As women, I think we’ve been sold this idea that as we hit middle age we are supposed to shrink, and fade and disappear into the background. And I just have to say that it is just such the biggest load of bullshit ever! With every year that passes I feel like I occupy myself even more and really shift gears to drive myself deeper into purpose and service. With every silver hair that reveals itself to actually be antennae, I tune into more frequencies that I never heard before. As I celebrate my solar return today, I feel that the best days of my life still lay ahead of me.

I have realized that my capacity to love and care take life, is a mirror for the love and healing that I have worked for and feel for myself. The more work I do to uncover and love the darkness within, the more space I have to help and hold space for others. It’s such a beautiful dance, that in my true cancerian self, makes me emotional and tear up a bit.

I have never felt more clear in my work, and never felt my grounded in my purpose. This past year, with all its ups and downs, its trials and errors, I see the value is taking up space and not hiding, embodying what I have come to do, and designing my life to work for me and with me.

In the past, I wouldn’t dare post about the fact that today is my birthday, but seeing as this is my last dance in my 30’s I can’t help but express the love and gratitude that I feel for this crazy thing we call life. I am eternally grateful for all the new people that I’ve met this past year, and for my dear friends and family who mean the world to me.

Anyway, all of this to say…. life is a gift, life is short, so live it to the fullest.

Lucky 7’s, baby!
