. I am Why Nova Scotia, I am Lifestlye 420 and I am Nancy Bain. I choose to no longer be one without the other. There’s a marriage coming, and you’re all invited! 😎
For those of you who struggle with people who use cannabis, that’s okay. I’m not for everyone. But it may please you to know that as a medical cannabis patient I have traded the daily use of prescribed anxiety and sleeping medication for a very simple plant I can grow in my back yard. Keep blazing, stay amazing! 😗💨
