The permission you may need + wisdom for living


I've been a bit MIA for a few weeks...on a sort of inner sojourn, reflecting on how I truly want to grow, give, and celebrate in 2018. And what often occurs for me during this time is this...change. 


There are foundations I have built and philosophies I have shared...that need, well, space for growth.


I've been wavering between excitement and anxiousness as I dive into these new ideas and transitions my soul is calling me towards. 


If your heart resonates with being an artist or creator of any type, coupled with ambition and a deep calling to make a difference (and for the love of baby toes, to do it with meaning and depth), then you will understand this...


It's often a messy process both inside and out, but is it ever worth it. 


The truth is...


I will never be the one to send weekly or even monthly emails... just to send them. 


I will never be the one who looks exactly the same with the exactly same offerings, year after year.


I will never be the one who 'nails' her message, because when dealing with matters of the know it's ever expanding and evolving. 


But what I can always promise you is this...


Consistency with my heart. my intentions. and my willingness to share with you not just the marvelous parts, but also the messy parts. 


There was a time in my life and my business that I felt something was very wrong with me. I felt my voice wasn't worthy because I couldn't just make up my mind on one way. one direction. one path. one interest. one perspective. 


I know better now and I also know that those of us who are seekers...we need our S P A C E to do our work and to do it the way we feel called to do it. 


I share this with you for one reason and one reason give you permission. To tell you this...


You are not Crazy. You are crazy beautiful and for that, the world and your thoughts will push back. But this is your life. Your work in the world. Your time. {TWEET THIS}


Give yourself permission to take the space you need to grow. To listen to that call that feels like home but your thoughts tell you you'll be selfish or unsafe if you listen to it. Take your space so you can claim your sovereignty. Your souls mission. Your YOU. 


Today I close with not my words, but those of a man who knows what is to be a seeker. a trailblazer. a changemaker. One who knows that there are truly no 'rules' for living other than the ones that call to us from within.
