The Solution is in the Starting

What’s going on people!

As the owner-operator of Amethyst, I've come to understand a profound truth: solutions are often found in the simple act of starting. Today, let's delve into this transformative principle, exploring how taking that first step not only propels us forward but also nurtures our mental well-being along the way.

In our pursuit of healing and growth, it's easy to get caught up in the grand vision of where we want to be. But let me share a secret with you: the magic lies in the journey itself, in those initial moments of courage and determination when we decide to embark on something new. Check out these three ways I move from planning to start, to starting:


Mindfulness is our compass on this journey. It's about being present in the moment, fully immersed in the here and now. As we start something new, let's anchor ourselves in the present, allowing it to guide us through each step of the process. Through mindfulness practices like deep breathing, meditation, and body scans, we can cultivate a sense of calm and clarity, even amidst life's chaos.

Moving Through Difficult Emotions:

Starting can be daunting, especially when faced with difficult emotions like fear, doubt, or uncertainty. But here's the thing: emotions are not roadblocks; they're signposts pointing us towards growth. Instead of avoiding or suppressing them, let's lean into our emotions with compassion and curiosity. By acknowledging and honoring our feelings, we create space for healing and transformation to unfold.

Honoring Your Mental Well-being:

As the driving force behind our digital private practice, I am deeply committed to fostering a space where mental well-being takes center stage. I've witnessed firsthand the transformative power of starting, of daring to confront our innermost struggles and embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing.

So, my fellow travelers, I invite you to embrace the power of beginnings. Whether you're starting therapy, pursuing a passion project, or simply taking a moment to prioritize self-care, remember that solutions are often found in the simple act of starting. Together, let's embark on this journey of growth, resilience, and self-discovery, knowing that the path to healing begins with that first courageous step.

With gratitude and anticipation,

The Mindful Maya
