My last newsletter had the most responses from my readers. And the simple, but difficult reason why, is because I’m owning my story and sharing it.
The parts I have to own have to do with my pain and shame, two gauntlets through which I am finding my truth.
Life is a stacking of layers—layers of beauty and joy sandwiched in by pain and shame. If we can dig into it, understand it, and own it we are on our way to a greater story.
I’ve danced around this for too long. Five years of thinking about wanting to write, then two years of consistent writing has led me to that truth embodied in one essay last week.
The resonance I was looking to hit started with a bell inside of me.
So why is this under a series on membership and community? Because this is where I break ground and start to build the foundation.
I’ve reset the counter. This is where I start again.
