Building My Foundation

It's adversity, obstacles, and challenges that help us discover what we're made of.  Some of us need to challenge ourselves hard to get close enough to touch that inner essence of who we are.  I'm one of those people and the challenge I've set for myself here has brought me closer that I've ever been.  The emotion that comes up for me regularly these days, is a result of being so tuned in, so close to that raw center of self.  Nothing I've ever done has challenged me in this way and it's so important, crucial even, that I don't contract away in fear from the temporary pain of transition.

I'm building a foundation here.  Too many times I have moved into a center that didn't quite fit.  Either the place or the setting or the experience wasn't right.  This time I am building the experience from the roots, exactly as I want it to be.  It's back breaking work, but in the end I will be able to wipe away the blood, sweat, and tears and admire the stuff I'm made of and the dream life I've created.  It will have been built by me, for me, with purpose and passion.  Wherever I live after this home within me has been built, will be my true home and I can live in it wherever I choose.

I must remind myself in my weakest moments, that I am strong and supported, determined and capable.  This is my choice.  This is my calling.


  1. Great Blog, Great Posts, your work is inspiring, I have been trying to get my footing in Freelance writing, and I have never felt so lost as I do now, I have a full time job and I am scared to let everything go without knowing where this direction will lead me.

    Reading you blog and profile has been inspiring, may be one day I could find my calling too.

    1. I'm still scared and I've already done the hard part of letting everything go! Life isn't easy right now but it makes me feel so good and excited that I'm taking action toward living my dream life. It's hard, but I have no regrets or doubts about what I'm doing here.

      There is a quote that I love:
      "Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it."

      Good luck on your journey, friend me on facebook so we can keep in touch!
