There are times in life where we must dig deep to find our courage, truthfully that is different for all of us.
Courage to thrive in the best way possible in life that feels authentic and natural to me, to be my best self.
The road can feel lonely, winding, sometimes dark, but then the light appears, the path of the journey becomes clearer. When feeling alone, yet truly not alone, but am I? Yet standing tall, proud, regardless of whoever is around. Then without realizing yet, completely, you see you truly are not alone.
Then take a step back, widen the view, sometimes a narrow sight can also bring a narrow view. Step back, take a large step back and you realize you are not alone at all. There are others who are similar to you and even some who are not, all thriving together.
Sometimes finding that courage can feel daunting, it involves stepping out of the “norm” of what whoever declared “normal” should be and truly enveloping your truth, your authenticity that honors you.
As an introvert, empath, essential oil specialist, reiki master and photographer I know I am a unique kind and I embrace that with every ounce of my body! My life has been swaying from “the norm” for many years, but “openly” in the past 7 as we shifted to holistic health care.
Truthfully, what aligns with your heart? Honestly and earnestly. Regardless of what anyone else says, what is true in YOUR heart?
If you are into podcasts, this one below I listened to yesterday and is FANTASTIC!

Side note – As I was out taking photos the one evening I saw this beautiful tall bird standing majestically in the middle of the river. I stood and enjoyed watching him for a while and capturing his essence. As I changed lens and pulled back from the zoom, I could see so much more. He wasn’t the only big beautiful bird in the river, there were multiple. Not just of his kind but of others as well and smaller birds of another kind.
It wasn’t until I was home, had downloaded the images and was processing them that I saw in the shadows of my first set of photos of the large bird. One just as large, perhaps larger, standing in the background in the shadows.
How often do we in life feel like we are alone? Or don’t feel understood?
Truthfully, we are not. Regardless of what your view is in any facet of life, EMBRACE IT. Embrace your whole self and heart entirely. Regardless of what anyone else thinks.
That truly takes courage and power, of your own life 🥰!
