Pushing Past the Fear

Y'all, it has been a WEEK. A week filled with laughter and tears and emotions of all sorts as I shared my decision to take a step out of my 9-5 life here in California and travel in pursuit of what makes me shine.

I'm a planner, I'm a do-er, and I'm having to intentionally stop myself from thinking too far ahead into the future because. For the first time in my life, I have the chance to just be and to live with intent. I want to treasure this gift, to fully appreciate that I am choosing my own path towards happiness. But deep down, I have a confession -  the fact that I don't know exactly what that path looks like and where it will lead is mildly terrifying.

I came back to one of my favorite quotes today and it helped ease the fleeting moments of fear:

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

It is much less terrifying when I realize that I am not responsible for becoming anything other than my true self. Already this year I have had moments of clarity where I remember - this is who I am, this is what brings me joy, this is what I love to do, this is what makes me shine.

This journey is about continuing to find those moments and to use them to build a life that I LOVE. To surround myself with others who share that light, and to pass it on to those who don't.

Thank you for the support as I continue this wild adventure into the unknown.
