Transformation isn’t Pretty or Easy or Simple—but F*ck, is it Worth It.

Been down

Been sideways

Been crying so hard I got headaches
Been laughing so hard I got stomachaches

Been running around the Spanish desert howling at the moon with an array of eccentric characters

Been hiding under my sheets alone
Been lost
Been found

Been fighting with the mirror
Been taking 10 steps back and giant leaps forward
Been hurting, confused, and conflicted 

Been healing and finding a reason to believe I belong
Been unconditionally loved and accepted
Been building a castle on a solid foundation of authenticity and love that cannot be kicked over 

Been relentlessly auditing my circle
Been doing everything I can for the woman I am about to become

Because I know I am about to land smack bang in the middle of my purpose. 

Transformation isn’t easy. 

But f*ck me
It is worth it. 

It is in our peril we find ourselves
And if you don’t get extremely lost and
Taken off your path
You will never be able to feel this level of found.

This is where life really begins to unlock.
