Big Wide World

Kat Molesworth filled with joy

Six years ago I managed to shrink my world. Postnatal depression had me frequently considering not being here and avoiding contact with all but a limited number of friends.

I still find it hard to believe that I hid away from the world but as someone who feels emotion like a searing fire in my veins I was overwhelmed by every experience. While I still, (always have, always will), feel everything deeply it’s no longer something I struggle with.

The vulnerability I feel when I travel a new path sometimes pulls me back to those days. There are moments when I wonder if I can, or if I should, take a leap.

Frosty Morning

The difference now is that I have the courage to say yes to experiences; knowing that whatever comes my way is going to be woven into the story of my life one way or the other.

Tomorrow I’m headed off to Salt Lake City to dive head first into Alt Summit. I’m an enthusiast when it comes to blog conferences (as you may have guessed) and hearing different perspectives on our online landscape. I was lucky enough to be given a ticket and booked a flight within hours of finding out. I’m ready to make a dozen new friends and connect with companies I’ve only met over email.

So with butterflies in my tummy I am awaiting the cab at an unspeakable hour and the confinement of the flight because at the other end my world is about to expand.
