I have to remind myself that I’m only 22. I don’t have to have it all figured out yet, and I’ve already accomplished more than I could’ve ever dreamed for myself at age 18. I often don’t take the time to be grateful for the hard work that’s gotten me to this point- I’m usually just on to the next thing; sending a message to myself that I won’t be “enough” UNLESS. You are always worthy of self appreciation. The way to your goals is not through relentless pushing but through time for reflection, prayer, meditation, creativity, connection, moving, breath. Couple these things with the path provided for you- you will be given what you can handle. Receive with open arms. We are not always good at being our own conductor- we don’t take the time or effort to listen to our own voice, the current needs of the world, or how we can fit the two together.

I’m in the middle of driving over gravel to get to smooth road. I’m in the middle of learning the language of the path I’ve chosen before getting lost in the words of the deeper woods. I’m screaming and shaking with the pleasure of transition, and I am not backing down from the what-ifs that live behind my ears. They’re loud and itchy and sharp, but I can wash them away if I choose (and so can you). I’m not good at practicing what I preach sometimes. The pit of apathy (lethargy, indifference, indecision) is a comfortable place for me, most days. I am physically and mentally exhausted from avoiding the first steps I know I need to take to loose myself in the bliss of deeper connection (although they’re enticing, they require sacrifice of the comfortable). This year will be hard. My intention is to “let go” of my own hold on myself, the order of my life (which is sometimes, or often, obsessive), and of people and material things that do not serve me. (I’ve had this intention for almost three years, and have never been able to take the first step. The. Process. Is. Slow.) I also want to connect more with those who will hold my hand, which is also not something I am good at. Thank you for taking the time to hold even a little space for me as I process through words, which is what I love♥️ I encourage you to push yourself this year, too, and maybe we’ll meet in the woods✌🏼 So much love and respect for you.

Why is jealousy so prevalent? Why is guilt so prevalent? Why is it so uncomfortable to tell strangers/friends “I love you” with sincerity? Why do we walk around holding our stomachs in- almost to the point that they are never seen the way in which they naturally expand with breath? Why is sex talk still so taboo? Why are responsible experiences with Psychedelics still so taboo? Why do we spend so much time living in small talk? Answers? More questions? Let’s talk. I Love you all (with sincerity 🦋).

Part 2: (read the previous post first♥️) I hold this belief close to my heart and consider this every day in alignment with my actions (and yes, what I choose to post). The best way to plant a seed in someone else’s mind is to inspire. To me, this means leading by my actions and what I choose to put out into the world. When I see somebody who is so deeply in touch with their true selves, their energy is nothing short of magical. Their conviction in the way that they live and in the choices that they make not only plants a seed in my mind, but pushes me to better myself. It is so exciting to think that we can spread our own joy for others to receive, cultivate, and share. We are symbiotic in this way; a network of organisms with the potential to spread nutrients. First we can learn from ourselves, and then we can learn from each other, just by witnessing. I am so humbled by so many women and men that I have followed over the past few years, and yes, this is a benefit of social media. I have been able to welcome new rivers of inspiration every day, and to connect with many of these individuals to seek guidance- to witness and learn about what they have to share. You have the right to inspire. You do, I do, they do. This is all I ever hope to pursue- I have realized that our greatest journey is to make people feel. Thank you for your following and for your self realizations. I learn new things from you every single day. 🥀 #reflection #selfcare #inspiration #autumn #selflove #vegan #movement #holistic #health #gratitude #strongwomen #newmoon

What if you just let go of everything that is not serving you? Not later- not as a dream for your future self- but today? Right now? What do you think would happen for you? #healing #lettinggo #intentions #intuition #mindfulness #magic #health #motivation #selflove #selfcare

REBIRTH AND TRANSITIONS: I posted this on my story a little while back and saved it as a reminder. Someone said something to me today that reminded me of when I was contemplating these things. She talked a bit about the difficulty and emotional uncertainty surrounding transitions in life, and I think this is an incredibly important topic, as it relates to all of us (and our entire Earth). It is important to stop and remember that growth is not always a beautiful process, nor is change. Growth and transitions in life are often glamorized, as if pushing past your comfort zone should feel like some sort of orgasmic experience. The truth is that growth, similar to birth, can be raw and painful. You can feel exposed, exhausted, uncertain and insecure. We are constantly different than who we were a year ago, a month ago, a minute ago. We are constantly learning and relearning ourselves and our environment. Life is not stagnant, and as products of life, neither are we. We are made to grow and feel naked and uncomfortable as we choose to take radical steps toward deep intimacy with ourselves, others and the Earth. We are equipped to push through the tension until we can look back and wrap our arms around ourselves and think: “Look at how far you’ve come, I am in awe of you”. The more we push past these initial walls, the easier it will be to build self-understanding. Rebirth is not glamorous. It is sweaty, heavy, and tight- as if we are shedding old mindsets and old skin. It does not align with societal check-lists and beliefs. It is miraculously your own. Embrace the messages you are giving yourself. 🌱I see you, and I support you. 🌱Nothing is more uncomfortable than stagnation. #rebirth #transitions #holistichealing #holistichealth #selflove #earth #beauty #depression #anxiety #support #iloveyou #healthyspirit #healthymind #motivation

There’s maple syrup in my coconut yogurt, roasted pumpkin seeds in my lap, and cinnamon dandelion root in my hot chocolate. I am so grateful I get to experience fall in Maine.♥️ #vegan #veganmeals #fall #fallrecipies #veganrecipes #autumn #newenglandfall #maine #gratitude #restday
