I have known for a long time now why I was created. And my life's journey so far has been a collection of lessons for me to try and understand empathy + compassion with each new person + experience. I'm not perfect by far but I never feel as alive as when I get to talk to someone and really speak honestly from our hearts. Free of judgement. Free to just spill out our guts and not worry about being misunderstood. To just be heard.
To have someone really look at you and see you. Even if we don't fully understand, we try.
I dream big. I dream of one day having big conferences full of classes, speakers, real people all connecting. Where we can share each other's stories, pains + joys. And uplift each other to keep going on. To keep fighting for more love.
But I also know the key to dreaming big is starting one step at a time. And doing what I can now and not just wait for things to happen. I have gotten and still receive many many emails and messages from many of you, brave enough to share your stories. To seek for a connection. And I'm always so honored to get them. To be thought of as someone who you would want to talk to. Even though we might be strangers, you trust me enough to tell me some of your deepest fears and biggest ambitions.
So inspired by you guys, I have decided to start one on one video conference chats with anyone who wants to talk. It may not seem like much, but I want to start somewhere.
If you are someone or know someone who would want to talk, ask advice, share your thoughts... I am here.
It all starts with this form:
I have come to believe that the biggest step is the first one. And that one starts with you and knowing you have the power to make that choice. If you are hurting or feel alone and that no one understands so you must suffer by yourself, you have the power to reach out to someone. I may not be that person, but please know you are loved and people want to be there.
Also on lighter note, if you just want to share how your day was, I'll always love to hear about it.
So, let's sip some tea and talk <3
With that, I send all my love.
