Falling in love with the what it feels like to pursue my own soul.
Tonight I took a headfirst, no safety net deep dive into a space filled to the brim with people I don’t know in a place I’ve never been. I used my birthday money to buy a ticket, and gave up a night-out to go. I walked in tonight knowing I’d be fed and forced into conversation about things women don’t tend to talk about. That’s it. That’s all I had.
The #darlinglongtable turned into tears, cheers, and friendships all because we were given the opportunity to share what it means for us to pursue self care. And in an era (week?) like this, with so many around the world awakening to the truth that we aren’t, in fact, all okay with ourselves and how our lives are going... a conversation about how to *be* okay is so necessary it hurts.
Right now I’m sitting in my car feeling on fire to stay. To stay myself in a world where men might not agree with my strength. To stay open to new people, experiences, and ideas about life. To stay humble about the fact that none of this was made by my own doing (amen) and that holding onto quiet in a world full of hustle is worth learning (double amen).
No CLUE where life is headed, but as the youngest in a dinner filled with the most empowering women I’ve ever met, I’ve pretty dang excited for what’s to come. Thank you Darling for givin lil ole me a slice of heaven on earth !!
HEYO. I'm Chlo.
So the basic gist is I’m really just tired of comparing myself to perfect people on the Internet, when I know for a fact that "perfect" doesn't exist. This here is a snippet of my inner thoughts and tidbits of experience, based on my twenty-something years of good ole fashioned, really really messy life.
My wish is for this blog to serve the small voices inside all of us that might have forgotten what being honest online can look like. Leave the hustle behind you, because this here is about HEART.
