Today, I’m calling it OUT, friend.
Enough with the self-talk that says you should be moving faster than this, that you should be where someone else is. Enough with the believing you should just buck up and put on a happy face. Enough regret over all the years it took to get you to this very place.
You are so much further along than you’re giving yourself credit for. Because no one knows just how far behind you started.
These miles you’ve walked have not been easy.
They’ve been a full-frontal marathon through a face full of molasses. An uphill climb. A marathon three-generations deep in the making.
This work you are doing out here is not “easy story” work. It’s not a turn-key life placed gently in your waiting hands, an open door to anything you ever wanted. You have fought for it every step of the way.
But this is the work that three generations from now will point to and say, that was the branch in our family tree that changed everything.
You are doing the work right now that will unravel these tightly stitched seams of trauma and pain and unhealing. Day by day, with muddy, shaking hands, you are feeling your way to freedom.
So just know this, if today feels harder than most….
…You’re not weak, you’re not fragile, you’re not delicate.
You’re out here breaking generational chains…it is ok to be a little exhausted.
And this work that you’re doing is WORTH it.
