  • Thoughts on growth. So I’ve been posting and creating a lot of “growth” related content lately. I think it because that is the season for me right now. A lot of changes are happening within and I am leaning into them instead of being afraid of the change. I am growing in my own way by staying in tune with what I need and want. I am paying more attention to those things instead of what society tells me my growth pattern should be like. Take it slow and surround yourself with the things that make you feel at ease. •

  • Bloom where you’re planted. Bloom where you want. Bloom when you’re ready. I’m still so proud of my Bloom: Self-Care Activity zine. Do you have one? What’s your favorite activity? Link in bio if you want one! I want to put together some other zines in the future since this one has been such a hit. •

  • GET COMFY IN DISCOMFORT. Can we talk about growing pains for a minute? I’ve been striving for change and growth in my life. However, every time something made me slightly uncomfortable I would cower in fear and go back to what I was doing before. Then I’d beat myself up for not progressing but I could never figure out what was holding me back. Then one day it clicked for me. I didn’t know how to make it through the hard parts of growth. I had my safety net and I was content with staying there. Which is fine, but I didn’t realize how much was happening on the outside of my safety net. •
Sometimes we need to get a little uncomfortable in order to get where we’re going. We might be unsure about something but we need to see it through. Keep showing up for yourself and see it through to the other side. Take risks, challenge yourself and be present in those tough moments. You’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish! •
I do have to say that not all discomfort is good. Sometimes it is a sign that this may not be for you. Be mindful of this when you are making your choices. What’s for you is already yours, show up and get it! •

  • The #summersolstice is here and I am grateful. Winter was long and it was tough. There were lots of growing pains for me and I’m sure for many of you too. However, light is returning and it is time for us to bask in it. This is a time for reflection, reconnecting with nature and embracing the light within. What are your summer solstice rituals or celebrations? I will be journaling, doing yoga and taking a nice walk outside. •

  • I am growing with the flow. I am listening more and talking less. I am observing before reacting. I am not resisting change. I am listening to what’s within. I understand my pace and know that it is different from those around me. I’m content with that. •
