You may have noticed at the end of last week some things changed… thank you for still being here with me.
I recently found myself waiting.
Waiting for the right time.
Waiting for the right words.Waiting for a new year.
But every single day is the first day of a new year.
So Happy New Year!
Recently you may have found yourself in a position of many of my followers have: Not getting the content you signed up for. I understand your frustration- though the information will always be here that you may need or want to reread- I decided over the past few years to write less about Addie.
While dwarfism is a large part of our life (duh!)- Addie is growing into a strong, powerful, beautiful person. No longer the baby being spoken for, her words hold her own message. Her story is not mine to tell.
What’s this mean? This means SO MANY THINGS and I am still navigating through it, but for the most part- it means a rebrand.
Who am I?
I am Chelley! HI!
I love to help people. I love to connect people. I love knowing that everyone knows they are important. Why? BECAUSE IT’S TRUE! We are all important. Strengths, weaknesses- they’re the same to those who see your worth.
That’s The Worth Way. It started with my father, Mark Worth. He loved people. To talk to and learn about them. To make them feel more than accepted, but a part of the family. To blur the lines of business and friends, because what’s the point of spending so much time with people at work when we could be spending that time with our beloveds?
Conundrum? MONEY! It makes the world go ‘round.
So work. With friends and family. Those you create. Not everyone in your family will be your favorite, and new members will join in and you may not know everyone… but you will care for them. Because that’s family. That’s humanity. That’s The Worth Way.
And that’s the brand. My brand.
A is For Adelaide is rolling out as The Worth Way.
My website is in the works… that’s going to take me some time, but ME. Who I am… that’s NOW. I have waited too long to be me. To let go of mommy blogger and become myself. The woman who will run to the ends of the earth for clients (did you know I’m a social media manager with an amazing partner in graphic design and digital media?!) and work through the night for deadlines. I love teaching 5am cycling classes and mentoring teen girls in kickboxing and surviving high school. I am a substitute teacher because being a part of the future right now is an honor. I am a Beachbody coach because I believe in their products and their dedication to releasing new, innovative programs. I’m a social media influencer, and if you don’t know exactly what that means here’s what it means to me: I approached brands or brands approach me that I both use and support, and I talk about them. If I’m being paid for product or product was given to me I’ll note that, but many times I just love the things I use. I’m not frugal per-se, but I don’t have a large disposable income, and what I use whether it be product, clothes, or resources, I’d like to think I choose well and I want to share about them. I am a woman. I love to cook and craft with my children. I am an avid lover of Philadelphia sports. I write poetry- from the depths of the marrow in my bones.
I will still be parenting and love. Mental health and recipes. There will be advocacy work and a continued path towards equity > equality. But there will also be a focus on my amazing clients and their work. All the journeys I take and the amazing work in my Massachusetts community.
I am rebranding to honor my father. To continue his message that we are all important. To share The Worth Way. To let go of 35 years of who am I? And finally answer: Her.
