Sitting, pondering trying to nail down the exact moment that delivered me here. Truth be told it was not one moment but all- a cumulative acquiring of experiences and growth and set backs and pain and joy. But a lot of pain. Pain that came at me from events beyond my control and tore through my soul like a hollow point bullet shot at point blank range.
Loss and hardship that knocked me right on my ass like a rogue wave pulling my whole life into the under-toe and lost at sea.
As I began to come out of the immediate hurt and chaos I examined my existence and decided I was not where I wanted to be. I was not doing what I wanted to do and I was allowing outside influences to determine what my life and happiness should look like.
So I decided- no more. I am no longer living by anyone else’s standards but my own. I am no longer comparing myself to others. I am no longer buying into the lie and the shaming that I am not enough.
Now on this journey to reinventing me, pursuing my dreams (ahem), saying fuck fear and living in perfectly imperfect present moments, soaking in all life has to offer me.
Join me on my adventure of finding and becoming my authentic self.
