Something new is blooming...

This year I have found myself in an emotionally raw and painful period of transition. It has left my emotional body cracked wide open, and me trying to figure out how the pieces of me even fit together anymore.

And yet, once again, the universe steps in at the least likely moment whispering “there is a way through, but you have to let go of what you thought you knew.”

So I took those first brave steps towards a new, uncharted destination… and with every step forward, I am asked to let go of another thing that my life no longer needs….

Take a step. Are you ready to let go of this doubt?

Take a step. Are you ready to let go of how other people see you?

Take a step. Are you ready to choose for yourself who you are ready to become?

And, to be honest, I don’t even feel like I’m out of the woods from the crumbling of my emotional self. But maybe up ahead that sliver of light will be a meadow.That’s where I’m at right now. Trusting that these steps the universe is asking me to take, trusting that letting go of the pieces that don’t work and rebuilding myself from the new pieces I am finding in my life right now… it’s all a big leap of faith that this isn’t just me walking on a tight rope that’s about to snap and I’ll just fall right back into the quicksand.

But I know I have to keep going — because even if I don’t know where the destination will be, I certainly don’t want to stay where I am now, and I am not about to go backwards!

So I am taking trust by the hand and letting it guide me to What Comes Next. Because, honestly, I’m not really sure about any of this, but if I had to wait to be sure and ready before I took a step, well, I’d be stuck in a place I know I don’t want to stay.

Change is already starting to bloom, and very soon I’ll be ready to share more about this new direction I’m going.

I hope you’ll stick around for this next part of the journey — it already feels like a breath of a fresh air.
