Welcome to my blog. You are an honored guest in my safe haven. This is where I do my thing. You’ll find a lot of different things here. I can tell you what you won’t find here – you won’t find any kind of perfection or any attempts towards perfection. This site is not “Insta perfect” or “IG ready.” It’s raw, it’s real, it’s honest. When you visit I hope you have moments where you think, “Wow, I didn’t know anyone else was struggling with that” or “I didn’t know anyone else had thoughts like that” or “I didn’t know that it was okay to feel like that” or “I didn’t know it was okay to express those thoughts and feelings.” Here I welcome vulnerability. Here I encourage vulnerability. Be vulnerable here with me.
Some days you might feel like a garbage human being, or as if you cannot do anything right, or as if you don’t have any talent, or as if you never should have tried this or that. I want you to be able to feel those feelings and honor them even though the world begs you to hide them. That’s why I write about the beautiful things and the ugly things here. This is to be human. The ups and the downs. This is to be human. Be human with me here.
Consider this blog your permission slip from the principal.
I am the principal and this is your permission slip.
Here on this blog you have permission to:
Feel your feelings
Heal from trauma
Revel in wonder
Choose that which brings you life
and Reject that which does not
Tell the truth
Share your highs and lows
Be true to yourself
I’m here each week to tell you that I see you and I hear you. I’m here to encourage you to feel, and to think, and to say, and to live in a way that allows you to live to your full potential as a human being. Remember: You are not here on this earth to pay bills and die. You are here to co-create your life. You are here to actively participate in this co-creation. This is your God-given right as a created being. I hope you laugh with me, cry with me, and feel every other emotion in between right there alongside me. Not sure where to start on the blog? Start with this letter that I wrote to my dear friend Fear. It’s a favorite. Now let’s get busy living.
With love and gratitude,
