The last 6+ months have been transformative and trying, to say the least. I’ve faced some of my deepest fears, highest levels of stress, and saw control dissolve to make room for an unbelievable amount of personal growth. It’s the type of growth that made me see it’s part of my mission to guide others in the process of also overcoming fears, stress, and the need to control in even the most trying of seasons of life as a practitioner and friend.
In this article, I open up about my latest fears coming true and how I’m overcoming them. I share how I’ve overcome fears, stress, and the need to control through setting boundaries, processing, the power of conviction, mantras, and learning to live in the process.
This is a personal story, a journal entry if you will. I'm writing this from bed. I have three, two-inch incisions in my abdomen and it takes all my strength to get up. I've been on prescription pain killers all weekend, there's some residual anesthesia running through me, I'm jumpy and uncoordinated but I got some sleep last night for the first time in three days. This is one of those times when rolling with a process that's out of my control is the only choice.
