make a wish on a starfish
So the tale goes, coming across a starfish along your journey is considered a celestial symbol of good fortune, intuitive growth, healing, and divine love.
Ever since I was a child, I've felt drawn to nature. I've always felt pulled, compelled, balanced, and inspired by all the wonders hidden (sometimes in plain sight) just outside the door. I've always felt heightened levels of compassion and love for animals and insects. I've always felt re-energized by the feeling of the earth under my bare feet. I've always found the deepest inner workings of my soul amongst the solitude of the forest. And I've always been drawn to the water. The sounds, the feelings, it all crashes like waves throughout my dreams while I sleep. All at once, I have felt exhilarated, calmed, terrified, and pulled by the depth, the power, and the unknown, of the ocean. But mostly, I've been, and will forever be, energized by it's "go with the flow" attitude.
I guess the point of my classic "nature-loving" rant is that the earth provides us with so many messages if we choose to listen. It can humble us, re-energize us, help set our path, and, most importantly (but often forgotten), the earth provides us with life. Without it, we would not exist. For that reason, I choose to listen to the energies that draw me to nature, and I choose to open my eyes and ears to the little signs that help me gain introspective insight, happiness, meaning, resiliency, and peace, along my own personal journey of life.
So folks, if you are like me and drawn to the sea, then make a wish on a starfish, and set your soul free 🌊

Caught some great cozy weather on a solo hike today. The kid who told me it was spooky up here definitely knew the vibes😎
This week has been heart wrenching. Ironically, #worldbreastfeedingweek hit right as my decade-long journey of nursing ended-so I’ve spent the week avoiding posts by women I love in order to preserve my heart. We’re entering into a new season of parenthood: a really beautiful season, I realize, but new nonetheless. Hoping I can quickly learn to embrace this new freedom and how to best pour the physical energy I’ve reserved for nurturing my babies for 10 years back into myself from here on out. Watching babies grow past the point of needing me is an enormously bittersweet gift.

Forever thankful for this gal, always humoring my most ridiculous requests. . . This one being no different, stepping out during a brief moment of sunshine (and very very high wind) during the hurricane’s landfall earlier this week

let’s talk about how feeling unshakeable worth actually works.
there are a lot of people out there who say some wild things about worthiness. people with very little education, training and experience on healing to this part of ourselves have all sorts of opinions… and sadly much of it isn’t grounded in what actually creates sustainable long term changes.
because the truth is: your capacity to feel unshakeable worth has little to do with arriving at a “Worth Utopia” where suddenly you feel worthy and happy forever and nothing bad ever happens.
you are not defective for having the worthiness wound.
you are simply human living a human experience on this messy, crumbling world.
the problem is that while we continue to believe that we are only going to have what we want when we feel worthy… is that we will continue to perpetuate this sense that we are broken for not having what we want.
what if there was a different way?
I believe the best way to cultivate worth and feel deserving of the life you crave is by developing a different relationship with your worthiness wound.
it’s not about eradication. it’s about integration.
this is what has worked for me, and hundreds of women who have done this work with me.
when you stop being at war with yourself and your pain and start to learn how to listen and tend to it you…
>> feel more spacious in taking actions that are aligned with your needs rather than your brokenness
>> allow love, care, support, ease and joy to come into your life
>> understand how your unique inner world works and feel confident in your capacity to navigate it without overwhelm and paralysis
>> create healthy relationships with those around you based on boundaries, trust, play, communication, respect and intimacy
>> experience more pleasure
this is what it means to heal. and it can create a whole new way of experiencing how the world can work for you and your life.
