It’s always been amazing to me to feel how deeply we all really care about what others think or say about us.  People are often quick to say they don’t care what others think, and I am one of those.  But I do, and I have to make a conscious choice not to let it stop me from doing what lights me up. But, why do we allow this outside noise and distraction to keep us small?
◼️
I may appear to have it pretty figured out but I don’t.  I struggle to share myself, my true self, here on social media and sometimes even in person.  I’m extremely private and also introverted.  And since I’d always assumed I was an extrovert (I was saying yes to things I was a no to for a long time) I’ve been enjoying really owning the parts of me that need recovery and alone time to process and integrate.
◼️
With each step that I take into solidifying who I am and allowing it to adhere to my skin, it helps me share and grow.  Because who I am is my soul and we don’t always allow our souls to come to the surface.  People will judge and I believe it will always sting a bit because you can’t boundary yourself from the bad in an attempt to keep it all good - it’s never helped me feel better in the end.  Instead, it’s the feeling of the hurt and then coming out of it that heals me.  It’s the boundaries about who gets to share their feelings and thoughts about my life with me, that helps me.
◼️
With each step I take into who I am I learn more.  I trust myself more.  I trust my instincts more.  And I still get scared each time I set out to do something new, something I know has risk.  I just choose my soul.  I just choose to let myself be led and figure it out along the way.  I just choose to push forward no matter what or who is trying to push me back. .
Please never stop being you.  Never let anyone stop you from moving forward because of their fears and judgements.  Never let it spiral you into a fear storm that takes you away from what’s for you.
Instead, chose your soul.  Let it come to the surface.

lately I've been feeling the need to journal
.
i write everyday, but i don't actually journal about my feelings daily, however, i've been doing so much thinking that it's been one of the only ways for me to really get it out of my system and then be able to do something about it
.
it reminded me of how sometimes, we let self-care feel like + actually become a burden
.
because one of the reasons i don't sit down to write in my journal daily is that i'm doing other things. things I've deemed more important than journaling.  and even though i feel like i have pretty good self-care habits, there are times when i feel like i don't want to do anything 'extra'
.
so for me, one of the things that i'm looking to really incorporate going forward is more compassion toward my self-care
.
there is no limit to how much i can care for myself - in one day, or in one minute
.
self-care, for my health and well-being, for my happiness, for my presence with my family + friends, is not selfish
.
any activity that allows me to be more present, to feel more grounded, + gain more clarity is welcome every day
.
and though i may not be able to do this everyday, it's important that i release the boundaries that i have around my self-care routine, allowing it to be limitless
.
self-care can be in each moment + nothing is wrong with that
.
i am so ready to put my needs - the things i desire in my life - first.  i'm so ready to feel free to take care of myself however i'm being called to do so in that moment.
.
what will you do to take care of you today?

learning to love yourself
.
through the mistakes
through the times you fall short
when you feel alone
when you're actually alone
.
learning to forgive yourself
.
when it seems unforgivable
when no one sides with you
when you gave up 
through the lessons learned
.
remembering how far you've come
.
when others remember your shortcomings
when it seems impossible to keep going
in the midst of not knowing what's next
in the moment you want to call 'it' all off
.
there are so many ways you can stay focused on what you're not doing and what you haven't done.  those things are real. but they're not important.
.
take your lessons with you.
but more importantly take your strength, your perseverance, your goals, your will, your God given light with you.
.
let's do this.

this past Friday i had the amazing opportunity to read poems from my new book of poetry, Salve, at an intimate book party with a group of my friends.
.
there was laughter, some tears, but it was such an absolutely amazing experience.
.
one of the things that's been present for me, as today marks a full month since i released Salve, is that no matter how ready you are to bring your project into the world, there is still a large piece of vulnerability + fear that comes with putting your work into the world.
.
while reading my poems + looking into the eyes of the people i was reading to, as i shared some of the stories behind my poems, i began to really feel how intimate of an experience this was + becoming fully present to why so many amazing people will never release their beautiful work.
.
because no matter how talented you are, no matter how confident you are, it's hard.  it's hard to put yourself out there - even in front of your loved ones.
.
and so, if you are someone thinking of birthing something - a book, a business, anything - know that the feelings of fear, of vulnerability, they may not be the main feelings - because there is excitement + joy, but those feelings matter, they're real, they deserve a home - and by speaking of them, they can pass.
