Running, Wandering…or Both?
Enough (pronoun); As much or as many as required; to the required degree or extent.
I know I’m not the only one when I say I’ve doubted many aspects around my life, most notably my career and pathway to my purpose; my abilities, my dreams, even myself….
Open letter to my future daughter:
My future daughter,
I love you so much. You don’t even exist yet and I’m not even sure that you ever will, but I love you. I know that I love you even though I’ve never met you. And I know that you’re beautiful even though I have never laid eyes on you. I think about you all the time. I think about you and what life will be like if/when you ever arrive. I wonder, what will your life be like? Will I be a good enough mom? Will I have prepared you enough for this, often times, cruel world that we live in? There are so many things that I want to tell you. So many things I need you to know.
Never would I have thought that I could allow myself to be vulnerable and transparent with people on a lifestyle I wouldn’t have expected I’d desire as a twenty-something.

Because, honestly, if it if doesn’t start with you- it might not start at all.
I’ve had to learn the difference between rejection and redirection- over and OVER. To be honest, it’s a very difficult concept to digest. This is mainly because humans thrive off of applause. Validation is one of those things we quickly take solace in because it reassures us that, seemingly, we’re on the right path. Why is this sense of security so dependant on other people though?
