My friend Christine reminded me to breathe last week. She bore witness to my tension, my tears, my fears, and my current process of transformation. I shared the struggles I’ve been facing and how I terrified, feel the growth, and my awakening. The awakening feels difficult to put into words, but the most I can say is that the experience feels like being unaware that you’ve been asleep, and suddenly realizing you’ve been asleep, AND everything suddenly makes sense/connects.
I believe that everyone’s awakening is different, so what I’m feeling and becoming aware of, won’t be the same as yours. When I saw S.R.W’s work (hand written by artist Kaylie Wong) on IG it made my heart skip a beat.
“If winter has courage to turn into spring, who says I can’t bloom just the same?” S.R.W
I was thinking about how my journey has felt like an endless and tiring blizzard. No sun for warmth. A lack of nourishment. Aching bones. An overwhelming sadness. But the courage I’ve had throughout this journey has been my north star, leading to the start of my awakening. I can see my spring in the distance. Golden sun rising to my truth.
