Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.
This week, there are a few things that have been on my heart: Being unashamed of what you want, getting in tune with your desires, and knowing when it’s time to be bold.
Sometimes in life, you need to step up your game. You need to switch up the dynamics in your relationships and let people know you’re changing. You need to take a risk and try something that’s out of your comfort zone. You need to face the possibility of rejection from a person or opportunity. And just go with the flow and see what happens.
Assessing what you’re truly available for can be tough. Looking in the mirror can be scary. Clearing the blocks, kinks, and limiting beliefs is like an extra full-time job where you don’t get a break. Personal development takes work. We’re always changing. Always in transition.
However, those who are brave receive greater rewards. Sometimes you need to expose your feelings in order to let a person know you care. Sometimes you need to jump into the deep end. Sometimes you need to ask for what you need or create a boundary- and doing so is super-awkward. Just let people know what you’re available for. Get in tune with your standards and self-esteem. And ask for what you need.
If you’re ready to be bold, you need to improve your relationship to being direct. You need to stop worrying about other people’s reactions to the boundaries you’re creating and just do what’s best for you. Express what you need with love. It takes extra effort in your communication to release old patterns and change dynamics in your relationships, but I promise you that trying to do so is never in vain.
P.S. Totally re-wearing the jean jacket in a fashion blogger post because that is a realistic transitional piece from winter to spring that you would wear when you go out in a casual outfit. Let’s be real.

I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led, and bearding every authority which stood in their way. – Thomas Jefferson
