Vulnerability, it’s your superpower.

vul·ner·a·ble [vuhl-ner-uh-buhl] adjective 1. capable of or susceptible to being wounded or hurt, as by a weapon: a vulnerable part of the body. 2. open to moral attack, criticism, temptation. This post has been floating around in my head all night. I have been feeling vulnerable lately. There are so many things coming together and with that, old wounds have been ripped open and are now truly healing. I have dealt with a lot in the last few months and I feel like I’ve been very strong throughout my challenges. Which is funny as I’ve never thought of myself as a strong person. Fragile, delicate, easily broken — those are things I could identify with. However, the last few months I have been so strong for myself, I became someone I could rely on to make myself feel better. What an amazing gift that is. Today I don’t feel very…

I Believe In You (I Really Do)

I’ve been hiding out the last few days under a little rock called self-criticism and insecurity. When I’m under this rock it doesn’t feel so little. I feel this heavy weight pressing down on me. I’ve been struggling lately on what to write about. I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head but they just won’t translate to paper. Or the internet, as it were. So, what was stopping me from sitting here and writing all of the thoughts I want to share with the world? That pesky feeling of not being good enough. Instead of trying to relentlessly push past it I decided to write about it. All emotions in life are meant to be felt and experienced, some of them we just shouldn’t hold on to for too long. I used to think that if you refused to acknowledge those “bad” emotions then they would just…

I Wish to Choose Authenticity

It is Wishcasting Wednesday and this week’s prompt is “What Do You Wish To Choose?” I choose to be authentic. Authenticity seems to be my word for the month. It is honestly something that I am still trying to grasp the full meaning of what it means to me. I need to figure out what is authentically “me”. I didn’t realize that it would be so hard to figure out who I want to be and what I want, but I am making progress on the journey. Over the last two years, I have been on a path to self-discovery and sometimes it feels like I’ve barely begun to take the first steps. I feel like I still have so much to discover about myself. At times I wonder why I bother trying to change myself. After all, one would think that the best way to be authentic would be to…

Happy Birthday To Me

Today is my birthday and what a wonderful one it has been so far. All of the things I have been thankful for have just been reinforced tenfold. I have been so blessed with well wishes and love. I am completely astounded by the friendships in my life. (Love you friends!) The greatest gift I have received this year is knowing without a doubt that I am known. I am heard. I am loved. This is the first birthday that I can recall actually feeling older. I know it’s all in my head, but I feel like I’m standing on the edge of a precipice to something great. Right now everything that I want is possible with just a little bit of help from the Universe. I can do this, I can be great, I can be a shining light. I’m sure I made a New Years Resolution at the beginning of the year,…
