The Other Side

We’re all broken people. We’re all damaged goods in some way, shape or form. We all struggle. The difference is whether or not we allow our struggle to define us, or refine us.

There comes a time in our lives when are brought to the precipice of a great change. We are asked to rise to our own challenges, let go of all of the fears and insecurities that have kept us caged our entire lives, and make a leap into darkness of the unknown. To cross the chasm between our destiny and what we’ve never allowed ourselves to be.

In that moment, just before we have the opportunity to step into our own power, the last tiny shard of fear that’s stuck in our hearts will twist. It will do everything in its power to keep you tethered to your cage, and you have to reach inside and pull it out.

You may bleed. I will certainly hurt. But in order to fully heal, you have to remove the shrapnel, and then you have to leap. Leap into the great unknown of your own potential. What’s waiting on the other side for you could be everything you’ve never allowed yourself to dare to believe was possible for you. Love. Beauty. Happiness.

Take the risk. Pull out the shard. Make the leap and trust the Universe–trust yourself, because you are the Universe–to catch you.

You are more powerful than you ever imagined.

Meet me on the other side.

Xo,

Ash

  1. Years ago, I took a course called The Artist’s Way. It impacted my life so much, I ended up teaching it for five years. One of the axioms was, “Leap, and the net will appear.” I jumped, and instead of falling, learned I could fly.

    • I wrote this with a specific person in mind. I used to tell them, “I just want to see you fly.” Thank you.
