I remember in high school, they asked us to set intentions for where we would be 10 and 15 years from that point in time.
At 15, the idea of being even just 25 years old seemed like an eternity away and felt like it would definitely be an age where I would hold all the wisdom in the world.
I wasn’t too sure what I wanted but I believe I wrote down that I would be living in California, in a big beautiful house, with a husband, two children and a dog. With respect to career, I said Graphic Designer or Artist or Architect (things that other people had said at the time that I should be).
Time passed, ambitions changed and the future became blurrier if anything.
At 25 I was in a job I mostly did not enjoy, had low standards for how people could treat me and was fairly miserable (and stoned most of the time). I did not have my life together, I did not have any great knowing and I felt even less prepared for what lay ahead than I did at 15.
It took almost another 10 years to be in a space where I do now know what I want, what my future may hold and recognise my value and have clarity around that. I now run my own business that I love, using my innate gifts and where I work with beautiful clients to further elevate their businesses and lives.
My head space and my respect for myself and my body is better than it’s ever been and I no longer move through life in a cloud. I have my moments and spells where I feel unsure but I now know how to refocus, reenergise and recenter on the path ahead.
Sometimes I do wish I could go back to that 15 year old girl and explain what was actually important for her growth. I wish I could show her her true potential. I wish she hadn’t had to receive the lessons she had and the ones that were to come. But I wouldn’t be here and the person I am now without them and without her as unawakened as she was.
