Welcome to my Corner of the Internet!Apr 17, 2023
Hi and welcome to my corner of the internet. I feel like this blog has been brewing for some time, but perhaps I didn’t have the courage to put it all out there. If you are reading this, I am guessing you found me because of our connection through physical therapy, women’s health or business ownership. I certainly wear many hats and manage to do “all the things,” for better or worse. If you don’t already know much about me, I am a 47 year old wife and mom of 2 teenagers (as of April 2023), I founded Catalyst Physical Therapy nearly 6 years ago, and I run an online business. I also serve as a teacher and mentor in both the clinical and entrepreneurial spaces.
My purpose is to help women elevate themselves in life.
I want to see women show up and show up big. I want to be not only an example but also a guide for others to forge their own path. And I’ve decided to use this space to let it all out, unapologetically. I want to share what’s on my mind, and the things that keep me up at night. What makes me laugh, what makes me cry and what makes me say, “hmm…” I spend nearly every day with women from all backgrounds and life experiences. When I’m not at work or with friends, I’m helping my children navigate life in this less than perfect world. You can imagine a lot of things come up each day. I’ve decided that it’s no longer time to hold back. I want to share because if I’m thinking about these things, you likely are as well. And this opens space to have meaningful conversations and discussions about where we are headed in life, as professionals who also are raising children.
One thing you can be sure of is that I will show up here as the whole, unfiltered me. You will not see a watered down or sugar coated version of my reality. And if that’s not for you that’s ok! One thing I hear frequently from others is that I have all my sh**t together, and there’s no way they could do half the things I do. Well, the reality is what I put out there for the world to see is often the professional, polished version of Blair, which is only one small piece of who I actually am. This blog will be giving it all to you because I’m really no different than anyone else. I am just a professional and entrepreneur trying to find some version of work - life balance that at this point I’m starting to believe is a made up fairy tale. I struggle often, I am far from perfect and put together and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time to expose some of my vulnerabilities, and just share what’s on my mind.
If you choose to keep reading, you’ll experience deep thoughts, big laughs and bigger tears. And while you may not agree with all of it or like everything I say, I promise you will learn something new most of the time. I hope this can become a community where we can share freely and openly, without judgment, even when we don’t completely agree. Because that’s how we all learn. And when we can be open minded and vulnerable, and hear what others say, that’s when we start to level up.
So, I invite you to stick around. Check out what’s coming. Comment, send me a message, let’s get to know each other better and learn a thing or two from each other. Stay tuned…
