Why "The Untamed Priestess"
Starting up a new business is hard, which I'm sure isn't news to very many of you. Yesterday I had one of the hardest days I've had in a long time. There was crying, depression fueled sleeping marathons, lack of food. It wasn't pretty. Today I've come to terms with the fact that these tough moments are the things I may be looking forward to as I build a business, as I live my dream. As I was sobbing and arguing with my wife, one of the things that bubbled up from the depths of my anxious, and depressed soul was "I don't really have any dreams." I realize now, that that's not true. I have dreams, but none of them are easy to achieve. I have goals, but they'll take me years to accomplish. That's what being untamed is all about, to me. Having big goals, and big dreams, that may not seem possible today, but are so right in the very essence of my being that I have no choice but to follow them. Bringing authenticity and raw, real voices out of women who have stifled them. Standing with my fellow LGBT folks as we beat down waves of oppression. Fighting hard against big corporations that are fucking up our eco-system in whatever way I can...those are my goals and dreams. Dismantling the toxic patriarchy that this society has built around us, brick by damned brick is what I was put on this Earth to do, and that's what I'm going to keep pushing for. Sometimes I just need a reminder, which is why I named myself and my business The Untamed Priestess. Wild, raw, untamed, feminine spirituality is what's going to get us out of this mess. I hope you'll join me.
