I recently took over ownership of the Louisville Salt Cave. In an effort to discover a deeper understanding of myself, life unfolded quite rapidly. I’ve been able to love myself more. Through a lot of work and reflection I stand up for myself when things don’t feel right, I now know that I don’t have to do it all and can back down when I maybe used to charge full steam ahead.
My why behind taking over ownership of the Cave continues to develop and right now I see an opportunity for us all to be completely vulnerable, exposed and in our skin. To feel with every fiber of our being, and embrace our sweet selves for allowing ourselves to truly live. This is why we’re here, isn’t it? To have these human experiences of many emotions while continuing to distance our attachment to them?
This recent journey has taken me places I can’t put into words, but know it is a matter of faith and of dedication. A lot of what I’ve discovered is attributed to breath work and coaching and I’m so grateful for those opportunities. I hope to offer them to the world someday.
My support network has carried me through the past couple of months and John Bartlett deserves major props for continuing to hold our family together. We are all so lucky to have one another and I’m grateful for them every day.
I’ve been feeling a lot of sadness around this closing of what once was to what is now, despite the abundant opportunity for authenticity. And I’ve been running from it instead of holding space for myself through it. But something happened the other day that allowed me to slow down and really be with that feeling. I thanked myself for allowing that feeling to flow through me, and when I did that, I almost had a euphoric experience in knowing this was my why of being here. I created these life experiences and it’s time to stop running from, or judging the emotions that come with them. To be in them is the beauty of it all!
To share this vulnerability with you might just be my opportunity of expression, my Personal Legend, as The Alchemist would say. Using my voice, as I have in patterns throughout life, to make a difference.
As I write this, I struggle to not include meaningful references that might help you along your journey, but this blog is written about my personal experience and I’m going to leave it at that.
