“Be a Unicorn in a field full of horses”
Karen is an ALM graduate, now training to be a Life Excellence Coach. She plans to empower souls with spiritual nourishment once completed and plans to follow up this course with learning permaculture and holistic nutrition.

My name is Karen, but due to my Unicorn fascination, some of my friends call me ‘Unicorn Queen’.

I’m not angry. I’m not depressed. I’m not anxious. I’m not jealous. I don’t feel worthless or undeserving. I no longer fear nor covet the strength of another to get me through hard times. I was all of those things, however, for the better part of 24 years. I was a weak and disoriented young adult, frequently lashing out at innocent people who crossed my path at the wrong time. I was a self-caged, ‘wannabe” people-pleasing mess of a girl. I desperately tried to tame the flames within my being and here I am now, trying to rekindle them!

Since I embraced the Hug Your Chaos movement, I’ve learned to embrace my inner wants and needs, to accept the things I refused to before. I tell people about the happiness I feel when I squish my feet into the mud of a riverbank, the serenity I experience as I dance outside in the middle of a thunderstorm. Instead of being embarrassed about my experiences and growth, I happily divulge my resulting new awareness from the moments I spent standing in the middle of a river, hands spread wide above my head soaking in the warmth of the sun’s energy and feeling the rush of the water pass thru and around my legs.

I believe in myself. I believe in myself as a friend and a daughter. I am cultivating relationships I had prior thought were impossible and reciprocating kindnesses I couldn’t have imagined would come my way.  

The gratitude I hold for our world is immense and ever-thriving. A year ago, I didn’t even know half of it existed.

I crave growth. I am capable of so much more than I have allowed myself to become and I can’t wait to fill my life with new things!

I now crave fear so that I can overcome it. Fear is now my best friend, endlessly testing my courage.
