i think i found the magic thread
some exciting news
I’ve spent most of the past ten years adrift. Not quite lost at sea - that feels too dramatic - but moreso unmoored on a gentle inland lake, with my loved ones supportively surrounding me on rafts as I calmly paddle myself in a general direction that feels like it might be right.
My anxiety levels as I swim myself along haven’t been extravagant, but on days that I feel particularly lost, when I struggle to figure out what’s right for me, what’s next for me, how I can feel creatively fulfilled while helping others while also paying my rent, I tell myself:
I tell myself this over and over and over. All the seemingly fragmented pieces that have built up my life so far will be weaved together with a magical golden thread of connection.
An instructor in a course I recently enrolled in told me:
This past month, I made a commitment, a step forward on my meandering career path. Miraculously, I think my desire for it all to make sense is slowly starting to take shape. Is this what being in your 30s is all about? More likely, time has nothing to do with it. It’s just my path and I’m puttering along slowly, unsurely, with a great deal of care.
For now, I’m feeling a bit vulnerable in it all as I process and work toward my goals, but I’ll share details as they develop in the safe container of my messy studio space below. I know it will enhance and brighten this space, and all my work and offerings, and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.
If you’re feeling lost right now, know you’re not alone. Surround yourself with humans who believe in you. Keep going, keep going, keep going. If you follow your gut and stay true to your path, it will all make sense one day.
May we all feel supported by loved ones when we’re lost in the waters of life.
May we all find the magical golden thread that connects the pieces of our worlds.
Welcome to my messy studio (!!) where I share inspiration for mindfulness, well-being, healing, and creative unblocking. A space to encourage embracing the imperfect and inspire a creative, whole life.
This week, I share details of a career shift that feels exciting and nerve-wracking and very, very right. It’s all in process, but I know it will only enrich my offerings, in this space and beyond. I hope sharing my vulnerable journey encourages others to keep pursuing their own. Thank you for being here, through it all.
