Today Was a Day of Stepping up Despite Everything

May 13, 2021

Today was a day.

A good day. A full, nonstop day. A challenging day. A creative day. Today was a day of stepping up despite feeling a lot of feelings about a lot of things.

I can feel that I’m entering a season where the most loving thing I can do for myself is to keep showing up and leaning into what’s next. Rest and self-care and all the things, of course. And showing up. Stepping forward. Giving more to the things that bring me joy and tug at my heart. Not letting the work that lights me up, the people I want to support, and the life I want to live fall to the wayside because things get stressful and distracting.

I’ve let too much and too many pull me away from where my heart is over the years, and I’m done with that.

The life I want matters.
What I feel called to create matters.
What I need and desire matters.
My joy matters.

So I keep leaning in and stepping up no matter what’s going on around me.

Because it matters.
