Dear you, the person outgrowing their life….

Hey you, 
I’m amazed at what you’re doing. 

You really are truly brave. 
It takes so much courage and bravery to change your life. 
To admit that you aren’t happy or satisfied in your present circumstance. 

and hey, it’s more than ok. 

That discomfort that you’re feeling is you outgrowing yourself. 
You shedding a layer of your skin. 
You taking off a layer of you that has gotten you to this point, but you just don’t need it anymore. It’s too many layers to bring with you. 

Where you’re going – you don’t need it. 

Heres the thing. 
This isn’t for everyone. 
But it is for you. 

Its for you because you have a much bigger purpose to attend to. 
And that purpose is calling your name. 

The discomfort that you feel is just going to get louder and louder as the time goes on because it’s screaming at you to notice. For you to make the change you have been dying to make up until this point. 
And yes, it’s scary. 

It’s scary because you are choosing to do something you have absolutely never done before. Thats bravery. 

It’s so unexpected and so unknown, your human brain can’t event grasp the changes that are going on inside of you. 

And yes, that takes bravery but it also takes patience. It takes patience because much like how Rome wasn’t built in a day- neither are you. 

You are finding ways to express yourself in new ways every single day. 
You are finding out who you are and who you want to be. 
You have all the answers within yourself. 
It’s a lot. 

And man, I’m so proud of you for all you’ve already shed. 
For how much you have already grown. 
Look. You aren’t the same person you were last year, and you’re not the same person were yesterday. 

As we grow and change we begin to relearn and meet new parts of ourselves. 
We start to outgrow certain friendships, jobs and places that you once called home.

Thats okay. 
Thats more than okay. 

Change is inevitable, so that means you are too. 

Life has this funny way of showing us things. 
It pushes us so far into corners that we somehow seem to back ourselves into resisting change. But not this time. This time you’re letting yourself flow. 

And trust me I know, I know how hard that is. 
It’s hard because you more than likely don’t have the answers you seek. 
It’s hard because you’re jumping off the cliff and hopping for a smooth landing. 

Because jumping into the deep end brings up all of your worries, all of your concerns, all of the things that scare you to death. All of the things you’ve been told NOT to do…. here you are doing them. 

I’m inspired by you. 
It’s people like you who change this world. 
It’s people like you that show the rest of us how possible it is to change your life if you really want to. 

Life is funny. 
It’ll push you in a corner… if you let it. 

Maybe you’re learning you don’t need to be backed into the corner after all. 
Maybe this time you look at that thing that scares you and you say EFF IT. 
You jump in and scream and smile the entire way down.
Maybe this time you find excitement in the transition. 

Maybe this time you know that you’re ready because it scares and excites the pants off of you. 

Look, I can tell you’ve been outgrowing yourself. 
I can tell that the life you once loved no longer excites you. 
I can tell that that makes you sad. 
I can tell you don’t understand why. 

I understand thats a hard pill to swallow.

But the truth is you’re doing everything you’re meant to be doing. 
There is nothing wrong with you for changing your interests and passions. 
There is nothing wrong with outgrowing where you are. 

You have learned all there is to learn there. 
You’re ready for the next level of your life. 
And THAT is one of the most beautiful things about this humans existence. 

It’s one of the most beautiful things about your generation. 
You have the power, the ability, the opportunity to BLOOM wherever you choose to plant yourself. 


The freedom in that is a breath of fresh air. 
I know you feel stuck. 
I know you feel guilt. 
I know you’re unsure of how this is going to go. 

But trust yourself. 

Trust this next step that will be given to you, because it’s the step thats going to change your life. You are so supported and I’m cheering for you loud and clear over here. 

You have so much power to do this. 
You have the capability. 

It’s going to look different and feel different. 
You are rewriting your story. 

And I know thats scary, but it’s oh so inspiring to watch you have the courage to change your life. 

To watch you step into the unknown. 
To watch you put your past in the past and step forward without knowing what comes after this. To watch you become the person you have always wanted to be. 

No matter how long it took you to get here, look….. you’re here. 

You’re at this moment that you’ve been wanting to get to.   

You’re outgrowing yourself, its beautiful. It’s messy and of course scary. 
But you’re ready for this. 
YOU are so beyond ready. 

Take the step. 
It’s about to change your entire life. 

ps. babe you got this. xo
