“You must want to spend the rest of your life with yourself first.” ✨
Let’s add this to the list of things I never thought would happen.
I’m going to let that sink in.
Humans are messy.
Life is messy.
The world is messy.
If there is one thing I’ve learned throughout my remission from an eating disorder, managing misophonia, healing six stress fractures and osteopenia before age 25, navigating hip dysplasia and competing nationally in jump rope, it’s this:
I’m not broken.
There is nothing wrong with my soul or my being.
YOU are not broken.
There is nothing wrong with YOU.
Shit goes down.
Life slams us on our asses.
We feel the depth of everything.
The darkness is real. ◌
None of this equates to meaning that you’re broken or that what your experiencing isn’t valid.
It’s so incredibly valid.
It has a meaning, a story to tell.
Just like you.
We’re all out there in this world, heads bobbing above water and sometimes it feels like we’re drowning.
Figure out what the story behind being slammed on your ass or handed a shit sandwich means.
Like WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN.
I’ll tell you what it doesn’t mean:
It doesn’t mean your invalid.
It doesn’t mean you suck.
It doesn’t mean you give up.
It doesn’t mean your broken.
It doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to keep going.
You are not broken.
Learn to appreciate the mess.
Learn to understand it.
When we understand the mess and can work with it rather than run from it, our story changes.
Take your story and run WITH it.
You’re the only you and that’s pretty neat.
Figure out how to WANT to spend your life with yourself and your story.

You will have bad days.
This is life.
We are humans.
Please, keep going.
Keep finding hope.
Keep seeing a light.
Keep staying on your path.
Life is complexed and parallels itself in many ways:
Beautiful yet ugly.
Wonderful yet daunting.
Happy yet sad.
Life, the universe, our existence:
It’s all a complete paradox.
It’s raw and real and all too much but not enough at the same time.
Keeping moving forward can be challenging.
Heck, keeping standing up can be challenging.
Nevermind listening to your unique human quirkiness and weirdness which makes you feel fulfilled but also feels uncomfortable, “not normal”, and perhaps super overwhelming.
You have innate value because you’re alive.
No matter how quirky or “abnormal”.
Your path has a purpose.
You have a purpose.
Find the little things which bring you joy, wonder, and hope.
The things which show you there is a light amongst all the rollercoaster ride.
Backwards, standing, forwards.
Just keep going.
Keep being real.
Keep showing up.
It all matters.
