Hello my dear,

Because I can’t seem to leave my heart out of these emails, I would like to share that Luanne and I are officially divorced.

Clean Food Dirty Girl will remain a priority for us, and the business will continue as usual. Thank you for being part of this community and welcoming me into your inbox each week. You are so important to me.

Things might be messy and uncomfortable, but there are some beautiful things that have come out of this as well. Experiencing such a wide range of emotions is not always easy, but it’s definitely fascinating when we have the presence of mind to simply pause and be curious about what’s coming up.

Like everything, I know this rough patch won’t last forever, and I am confident that gold awaits on the other side for both of us.

From my current perspective, here’s what I want to share with you:

When you’re afraid to feel an emotion, and you’re willing to feel it anyway, that’s freedom.

When we’re so afraid to feel a certain way that we refuse to feel it, we bend, twist, turn, and make choices in order to avoid that emotion at any cost, even if it costs us ourselves.

What if we were open to feeling an emotion even when we’re trembling and terrified? What if we stopped letting fear make choices for us? If fear didn’t have an influence on your choices, what would you do differently?

I am no longer allowing fear to call the shots and make me bend, twist, or turn.

Hell yes.
And that’s okay. I’m here for it.
