Shape-Shifter


Everything is bound to shift because everything is temporary.

The anxiety of transition and the unknown can be intense, but can only truly be vanquished if we stay present and embrace our new person 100%.

You would not be you if you didn’t continue to move forward from each phase of your life to the next.

Transitions require entirely different versions of ourselves, making us brand new again.

And once we start over, what do we take with us into the next level of ourselves?

We definitely have our past failures and experiences to add into this new person...

But what will your new self be able to achieve that your previous self couldn’t even imagine?

And we all do the work to better ourselves.

We lay the ground work. We set goals. We give ourselves a purpose in this life by having something to fight for.

And once we succeed, or elevate into a new phase of life, suddenly there are new sets of goals we are meant to achieve.

We have a new purpose.

We will always be in a cycle of endings and beginnings.

And do you know what I have learned so far on my artistic journey that has been nothing but goals and filled to the brim with passion and endings and beginnings?

This whole time, no one actually cared what I was doing.

And what I mean by that is, no one was thinking about my goals or my past and current achievements.

At all.

Everyone is wrapped up in their own business to actually care about yours.

So with that, please, let yourself off the hook. Pace yourself.

Take a breath and know that no one is thinking about you.

If you are working on something big, and you are inspired, others are bound to be inspired by you.

**And I believe sharing what lights you up in this world is important.**

But whatever it is you are trying to achieve, do it for yourself. Do it because you are called to do it.

Because at the end of the day, no one is watching.

Give yourself permission to change your mind.

Switch it up.

As your life shifts, shift with it.

When you are committed to your dreams and your life, a better version of you will somehow or another appear.

You will always be ready for the next level of YOU.

Discovering myself all over again continues to keep life exciting and unpredictable.

Which is why with a big birthday around the corner, I choose to accept this transitional time with open arms and letting go of expectations.

There is so much freedom once you accept that no one was thinking about you all along.

>>>>

Over recent years, I have had a cool realization.

Sometimes it almost feels like as I continue to grow, the next version of myself just so happens to be searching for me as well. It’s like I arrive halfway and there she is! Waiting for me. Welcoming me to embrace a new life that comes with a brand new perspective.

So, in a way, I had been there all along :)
