Growth, change, transformation—these are often emotional and hard. But looking back on where you've been and recommitting to yourself every day is important. Even more valuable, though, is allowing yourself the grace to understand your path may swerve. There are days we'll feel unstoppable and on course. There are days we'll feel lacking and off course.
When I look at this photo of myself, I remember a moment in my cousin's kitchen. Shortly before this picture was taken, my cousin, Meredith, and I were standing in her living room crying! We were swapping clothes; I tried on these jeans and she said “oh, Allison”, and began to cry and I quickly followed. We weren’t crying because I fit into the jeans, we were crying because in that moment we both realized the transformation I have made this year – mind, body, and spirit. You see, it was in that same living room more than 12 months ago that we individually cried for separate experiences we were going through. We sat together day in and day out, with my goddaughter, through a good portion of her maternity leave, supporting one another. During that time, I did Reiki sessions here and there for clients, but now looking back on it I needed that down time to reset, so that I could make the changes I’ve made this year.
What changes, you ask? Getting healthy all around – from the healthy food I put into my body, the non-toxic products I put on my body, the people I surround myself with, and most importantly with the relationship I have with myself. That’s where it all begins. It wasn’t quick and it wasn’t easy and it’s not over. But, let me tell you that it is all so worth it!
Do you feel like there’s something that you want to change? Do it! Just take a step, no matter the size, and begin to move in the direction of change. You WILL NOT regret it! Need support? Ask for it! I would not be where I am today without the help, support, and guidance of many amazing woman and a few good men too! 😉 Don't know where to begin? Contact me, I am here to support you, cheer you on, and be the shoulder to cry on. You are not alone. 💜
