Growing Pains + Growing Gains

This time last year I was journaling about my yearning for community. I was new on my journey home to myself and I felt isolated. I wanted more, I wanted to make a difference, I wanted to grow and heal from my past, I wanted to have purpose and feel fulfilled, I wanted to build more confidence and love for myself, I wanted to speak my truth and help others do the same, I wanted to explore spirituality without religion and deepen my connection to self and Source.

Today, I write that short recap of goals with a little smile on my face, because I feel like I’ve called all of those things into my life in better ways than I even knew possible at the time when I wrote it.

In 2020 I finished coaching school and found my people. I found family from all across the world that want me to succeed and win. I have developed and began cultivating new skills, new passions, new talents, new friends, and I’ve gotten cozier at home with myself than I ever have been before. I began apprenticing at a tattoo shop that feels like home with a unique vibe that can’t be found anywhere else. I weave magick into my daily life and into my work every day. I feel good about the journey. It’s been easy, it’s been hard, it’s been beautiful, and it’s been ugly. Such is the journey. Today I face things head on with more fire than I even knew was burning within me. I have done things that scared me all year long and I didn’t die from facing any of those fears; from owning my own truth like never before, to standing my ground and learning how to express anger, forgiveness, and everything in between.

I’m thankful for 2020. I’m thankful for every mentor that has truly changed my life this year; Olivia Seline, Julie Parker, Dawn Thompson, Jess Wagner, Lauren Kester, Lizzy Jeff, and Erica Rose. So many amazing women have touched my life this year. I’m so thankful for you.

Here’s to 2021, nothing but growing pains and growing gains!
