My next memoir might be the most important work of my life.
I feel the weight of that truth more and more deeply as I begin living out the ending to this story.
I’ve been absolutely humbled by the lessons I’m learning and integrating this year. And I’ve been utterly blown away by what becomes possible when we’re willing to face ourselves, our shadows, and all the ways we’ve abandoned our truth over the years from fear and trauma.
Every single time I say I’ve never felt so free and at peace, I mean it.
Even if I just said it yesterday or last week.
Because that’s what happens when you do this work with total openness despite how painfully confronting and difficult it is. Eventually, it begins to accelerate. It begins to build on itself exponentially, and in ways you never thought possible from where you once stood. Eventually, the fear and terror fade away, and you find yourself more centered and steady in yourself. More free and at peace and willing to continue doing whatever it takes to be your most fully expressed self because it’s finally within reach.
