Stepping fully into the wild.
I had suppressed my voice for ages. For a long time it felt like a superpower. Silently holding space for others. Keeping the peace. I learned that my appearance of external calm reassured others and I was praised for being ‘good,’ easy, agreeable, and level headed. Which of course morphed into perfectionism.
But inside. I burned.
My desire for authentic self-expression was strong but acting on it – uncomfortable. Drawing attention to myself, by just being me, felt vulnerable and needy. And I wanted to, and had learned to, be seen as strong and having it all together. Growing up, I was surrounded by people doing the same thing. Playing it safe, keeping it all together, and I now wonder if inside they too burned?
So, I began to segment myself. The perfectionist, wound tight, holding it all together. All while the creative, fluid expressive version of myself desperately wanted out. There was a core burning desire to be my true self. But I had no idea who that even was because I had never allowed her to develop.
So I began to explore the edge spaces. The spaces, in the study of ecology, where human impact and wildness collide. I wanted to know who and what survived and thrived in those spaces – half wild. I was, of course, looking for a way to thrive in my edge space – authentic but safe/controlled. I tried on many roles while exploring the edge – logging/spotted owl researcher, wildlife rehabilitator in urban spaces, and ultimately trying to be a primary care doctor who was also a naturopathic doctor. Never fully choosing a side. Always compromising just a little – but why?
Then, I was shaken out of the edge space and fully into the wild by the loss of an important person in my life. What was I afraid of, always standing on the edge? Half in and half looking for an escape in-case I revealed too much about my ‘true self’ and people didn’t like what they saw. Was the compromise worth it?
I decided to change my path, my trajectory.
I cultivated a community of genuinely supportive women. Women who hold me up, help me live in alignment with my core values and help me embrace my wild woman. As a result, I am braver and healthier than I thought possible. And life is richer and much more fun!
My story is the reason I am bringing The Wild Collective to Bend.
When we are empowered to step into our authentic selves we thrive, we have a drive to create, we pull other women up, we disrupt, we change. I know that if women understand and trust their bodies, and each other, then we can better step into our chosen roles in life or be empowered to completely change course.
I hope you’ll JOIN ME in the wild!
