Welcome, to a place I hope you return to again and again in 2021 to find sanctuary, compassion, wisdom, nurturing, joy, fun, and belonging. In 2020 after covid hit, I dug into strengthening virtual community by investing my energy in my Facebook group Kick Assers . I used that group to gather my heart, practice compassion, share resources, celebrate victories, host book clubs, and virtual art creations. But most importantly, Kick Assers became the space I could bring my authenticity to, knowing it would be received with kindness and compassion by others during a time when human connection has never more challenging. My goal in creating this space here is to expand the experience of Kick Assers and give this community a new home. At Its core, All Hands In is kick ass energy. The work we do in soft skills development is to bring about a more compassionate, aware, and connected community where people feel safe being their authentic, vulnerable selves, while holding space for others who are doing the same. This is what kicking ass means to me. This is a space where we will be using the lens of soft skills to ask the question: What does kicking ass look like? And each month we will ask this question around a particular theme. The theme for January 2021 is: Delight. Each month your subscription will give you access to Monday and Friday memes based on the theme. Also, a book recommendation that ties into the theme, At least one video post on my thoughts on the theme, a monthly blog post, and general resources connecting soft skills to the monthly theme. You will also be a member of this inclusive community where you can share your thoughts, receive support, and feel seen, heard, and valued. Additional themes in the months ahead include: Sanctuary, healing, courage, and more... Creating is always challenging. We encounter so many moments of discomfort, uncertainty, and pure vulnerability, it can be really hard to find the courage to recover from set backs, criticism, or loss. This makes it super hard to reenter the arena after we've been knocked down. But if 2020 has shown me anything, it is that it becomes easier when have all our hands in, doing the work. I invite you to join me here in creating the compassionate community that will help us nurture, heal, and move into 2021 kicking ass. Happy New Year, Let's Get Ready To Do This.
