How I Found My “Wild” Yes!
I love the whole “Wild Woman” movement. I love the thought of untaming and un-domesticating ourselves. It rings of strength, sensuality, courage and self-acceptance. It speaks of reclaiming our feminine power and no longer allowing society to dictate the rules for us. It’s women reconnecting with Goddesses and Mother Earth and living in alignment with nature and our own natural cycles. We step into our leadership roles with confidence and conviction.
But, although I adore the archetype, I never felt up to the task of embodying it. In fact, just thinking about it exhausts me. 😉 It didn’t feel like an authentic fit for me. Becoming a ‘Wild Woman’, from my perspective, entailed exuding a confidence I just don’t possess.
This bothered me for a long time. I wanted to be that woman. I longed to feel that self-assured. I looked up to her, admired her, even envied her. 😦
But over the years of learning to embrace my authenticity and my own gifts, I’ve come to understand that I’m more of a “Wild”…. child.
Though I’ve been told I’m an old soul, I feel more like a wide-eyed big kid most of the time. Maybe one doesn’t exclude the other.
To be clear, I don’t feel naive, not at all. I’ve experience a lot of crap in my life and even done, many, less than nice things. I’m well aware of the, for lack of a better word, evils in this world. But knowing them and even having experienced them in my life hasn’t hardened me. It hasn’t closed my eyes to the magic, beauty and good also in this world.
Yes, I can be strong, sensual, brave and/or protective, I can even be fierce when it’s called for but I feel my essence is made, in a large part, of humility and an unyieldingly defended innocence and optimism. I’m often shy and insecure, though I may successfully conceal it at times. I’m also an introvert by nature which has run counterintuitive to many of the life adventures I’ve chosen. But I’ve learned to embrace my paradoxical traits, my perfectly imperfect self, as it’s said.
Once I decided on “Wild Child” as a business name and a philosophy, everything seemed to fall into place. It became clear to me how I could make the best of all my strengths and quirks to serve others. It felt like the perfect fit. It felt completely ‘Me’. It felt like… coming ‘home’.
My site and business will likely evolve over the years, along with myself, but the mission and big why behind my business and life will never change. It’s been there for more years than I can count. It’s just taken me all this time to bring everything together, to combine all my passions, strengths and gifts into a cohesive business model of service.
This is something I would do for free if I didn’t need money to survive. 😉
I can’t express how grateful I am to have finally landed ‘home’. Not just with my business but in so many aspects of my life. I’ve had so much support along the way.
I’m so excited to support others on their journeys ‘home’.
