To know oneself is, above all, to know what one lacks.
— Flannery O’Connor
Discovering myself and growing in my understanding of life
through the intricacies and complexities of the Enneagram.
Marinating in its wisdom
and finding much needed growth,
growth that I’ve been wanting and craving for, for so long.

Imagine meeting someone who understood even the dustiest corners of your mixed-up soul.
Continuing to explore the dustiest corners of my mixed-up soul via the Enneagram and beginning to see it as someone, an ancient, literary friend of sorts…
who’s helping me understand exactly who I am.
“Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic selfhood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be.”
— Parker J. Palmer

Working daily in the messy compost pile of my life.
Digging deep and turning it over.
Searching through the festering, decaying soil
for signs of life, death and resurrection.
Discovering that there in my dirt
lies new life.

Learning to understand that the wounds that come through life are sacred wounds.
They come to destroy my false self
to get me down to something deeper
a truer expression of who I am.
