I’ve been really looking at myself lately internally and externally and reflecting about the person I became based on everything I was taught I should be, do, have, want, behave, look, etc. and I realize I became someone who I am not. So these past few years I have been peeling back all the layers that aren’t the true Chela. I still have more work to do. It’s a very disorienting process, but I am feeling more and more like me — the me I want to be for me! I feel grateful and vulnerable because I am no longer the person people knew me to be, like it or not.

This image from Jasper National Park by Mark Jinks really speaks to me!
