This entire week I have had the privilege to be a part of a countless number of beautiful, terrifying, disturbing, innocent, sincere, and hilarious moments and interactions. In a professional and personal context.
I could find a hundred topics amidst those moments to write about, but… it just wasn’t happening.
I was creatively stuck.
I tried to create a collage of photographs from my phone to sum up the past few days. However, they just didn’t do my experiences justice.
Perhaps my blog was taking on a different function? Two months ago I survived with my metaphorical “muzzle” on at all times… my writings and creations were how I released the smoke from the fire of truth inside of me.
Now, I am constantly processing, constantly creating. I write daily in emails, notes, and texts expressing my whole truth.
Then, today all the moments and all the people and all the ups and downs from the week came together as I was texting with an incredible friend who is going through something.
I told her…
Life is a roller coaster of beauty and pain. We have to figure out when to breathe, when to hold on, and when to just trust.
Then, I wrote it on the board in my office and sat with it… the words that could not be rushed, and could not be written without being experienced.
To all the dynamic souls who allowed me to experience life “muzzle-free” this week-
Thank you for reminding me to breathe… to hold on… and to trust.
