Marge made it to 30!
I am beginning to love celebration in a way I didn't know was necessary. So in the spirit of celebration, I want to share something that has transformed my life, taught to me by the beautiful women in my women's group and I hope you can hold the space for me as I share a brag, a gratitude and a desire.
I brag that I have always put my family first. I brag this because when we found out in June my mother was terminally ill, I felt my whole world fall from underneath me. Yet with it came an underlying peace of knowing there is nothing unsaid between my mother and I, and no regrets of time not spent. So even during this time when she can no longer communicate sentiments, it's okay because we have always spoken openly and honestly (and if you know us you know we have our disagreements!) and tell one another every day we love each other. My mother is and always will be my unwavering constant, the most beautiful and selfless person I know and has shown me a love I only hope to give to others and strive to attain in all of my relationships. This has been my most trying year, full of heart ache and heart break - and my gratitude goes out to the village of women who have been there to hold me up when I couldn't find my ground. They have been there to accept my tears, my stories, my anger, my rage, my laughter, my silly, relentlessly wild self - and they receive it with love. Every day I am working on replacing my grief with gratitude - some days go better than others but I would not be standing if it wasn't for them. My desire is to harness everything I feel and channel it into my record. And yes, I am about to release my debut record at 30 - and hear me when I say I have never felt younger and more in my power. I hope it can bring comfort to those in a way that so many records have given me comfort during this time. I am so ready.
I would love nothing more than to hold space for anyone who would like to share a brag, gratitude and desire. May we manifest our magic.
