“Fine” is Not a Final Destination

Women in my circle are waking up to their own brilliance, anchoring into the essence of the life they so deeply desire, and it’s such an honor to witness this transformation.
The alchemy of remembering, discovering, and delighting in all that illuminates who they truly are manifests in so many unique ways, yet the glow is always the same.
The spark, joy, desire, gratitude, awareness, intuition, and deep self-trust that develops from daring to dive deep into the unsaid, shake shit up, and defy the status quo is palpable.
It is brave to give up “good” to experience “great,” refusing to accept “fine” as a final destination.
It’s inspiring to be surrounded by such brave souls, as the work of self-discovery is not for the faint of heart. Both defiance and deep wisdom coexist in such a tender balance as they blaze the trail to their wildest dreams.
It requires dedication, grit, and the ability to leap beyond the edges of your comfort zone—demanding that you take action even when it doesn’t always work out as planned, knowing you will figure it out along the way.
Trusting, even when it feels like there’s no evidence to support your decision, but your intuition says otherwise.
Reaching out and allowing others to support, nurture and cheer you on as you do the hard work of showing up.
I share this to nudge you to recognize the places where you are already doing the work. To crack open your sense of curiosity and let fresh ideas and inspiration flow through you.
So often, this goes unrecognized when we go on the journey alone. Where can you connect and find support on this path? There is such beauty in seeing your own brilliance reflected back to you by others, knowing they’ve seen it all along and have been patiently waiting for you to own it yourself—to recognize bits of yourself reemerge as you finally let go of patterns or stories that only served to submerge the real you.
Confidence builds when another witnesses your strengths—allowing the presence of an objective ear to simply listen as your story unfolds, offering a steady hand to hold as you take the next uncertain steps on your path.
Connection is key to our healing, cultivating true wisdom, and creating conversations that speak to the soul. We are able to enact and embrace our new way of being in a safe and supportive environment.
I share this in gratitude and in celebration of all of you who are so bravely and brazenly finding your own way. As we walk this journey together, we know we are never alone despite the different paths we may have chosen.
