Fall is my favorite time of year…
Okay… Okay… For Sure – I’m a summer kid… surfing, sun, sand, music, and outdoor gatherings is who I am, but there is something I love about Fall. Maybe, it is that you see actual transformation occurring right before your eyes.
It made me think about my own journey throughout the years. You know, when we find ourselves less than perfect, the place where we find our failures, when we tend to be #broken and cracked open – These moments suck! But I believe in these hard times are also where true foundation happens to springboard authentic transformation.
We all want things to stay the same – settle into living in the advantage and familiar because we are afraid of change. I look back over my life knowing when I struggled, and made the decision to be brave enough to walk alongside my own fear of change … something magical happens… I evolve in some way. “It makes me think that maybe my life hasn’t been so chaotic, it is just the world that surrounds me that is, and the only real trap is getting attached to any or all of it…”
Maybe transformation is the beginning of something unknown….
Throughout my journey, on tour and even living in Denver away from all that is familiar (home, salt water, sand, my surfboard, friends, and family.) – it has taught me that we must always be prepared for endless waves of change and transformation –
It is upon accepting that “change” is the only constant and being “pliable” is the goal; this is where I truly feel the work on the inner soul can begin – most of the time – a journey we take alone.
As I walk the streets of Denver, I see transformation everywhere. It reminds me of the beautifully broken pieces that fall away during difficult times, allowing us to evolve as a human, and it is where we find comfort in the difficult and hard moments of life that awakens something magical about to rise.
