My life has taken a few unexpected turns over the past two years. I have grown. I have changed. It didn’t happen overnight and most people barely noticed at first. But I noticed. I felt the growing pains and wrestled them at night. I fought with great resistance and rebellion. But, we all know that my defeat was inevitable. And, as busy as I kept myself with life, as desperately as I resisted the nudges from my heart, I finally had to surrender.
This is me. This is my journey.
I have found that when you allow yourself to become vulnerable, to show not only the world, but yourself, the person that you truly are. To acknowledge and confront your wildest dreams, your darkest demons and the raw, imperfect soul that hides within. Then, God (the universe, or whatever you choose to call it) will conspire, align and enlighten your journey with confirmation that you are heading in the right direction. Your story comes alive, with people and places that set your heart on fire. A new world will open up, right there in front of your eyes. Even the most familiar of places lights up with new and unexpected beauty. And, if you are fortunate enough, you are blessed with people who see and appreciate and experience these stories with you.
