First Post in a Long While

Having a regular Newsletter and Blog is something I have wanted for a very long time, but I’ve never quite been able to make it happen.  

It’s a familiar story for me, and I imagine I am not alone. So often when a creative project feels important and meaningful, I freeze. It’s as if the very creative impulse that inspires me, also stops me in me tracks.

What if it’s too hard? What if I actually can’t do it? What if I give up… again? 

These thoughts are present now, even as I write this. And I have a feeling I’m going to need to get comfortable with them tagging along.

It seems to me though, that this is what growth and transformation actually is. Despite what spiritual pop culture tells us (which I have some major beef with that I hope to explore in future newsletters…) I find from my own experience and in working with clients that healing is not total liberation from that which causes suffering. 

Feelings of doubt, fear, and insecurity will always be with us. We are human, and to deny them would be to ignore a very real part of who we are. I think the true work is about learning to relate to these experiences in constructive and helpful ways, while continuing to move towards our values.

So I plan to cozy up to my old friends fear and doubt, while at the same time choosing to nourish the creative longings of my soul. I believe that this is where the magic happens — where slowly those familiar voices fade and are outshined by the fulfillment I feel from the process itself.

What’s more is that knowing you all are along for the ride with me and the possibility that these little shares may become a meaningful part of your life too, fuels me like few other things can. 

So again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for being here. 

My vision is that each month I allow my most genuine reflections, musings, questions, and struggles to inspire an honest exploration of a topic that feels personally relevant to my own journey and to that of my clients.

There is nothing I value more than creating spaces where people feel safe to fully embrace their humanness. I believe it is only when we feel all of it — the grace, the beauty, the messiness, and more — that we receive the gift experiencing our wholeness. 

My wish is that this little Newsletter and Blog becomes an invitation for all of us, myself included, to vulnerably open to the fullness of our lives, and that by doing so we create a deeper connection with ourselves, with the people we love, and with the Great Mystery of life.

With these intentions as my North Star, I have a feeling that those voice of fear and doubt don’t stand a chance. They already feel a little more faint and the hopefulness in my heart a little more bright, as I take this leap into the unknown. 

So here we go. Let’s see where this adventure takes us.
