Taking the Leap

“I’ve got a good feeling about this.” -Bing Bong 

What if you had everything you need, within yourself?

A year ago today, I received an email that would change my life forever. It was a bittersweet email that brought feelings of sadness of an ending, but hope for a better, new beginning. 

A year of: 

growth

sadness

anxiety 

love

letting go 

forgiveness

desperation 

anger

joy

despair

gratitude 

hope

A year full of emotion.

I didn’t realize my emotions were trying to teach me something. I didn’t understand that my anger was trying to tell me I deserved to be treated better. Or that my joy was helping me recognize the things that excited my soul.

The night after spending the day at Jenny lake, my new favorite place in the entire world, I had an idea, two words. Van. Life. I was going to create a platform called, “Core Memories” and travel while creating unforgettable memories doing what I loved and sharing it with the world. It was exciting but terrifying to think about. The more I thought about it, the less practical it sounded. So I buried it back in my dreams

I applied for more “practical” jobs when I got back home. Got a job I had more than enough experience for, but the excitement I felt in my soul that day at Jenny Lake wasn’t there. But who cares, it was practical!;)

See I’ve never been one to stay at a job for longer than 6 months. Many see that as unreliable or unprofessional. But why would I stay somewhere that wasn’t helping me grow? Why would I choose to spend a significant portion of my day somewhere I didn’t enjoy being. I think one of the best things you can do for yourself is let go of jobs, living situations, even people that are not helping you become who you want to be or accomplish what you’ve always dreamed of. 

I have a strong work ethic for things I don’t enjoy doing. I started to think about how much my work ethic could improve if I was doing something I loved. But UGH! If only what I loved was practical. The list of jobs I’ve applied for that did not ignite anything within me is long!

The last year I have reevaluated almost every aspect of my life. But especially my career. “I literally have no idea what I want anymore” I would say as people asked about my life. It was a really uncomfortable stressful place to be in. When it felt as if everything was falling apart, it was all just coming together in a different way. A better way than I could’ve ever imagined. 

Of course it was uncomfortable, it’s something I hadn’t experienced yet and had no idea how it would turn out. How often do we stay stuck in a toxic environment, job, relationship, anything that is preventing you from becoming your best self, because we are afraid of the unknown?

Alignment is an incredible thing. It reaffirms that your desires are aligned with your purpose. We often need to realign ourselves but that is what makes the journey that much more exciting. 

Wherever you’re at in life, your core memories, your core beliefs, desires, are what make you, YOU! This platform is to help you navigate and create more of those core memories to create the life you’ve always dreamed of. Along with so many other empowering things to come.

I’m so happy you’re here and I can’t wait to hear more about your journey and share mine with you.
