Beautiful. 🀍 Thank you for modeling a different, meaningful way to engage away from social media that honors you. I am so looking forward to this.

Your work is refreshing, inspiring, and resonant. I only recently discovered your offerings through the Substack of Carissa Potter, and the timeliness of your message on belonging struck a chord. Looking forward to reading more of your stories in 2022 and beyond.

Thank you Lisa. This is a powerful statement of presence in a world that encourages absence (in so many different physical and mental ways).

Thank you for taking the courage to step up for the great value of your content. This gives me hope and joy, as a writer. I support you.

From Italy, with love

Thank you for modelling this, Lisa. Creatives need to be compensated for their work. Yours is beautiful, and I'm grateful that you've shared it freely for so long, and that you're honouring yourself and showing up in a new way.

Lisa, I'm so so grateful for your presence ever since I got to know of you on instagram. Your words (through instagram, newsletter, podcasts) have been life-changing for me in my personal healing journey and professionally as someone who's on the way to becoming a social worker. Thank you for all that you do and I'm happy to support you on this platform ❀🌹

Love from Singapore.

I’m so thrilled to find a platform outside of Instagram where I can not only read your beautiful words, but perhaps even start sharing my own again. I had deleted Instagram a while ago and whilst I mostly revel in the quiet space away from the constant stimulation of the app, I miss reading words and connecting with work such as your own. I can’t wait to keep up with you here on Substack. Your decision to change the narrative for yourself of being a writer in this social media age is inspiring. Thank you 🧑

I'm so excited for this! Your writings really nurture and ignite something inside me that I'm only catching glimpses of on my own journey of healing and rediscovery of myself, and I'm so excited to hear more from you and discover more in me. Thank you!
