My life is very different these days.
I spent years as a very lost and unhappy person. Sometimes when I pause to look at where I am now, I’m amazed at the contrast, and grateful for where I’ve ended up.
I’m happier… like, full on want to laugh and cry about how amazing my life is, and how grateful I am to be living it. Even on the crappy days and when things are stressful, I am so happy. Life is good. Really, really good.
I’m home… I never, ever thought I would call Colorado home. Coloradans raise their eyebrows at that statement, but it’s true. In fact, I was planning to leave this summer, hence the bucket list. When I lived here before, I could take it or leave it, but I’ve fallen madly in love with the mountains and all the amazing people that live here. For now, it’s home. And it feels good to be home.
I’m more alive… there are so many reasons why I live life more fully these days, and I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I’m more at home in myself. I know who I am and I show up fully, which means I’ve attracted some pretty phenomenal people, opportunities, and experiences into my life. And so I do a ton of fun stuff. Just these last couple weeks I played laser tag, learned guitar with friend, went rock climbing and bouldering, got out on a trail run with two friends, had a pizza making party with a great group of people, saw an improv show a friend performed in, went mountain driving, laughed outside in the sunshine on the grass with a bloody mary and a favorite friend, and taught my second live workshop.
I’m healthier… I’ve started getting acupuncture for some health issues, am officially a runner (because running with a broken toe is kind of hard core runner stuff), I started rock climbing, and I eat healthier than I ever have before. I’m also surrounded by amazing friends, coaches, mentors, and guides, who help me grow personally and spiritually in ways that are making me feel so much more vibrant and alive from the inside out. And Acupressure… I can’t say enough about it. I have healed and cleared so much “stuff”, it’s the best tool I have.
Every single day I wake up incredibly grateful for my life.
I’ve worked really, really hard since I was 14. From the moment I could work, I did… and I worked my ass off. I graduated high school early working full time, taking my junior year at school, and doing my senior year via correspondence. I went to college and took a full load while working overtime and freelancing. I started multiple businesses over the years while working full time.
But now? I’ve settled into a space where I live so much more of my life, alongside hustling and building this business of mine. It’s an awesome spot to be in.
