Getting where I stand today wasn’t easy but was and is so worth it every step of the way.
Two years and a half ago I took the biggest jump and leap of faith in my life and chose to let go of all that I was familiar with (corporate career, steady income, apartment in NY, friends, family) to move to the jungle by myself and dive deep in into who I am and what I truly wanted.
“I had to learn to forgive myself for any pasts events I was still holding grudge against myself for, to really look at myself, see who I really was, what I really wanted.”
Two years and a half ago I granted myself the biggest gift one could ever ask for: I granted myself the opportunity to fully surrender, to become as open and vulnerable one could ever get, to let go of any comforts, to question and challenge every way of acting and thinking, to forgive myself for any pasts events I was still holding grudge against myself for, to really look at myself, see who I really was, what I really wanted.
Today I encourage you to let go of who you think you are supposed to be, forget about trying to fit in anywhere and embrace who you are fully and, trust me when I say this, EVERYTHING will fall into place.
Now, I’m not telling you leave all that you know to leave a remote solo life unless that is what makes your soul shine bright. I did it because it is what my heart was asking for and because I knew that, no matter how remote I went I had the strongest emotional and loving support system. Even though I spent a substantial amount of time on my own, I didn’t do this alone.
“Learn to love and accept who you are. The biggest success and love in your life is right across the mirror.”
I love you,
