The amount of personal growth that I have experienced this year is immeasurable. All the tears, the endless hours of self-reflection, the shared laughter, the moments of sorrow and the moments of complete elation all led me to today. I know that there is still a significant amount left in this journey, but right now, in the moment I couldn't be happier.
I never expected the overwhelmingly positive feedback from my new site launch. I wish I was a better writer so I could truly convey the immense gratitude and pure joy that it brought to my heart to receive your texts, your comments and your emails.
This year has taught me that those emotional walls I spent most of my life hiding behind were only holding me back. It's taught me that vulnerability should not be looked down upon, it should be embraced. To live life by virtue of these concepts is far from easy for me. Yet, I can say that I've never felt more fulfilled since applying them to my life. There's a certain freedom one receives when they live this way, when one puts their whole heart and soul out into the world for all to see.
I never want to lose that.
What I do want?!?!?
I never want lose the desire to be taken by the hand, to be swept away to experience the woods, the oceans, the raw air of developing countries ... to travel the world. I never want to lose faith that I will find his smell will bring me comfort, that his touch will allow me to breathe. I want to continually feature and share these qualities of my clients and their relationships. Because I've learned that ...
" I thrive on capturing the connection between couples who aren't afraid to get wet just to make out in the rain, who find inspiration in one another and who believe that being surrounded by the one's you love is one of the best feelings in the world."
