Why? Because it’s what leads to all those magical and messy and beautiful breakthroughs—and opens the doorway to what you truly, deeply desire.
The reason I care so much about emotional wellness is because it was once the area of life I struggled with the most. For most of my life, I ran away from my feelings and shamed myself for feeling anything that wasn’t positive or “good.” When I realized that that my emotions weren’t the problem—it was my relationship *to* them—everything began to shift. Feelings became wise messengers that lit up the way to my truest self.
Writing and journaling have long been two of my favorite tools for inner discovery and healing. Something magical and cathartic happens when my pen hits the page. As the noise of the outside world softens, the voice of my inner truth speaks up—and points the way to what wants to be seen and heard. My hope is that with this collection, you have a sacred space for the messy, the magical—and everything in between. A place to find healing, wisdom, and your wild truth.
