Welcome!

I have no idea where I’m going, I just know how to get there.

I’m not your guru, nor am I enlightened, but I do know a bit about embracing life when it seems as though the bottom has fallen out.

I once felt as though my life was constantly on fire, and I was truly tired from beating back the flames. One day, exhausted and desperate, I walked right on in to the inferno insteadasking the hard questions, facing my fears, and waking up. To my great surprise I didn’t burn at all. I thrived!

Resisting my true self was exhausting. It turns out that surrender is the ticket out of feeling stuck and unfulfilled. Resistance is the burn. Surrender is freedom. Also, owning up to your true nature is more courageous, infinitely more compelling, and a whole lot of fun!

Each day I wake up feeling like things just got interesting. I’m learning how to embrace vulnerability, and begin again.

These stories are about me finding my way.
