My Journey of Self Begins

I found a book

Not just any book,

but a book about embracing

one’s dark side

figuring out why we secretly

derive joy in

standing in piles of shit

while pretending they don’t exist.

I am ready-

highlighter in hand-

more than ready

to do this work

to take back my power

to embrace my scary shit

to find out why I secretly like it

to bring the ego

and conscious minds together

instead of being

a victim of myself.

I’ll listen to a wise man who said:

Until you make the unconscious, conscious, it will rule your life and you will call it fate.”

– Carl Jung

So raise a glass to my new journey

I’ll update soon…

    • I have always loved Carl Jung. His philosophy made the most sense to me. When I opened the book and the author started off with a quote from Jung, I was in hook, line, and sinker. Now, I’m glad I listened to my first instinct. I am anticipating a life-changing experience out of this!
