I just closed Shauna Niequist's most recent sharing of her soul, "Present Over Perfect."
It confirmed how I've been feeling. The aching of my own soul. The conversation I had after drawing out my life mind map style in my journal this past week after having a slight meltdown.
I have to tell you all, "BRB."
& maybe I won't BRB. Maybe I'll move into a new season. Maybe I'll find a new way to express my heart to the world. Maybe I'll help people find freedom from food and help them to learn to love their bodies in another avenue. Who knows, I won't promise anything because I can't predict the future.
What I do know is that I would be a hypocrite if I tried to keep this up while ditching self-care, community, and was too exhausted to learn how to calculate a tube feeding appropriately.
So I'm going to hit pause on Breathe & Nourish - my website, business, and blog. I'm not going to try to do #allthethings perfectly like I wish I could.
Like a friend said her husband tells her, "[I] can't be superwoman."
For now, I'm going to lean into the present season. Which means being the best dietetic intern I can be, graduating, and passing the RD exam.
I'm so excited to show up next year, as a registered dietitian nutritionist, ready to combat our toxic culture.

Until then, may you continue to lean into what it means to connect to your body's wisdom. It's smarter than you realize!
May you breathe deeply and nourish wholly,
