There's no prize for shame, self-abandonment, stress, or strife. Somewhere along the way, we lost sight of our call to freedom and found righteous validation in our invisible prisons. I've spent most of my life codependent, desperate for affection, and playing small. A couple years ago, I woke up to my truth (which felt like the destination, but was only the first step down a better road), and now I'm chasing the freedom I believe is mine. Most days, that looks like writing fiction, slinging essential oils, learning from community, and sharing my thoughts on the journey. If you're looking for someone who has it figured out, I'm not her. But if you're seeking honesty, inspiration, emotions, and real-life, you're in the right place.
