I love you

Dear High Protein Breakfast Company,
I love you. Thank you for being one of the biggest teachers and influences in my life. At times, you kicked my butt. There were times when I thought I hated you so much, sometimes wondering what I had ever done to you. But I know now, you were, and still are, my biggest mirror to illuminate the parts of me, I need to shed, that no longer serve me.
You have taught me so much. You taught me to believe in myself. You taught me to build a business based on my own values, even when that meant going against what “everyone else” did. You taught me about reciprocal loving relationships. You taught me to let go of relationships that didn’t serve me. You taught me to always, always walk towards what I want (even when that means seeing, owning, and loving the dark parts of me). You taught me about courageous conversations. You taught me to be unafraid of being seen and heard. You taught me to show up for what I really believe in. You taught me to trust; to trust that I can step off the cliff and be fully supported. You taught me that it’s safe to lean into fear and be supported by people. You taught me that it’s safe to love not ever really knowing if it’s going to work out.
Thank you for introducing me to some incredible people and showing me over and over again the amazing people in my life.
Because of you, I trust that I am supported, and I am loved.
Transforming to a place where you believe in yourself to go after your dream can be painful. Every challenging experience, painful relationship, and compromise you’ve ever made in good conscience will somehow transform into a beautiful inner reservoir of spiritual gifts.
I believe life wants to remind us of some things when we’re going through a challenging time that sometimes seems eternal:
Trust – there’s a higher purpose behind every seemingly impossible and difficult phase. You’ve just got to hang in there and know that it’s for the best. Trust the shedding.
Change – If you find yourself feeling bad a lot more often than not, take time out to reflect on whether or not you’re happy deep down with what you’re doing.
Believe – Believe in yourself, even if some don’t.
