Bob Dylan once wrote "The Times They are a Changin..."
There is no better title to my life than that song right now. Life is changing. For the better. But painfully so. As I process this, I'm not 100% comfortable detailing all the ins and outs, but needless to say, I have a lot of self work to do. I have neglected this platform for a while. But as I find myself in a place of significant tumult, fear, and hope, I will bring this back up to date for you all to follow along.
For reference, and a talking point that will weave in and out of the next predictable future, I failed to validate myself for me. I have spent years basing how I felt and who I was based off the opinions of others. And it is time to stop. As a result of this (at almost 37, I'm finally growing up) I have developed so many compensation mechanisms its hard to count. And it has finally caught up to me. And change it is coming. So if you're still sticking around and following this, would you mind letting me know in the comments or on social media?
To be honst I'm scared to death to share my journey. But my hope is that someone out there is going through the same stuff and needs to hear it.
Here is to the future!
