I’ve created this as a space to share as I embrace a new chapter in this life. But, before I go on ahead, I feel it necessary to acknowledge all the up and downs and love and support that has carried me through the storm of this past year.
When I left Vancouver on my 26th birthday with a backpack and a pair of hiking boots, I had absolutely no idea where I was headed (or what the sh*t I might need in my pack). All I knew was that it was absolutely totally imperative that I leave behind the life that had become so toxic and unbearable. So, I just left town, stepped onto a ferry heading to Vancouver Island and tried my best to simply believe in the good things coming.
It’s been a year of immense change and beautifully wild adventures.
From where I’m standing now, I can see the overflowing cascades of love and support that helped carry me through. I met incredible people who opened their homes and hearts to me. I’ve made friendships with people who amaze and ignite my spirit. I’ve fallen in love with so many beautiful humans and am unspeakably grateful for all the good fortune that has come my way.
If you’re reading this, chances are, you’re one of those people. Thank you.
I am slowly learning how to navigate this heart-led path. I am opening to the potential of embracing myself and my gifts. I am changing.
At times the shifts seem sudden and abrupt, at times they seem to grind ever so slowly through my being. Either way, I am changing.
As a testament to the beauty that can be found in the breakdown, here I share some photographs from the past 12 months ::
