Meet Haley...

HEY. its me, Haley — 25 years old, born and raised in CT, curly hair, brown eyes (maybe green depending on what I’m wearing that day), athlete, girlfriend, daughter, sister, animal lover, devoted friend, passionate human and I’m just trying to find my way, my purpose, just like all of you. Now don’t get me wrong, I am many, many other things (things you will absolutely find out as you get to know me) but that’s me in a nutshell..

right NOW. I have my DREAM JOB. I’m the girlfriend to the most AMAZING woman. I’m the HAPPIEST and most CONFIDENT I have ever been in my body. And I have STRONG and HEALTHY relationships with my friends and family. Thats where I am right now — BUT HOW you ask…

but HOW. Well before I spill all my beans, let me just set the record straight…what I just said above sounds pretty perfect, right? I am by no means perfect and life is never perfect. I don’t want to be perfect. I am continuously progressing and changing and adjusting and learning and failing. Thats HOW I am who I am today — through the good, the bad, the messy, the extraordinary the devastating and all of those in-between moments and experiences that get us to where we are at this very moment.

say WHAT. Well here goes nothing — WHAT got me to my current state of being — two broken ankles, a severe eating disorder, 12 college rejection letters, 2 surgeries to repair what couldn’t really be fixed, being OK with quitting a sport that shaped much of my identity, feeling misunderstood by almost everybody, therapy, struggles with my sexuality, 4 SoulCycle auditions, many unhealthy friendships, 2 absolutely dreadful desk jobs that I hated and really no idea what my overall purpose was in this world…

and WHY. first I’ll tell you this…I don’t know that anyone can have one true purpose on this planet…I think we all serve many purposes and all of those purposes sum up to be us. A one-of-a-kind human being that is doing its absolute best to be its best. Now of course, in the middle of all that ugly I described above, there were triumphs, successes, happiness, healing moments and other positives that I will definitely share…but I want you to understand that the NOW will not and can not happen without the HOW and the WHAT. ALL of it makes you who you are and sets you on the path you’re destined to be on. Trusting the process is only the beginning. 

— I cannot wait to share this journey with you!!

Talk soon,

Haley <3
