Full blown is a burst of power. It is a warning. It is a phenomenon. For the young, it is a precautionary tale. For others, it is a life raft. Full blown is for the girl at a crossroads and therefore it is for every girl. Every day from sun to moon we are faced with choices. Full blown is my gift to my teenage daughter, my nieces and all women.
My purpose is to remind, refuel and redirect the vision of self. I have found that stifling dreams and suppressing self worth quiets the beast, yet unsettles the soul. What you call sacrifice today, is actually oppression. It is the bridling of the little girl inside of all of you. That uninhibited little girl who wanted to run wild and rule the world. Inside she remains, caged, howling at the moon, haunting you and finally, one day, she emerges and with all her power, spins you, twists you, unsettles the pale version of yourself-- and that is the beginning of your journey.
In a reoccurring daydream, I am in a crowded room with hundreds of women. I am lifted above them and looking for another head up in the crowd. Does anyone feel like me? Anyone?"
FULL BLOWN — women on the verge.
Do you feel like an alien in your own life? Do you feel like a loose cannon? Are you making plans to change things in your life? Are you pulling away from loved ones and friends that don't know this side of you?
Perhaps you find yourself somewhere along the Full Blown Metamorphosis. Perhaps you have completed your own journey or are just now understanding what a friend or sister or mother may be going through. Full Blown creates change and with change comes consequence. We are reaching out above the crowd to let you know-- you are not alone. You are not crazy. To spread that message we are asking all Full Blown journeymen to tell their story.
