Showing up, letting go, and embracing courage.

It's hard to imagine my life will be completely different a month from now. I may not have everything figured out, but I don't need to. Life is still happening at its pace and I simply want to enjoy it. 


welcome to the process.

but in those moments of loneliness or restlessness, days where I feel overwhelmed with things to do or things I dream of doing, I am reminded that all of this is progress. that the first mile can’t be skipped or filtered, and it sure as heck isn’t meant to be sexy. stay the course. trust your progress. and welcome to the process.

I've been meeting people, traveling, finding pieces of my self. I've been here, present. But not here.

So far in the month of February, Beyoncé has performed at the …
