I went back to school at the beginning of this year to finish my degree. I wanted to finish what I started for years, then years became decades – I had opportunities to go back but I wasn’t able to get past my own barriers until recently.
I didn’t finish before because I was afraid I wasn’t worthy of taking up space, because someone made me believe I wasn’t good enough. I was so stuck in my past pain I had a hard time physically showing up due to severe anxiety.
I’m finishing it now. I’m doing this to claim my space/place in the world. I’m doing this for me then and for me now. I’m doing this to come full circle in healing an old wound – for myself, as well as all my ancestors before me and all who come after me. I’m doing this for me 💖
I am sharing this with you in hopes to inspire you to go for it, whatever your goals and dreams. It isn’t too late, you can be who/what you want to be and do what you dream of doing…you have it within you to create it and to modify it to fit your life.
I also hope to demonstrate that healers, spiritual professionals, and those who seek growth/transformation are not without issues and/or obstacles. I am working through my old pain and limitations even as I type this. I am able to help others because I learned how to actively help myself. There was a time when I was waiting around for the next thing before I stepped out of my comfort zone and opened myself to possibilities. I was waiting to be healthier, to learn the next thing, to acquire the next certification, and to have more credentials-experience-results-proof of my worth instead of JUST DOING MY THING.
So, if there is anything you take away from this, let it be this: stop waiting for something to happen or the stars to align and do what fills you with joy!
