In this phase in my life, I’m connecting my past, present, future selves, taking time to self-preserve and to understand what nurtures me, encourages my growth, and brings me a sense of safety.

No one gives you a handbook on how to evolve — to expand into the person you’re meant to become. It’s something we are meant to figure out on our own.

These rebirths are filled with lessons and guides, and it’s through following our hearts and intuition that we keep putting one step in front of another.

I may not know much about what’s ahead, but I know this about myself: I am sensitive, feeling, creative, loving, passionate, relentless, empathetic, compassionate, kind, and strong. I trust in these qualities.
