I write because I have a story to tell.
A write because it’s scary and vulnerable but very healing for me.
I write because words are powerful, And when I’m open to expressing them with raw and honest emotion and clear intentention, it can be a game changer.
I write because I want to change and grow, I want to understand why I am the way that I am and it feels really good to be honest.
I want to talk about the shit that no one else has the courage to say out loud.
I don’t want to feel alone anymore and I want to help others.
I want to feel real connection, and I want to have conversations that feel expansive. I want to talk about what’s going good in my life and in other peoples lives. I want to hold space for the things that don’t feel good.
I want to change the neural pathways in my brain that tell me that I’m not good enough, and never going to amount to anything.
Why can’t I?
Why is it so scary to try something new?
I’m most likely not going to die if I fail.
When I decided to drive out west three years ago, there was literally a handful of people that supported my decision.
Most people thought I was crazy actually.
I didn’t even know why I needed to come out here.
There was this invisible pull, And I had gone through so much pain that the only thing I could do was follow my intuition.
And I did, and it was lonely and it was heartbreaking and it was fucking beautiful.
I failed big time.
I felt sorry for myself.
I second-guessed myself and they failed some more.
Some days I didn’t even get out of bed.
One thing that I was always doing though was writing, and even in the darkest times, I was moving forward even if it was the smallest steps.
Learning Reiki was huge for me. And meeting my teacher and now dear friend Geneva Robins was a life changer.
I started to pick myself back up.
I started to believe that I could actually succeed on my own.
I remember Geneva telling me, ” If you want to be a writer just write. Share what you have inside,
people need to hear it.”
Sharing my thoughts on my blog have helped me to shine light on things that I’ve held inside for years.
I write because sometimes I surprise the hell out of myself.
I want to keep doing that.
