It’s okay


I almost didn't choose this photo from my photoshoot


It was soft, quiet, and didn't have a power pose or large smile--anything that would shout: "I'm a confident cellist!"


But it's my absolute favorite photo from the shoot. Because it's the most vulnerable and real. It shows my love for this instrument.


The power of vulnerability and speaking my truth has been the only healing tool that has CONSISTENTLY moved me through moments that hurt my heart into moments that strengthen me. Vulnerability is that powerful 

It's okay to be frustrated

It's okay to feel ticked off and annoyed

It's okay to not immediately go into fix it mode


It's okay to feel sad

It's okay. It's okay. IT'S OKAY


You don't have to immediately make lemonade from the fruit that this season bore for you--sometimes the bravest thing you can do is just feel it and witness it


A season of okay is not enough to disrupt seasons of good and a lifetime of great for you --it'll pass ⚡️


Believe me, it'll pass
