Our family is going to go through a huge change and I'm simply letting go and letting be!
As I prepare our family for a move across the country I can't help but reflect on the life we have been living. We are all excited for the move, including lil Amazing, however, I find myself working through attachments I didn't realize I had. Moving to Nashville has brought some of the biggest life changes and growth I have ever, been through thus far in life. After four years of life here I have created a small community, realizing that a big city offers more distance from people and more loneliness than I had expected, yet the handful of relationships I have made here are so rich and contain so much depth that they will last this entire lifetime! We gave birth to our daughter at The Farm in Summertown, Tn in a cabin in the woods, we then brought her home to the same house my husband was born in, at the Big Valley! I learned and connected to the land, she gave us several years of abundant produce. I kept chickens and learned the personality of these silly birds and I grew and harvested many many of my own medicinal herbs. I learned to be efficient with nature, how to be domestic, adaptive and full of surrender! I lost my greatest partner, Sekoya and gained an incredible connection and bond with my daughter.
I am so thankful I took this step to change my world four years ago and leave my homeland. To create a child and start a family in a new unfamiliar environment that pushed me to know ME deeper. To stand by my man when I felt most disconnected and confused. I am the woman I am because of this life I've lived in Nashville, Tn. The mother I am because of the availability to be present and attentive due to my hard workin man and the opportunities he was offered here. The friend that I am because of the rich and special friendships that allowed me to truly be myself in whatever emotion I was feeling and they still cared and listened to me. We became mothers together! Thank you girls, you know who you are and the place you hold in my heart!
Letting life live me and surrendering to its magic and mystery has given me more gifts then what I could have ever given myself by planning it on my own. Surrendering myself has taken me to such deep waters and here the water is still even when the surface has so much turbulence.
