A Work In Progress

I’m rattled. I’m rattled by every single thing that’s going on in the world right now. I’m shaken! I’m confused! I’m lost! I’m angry! I feel like someone blind folded me, drove me to the middle of nowhere, walked me out into an empty field, spun me around a few times, and then left me there to figure out where I am and how to get home with no supplies.⁠

⁠I’m scared because everything that’s happened between March of 2020 and now has made me question EVERYTHING about myself. ⁠

⁠My morals, values, dreams, goals & purpose in life.⁠

⁠I’m all of these things, but I also feel like someone lit a fire under my ass. I’m invigorated, full of hope, full of drive & ambition to do more, to do better, and to be part of major change in this world.  ⁠

⁠I have an overwhelming urge to go back to school for civil or human rights. I want to be a part of something bigger. I want to a part of change that happens in the world, and not just here on some social media post (though I do believe that social media plays it’s part too). I want to be out in the real world, making real change! ⁠

⁠I want to get my hands dirty and devote my life to something more.⁠

⁠Right now I don’t know exactly what that is, or what direction I’m being lead in, or what any of what I just said even means, or if it makes sense. ⁠

⁠All I know for sure is that I’ve had enough of this broken machine and I want no part of it anymore. I want so desperately to be a part of this new world we’re building together, and no, I don’t think this is a just a phase this time. Call me naive, but I truly believe we are waking up and we’re literally building a new world. This will take time, a long time, but it’s not impossible!  ⁠

⁠Bear with me as I cocoon myself and grow into whatever next version of me is in the works 🦋⁠

⁠In the meantime I will continue to use this platform to hold space for healing & navigating the most important part of you…your soul & your mind, for this is where all great ideas, change, and revolutions are born. I’m here to hold space for you. I will continue to do this to the best of my ability until I figure out what’s next ❤️

7-Day Challenge – Daily Self Check-In – Day 5

Today is day 5 of the daily self check-in we’re doing this week & though I’m going to see this through until the end I would be remiss not to mention my deep sorrow and anger about what’s going on in the world right now. In fact it’s hard for me to talk about anything but. What happened in Georgia, the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, and what happened in Minneapolis, the murder of George Floyd is deplorable, and the sad thing is I could fill thousands of post with the names of fellow HUMANS who have been killed because of the color of their skin, or who they love, or what God they believe in. It’s disgusting that this is still happening in the year 2020, honestly it’s disgusting that it ever happened, but the fact that it’s still happening all these years after slavery, after the holocaust, WHY? 

WE HAVE TO DO BETTER PEOPLE! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON? WAKE UP! ENOUGH ALREADY!  ⁠

Today, I want you to stop what you’re doing right now, take a deep breath, and ask… what can I do for my fellow humans? How can I help? How can I reach out? How can I let them know I care, I hear them, I see them, I support them, and I have their back? What do they need from me? Who can I reach out to make real change in this world?

These are all question I too am asking myself and I plan to do extensive research about what role I can play in ending of this deep hatred today!

I know it’s cheesy, but all I can think of are these lyrics from the Pink Floyd song, “On the Turning Away:”

“Just a world that we all must share
It’s not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there’ll be
No more turning away?”

The turning away must end today!

I’ll leave you with this poem from the beloved Nelson Mandela, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

That’s it for today, be the change you wish to see in the world, I’ll see you tomorrow ❤️

For the entire month of May I am offering new clients the opportunity to pay what you can for virtual coaching sessions in meditation, mindfulness, breathwork & yoga. Now more than ever we need to make sure we’re taking care of ourselves both physically & mentally. I’d love to help you through this incredibly hard time.
