Meagan Adele Lopez is scared every single day that she will be a failure. Then, she reminds herself that doesn’t actually mean anything. Sometimes her ego gets ahead of her, someone tells her she’s going to be a revolutionary and she believes it for a second. Then, she gets back to work, stays focused and does something new. Then, she becomes frightened again that she will lose everything and everyone will hate her.
Then, she reads Brené Brown or Elizabeth Gilbert or Glennon Doyle Melton and all is good with the world. Sometimes the medicine is meditation. And yet other times, it is just simply dancing until dawn.
Sometimes she wants to disconnect from society and the internet and live in a hut in the mountains. Other times, she wants to own five houses in Sydney, Paris, the mountains, Baltimore, and Los Angeles.
She moved 12 times by the time she was 12 through 6 different schools and four states. As an adult, she has had to navigate 7 cross-country moves back and forth between America to London, England and Paris, France where she now resides.
She is one who believes that life is short, and to box yourself into one image is to narrow your view of the world. Don’t let them tell you otherwise.
