I’ve created topical resource pages to support you in showing up fully to life in every season. Each page represents a thread of my work and gathers together articles, interviews, resource recommendations, and my hard-fought wisdom & lived experience to help you live brave & whole.
I’m no stranger to grief. I’ve tasted more than my share already, certainly far more than my friends. But child loss is something else altogether. Suicide loss adds another layer to the pain. Yet it is possible to live whole and brave even through the thick, terrible, wilds of grief. You (we) are strong enough to do this.
Tuning into the season we’re in can help us live gentler, slower and simpler lives. We become more attuned to and less fearful or resentful of the ebb and flow of life. We put down deeper, healthy roots of self-awareness and self-compassion that allow us to tilt and flex and not break when the storms come.
When we acknowledge that life is messy, imperfect, and sometimes crushing but that our story isn’t done yet and we can keep writing, we’re more able to access the curiosity and bravery required to forge ahead through uncertainty.
We aren’t required to have it all together in order to shine our light or do the work in the world to which we feel called. We can build a healthy stress mindset to help rob fear of its power. Showing up through fear – like all growth and becoming – requires practice. One stubborn step and then another.
We all struggle – not one of us will get through life without tasting struggle or pain though our circumstances will look different. This is not a sign of your value or worth – this is simply part of being human in a messy world. Care for yourself like you matter.
Don’t give up on happiness – while we can’t control all of our life circumstances, we can choose small, intentional, daily habits that help us build a full, beautiful life.
You do not have to live in judgment anymore – comparing yourself to others or trying to keep up or measure up. You do not have to live in shame simply because you’re human in a messy world. You can decide that you are enough. You are messy, imperfect, beautiful, gifted – and already enough.
