After shutting down my Etsy shop and leaving the Indie Roller community of creative indie biz owners, I felt a little lost. I think as humans, we have an innate desire to belong and be a part of something perhaps, bigger than ourselves. Being a part of somewhere we can find like minded people and share our thoughts, feelings, ideas around any given subject. Be it hobbies, faith, intellectual, arts and culture, creativity and so on. As a highly sensitive person and a deep thinking introvert, I really thrive in an environment where I can share all my inner ramblings, spark discussion and just enjoy everyone's different points of view. A place to inspire and be inspired, excite and get excited but also find comfort and support for things I may be struggling with. People I can relate to that get what I'm rambling on about! It's one of the reasons I write this blog. I often have a lot of thoughts to process and putting it down on here is one of those outlets. When we find that place of connection within the right community, it can work wonders for our general well being and sense of self.
In my search for a new online community to replace the Indie Roller hole I suddenly found myself with, I stumbled across the Anti-Burnout Club run by Bex Spiller. It's centred mostly around mindfulness/wellness including things such as Yoga/Pilates, breath work/meditation but also central themes that come in the way of 'challenges' to sign up for. I joined for the 'Summer of self-confidence' challenge that started this year in 2021. It's a lovely online community that is full of like-minded people who want to grow and work on themselves using all of the lessons and techniques that are part of the content Bex produces.
