I'm taking a leap!

I'm taking a leap!

Soooo I LEAPED!! (scared but excited face)  I'm officially taking a leap of faith into my business to really commit to Inner Light Botanicals, crystal healing, teaching about yoga, mindfulness, self-care, positive self-talk and to feel more aligned with my purpose to make more positive change in more lives. Yesterday was my last day in my full-time job that I held for over 8 years, and while it was part of the journey, it wasn't my calling. I've been feeling all of the emotions.

And shadow work can really stir stuff up, make the internal waters a bit rough as you learn more about yourself and work through it.
