Being used to getting by...

Because even when we know we could be doing better for ourselves than we are, sometimes we are just so used to getting by that the idea of it being anything other way may cross our minds, but being used to it is what we know... and as creatures of habit, we love what we know and what we know can be hard to let go of.

Life offline...

More so, find a way that feels good to live into...you know...being here (on social) while not having it take a way from being really here (in my moments) Because allowing it to rob me of my present moment is what I think stings the most.It's weird and scary and says a lot about the stories I've accepted to be true. Which now becomes an invitation to vet that truth and see what's stand after it's been challenged.

What nature is teaching me…

There are no rules…

Overflowing with gratitude for the consistent nudges I get from my Soul. Reminding me that it’s never too late to toss out the rules we were handed and the ones we've picked up along the way. What once was good for you, doesn't guarantee to always be best for you

Inside the messy middles

Because we are all learning and unlearning with every single step. Some wounds deeper than others but all far from perfect. Inside the messy middles where the answers aren't clear, let's take a moment to honor the chance to be here.
