🚕 NYC — Writer & Performer 🌈 Queer, Witchy, and 𝙤𝙗𝙨𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙚𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝘿𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙝. ••• Chronically ill & relearning life.
The truth is: we’ve been putting in 𝙖 𝙡𝙤𝙩 of work these days. 👭🏻❤️‍🩹⁣
⁣
Maintaining a relationship through trauma isn’t easy…🌪⁣
⁣
Nearly 5 years later, I’m still so in love with this woman. ⁣
⁣
But I’m learning to love who she is 𝗻 𝗼 𝘄. ⁣
⁣
⁣
We’ve had to do a lot of necessary, painful mourning over the relationship we lost this year.⁣
⁣
And we’re just starting to appreciate and be intentional with the relationship we’ve developed. ⁣
⁣
⁣
I’m constantly blown away by the way love changes. There’s so much I didn’t understand. ⁣
⁣
As @juliamichaels perfectly says: Little did I know. 🎵⁣

🎙 Nearly two years ago, I launched a business to teach Artists how to brand themselves & make money on their own terms. ⁣
⁣
I built three kickass programs that helped dozens of folks identify what makes them special, and then learn how to market that. 🤘🏻⁣
⁣
Now… *drumroll please* 🥁 ⁣
⁣
I’m officially taking 𝘰𝘧𝘧 my Coaching hat.⁣
⁣
⁣
My courses will now be offered all on their own — so you will still get that nitty gritty goodness to help you level up like a boss, minus the phone calls. ⁣
⁣

Walking out of the hospital with some good fucking news. ✨⁣
⁣
The tumors are stable, folks. ⁣
⁣
All we’ve gotta do now is pain management & ongoing monitoring. ⁣
⁣
So proud of how far we’ve come, this year… wow. 🥺⁣
⁣
⁣
So thankful for the superheroes at @lhh_neurosurgery & @nyproton ♥️ ⁣
⁣

And my own personal powerhouse, of course: @sumayamullacarrillo 💋⁣

𝘔𝘺 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘥 & 𝘴𝘰 𝘮𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘐. ⁣ 

These 9 months off work have given me a lot of things I never saw coming - including a forced moment of reflection on what I want to do with my life; what impact I want to have. ⁣
⁣
And it’s made me realize that I’m ready to make a pretty freaking H U G E pivot with my platform, my business, my mission. ⁣
⁣
⁣
𝗪𝗜𝗧𝗛 𝗧𝗛𝗔𝗧: When the time comes for me to announce the news, I hope you’ll all join me as we dive deeper into what it means to become ourselves and truly fucking *live* ✨⁣
⁣
I want to change the world, folks… and I want to do it right alongside you.⁣ 🌍

Something’s coming; something good.🤘🏻

Both Sumaya and I have always been adamant that we will leave situations that no longer fit us.⁣
⁣
We’ve left schools, we’ve left cities, we’ve left jobs. ⁣
⁣
But we’ve never left each other. ⁣
⁣
⁣
The last two years have been incredibly traumatic for us both, and we’re just starting to really feel it in our core. ⁣
⁣
We’ve been struggling a lot as a couple, which has been totally uncharted territory for us. ⁣
⁣
That being said: we’re doing our best. ⁣
⁣
We’re trying to redefine the rules of what we need, so that we can be better partners - but also better individuals. ⁣
⁣
I’ve loved this woman since our first date. ⁣
⁣
And though I’m about 100 drafts past that version of myself now, the adoration is still so very real.⁣
⁣
So here’s to a little time for us each to focus on prioritizing our own mental health.⁣
⁣
AND here’s to normalizing that for all relationships. ⁣
⁣

Sometimes, the Universe 𝗽𝘂𝘀𝗵𝗲𝘀 us into change.⁣
⁣
Whether we like it or not…⁣
Whether it’s comfortable or not…⁣
⁣
We are forced to grow & evolve, becoming versions of us that we sometimes don’t recognize. ⁣
⁣
With that: ⁣
⁣
I’ve been afraid to be radically authentic lately, because I don’t know this Sara Falaro yet. ⁣
⁣
⁣
But I am wholeheartedly working on it; working on understanding and loving the updated Me. ⁣
⁣
⁣
And that, my friends, is all we can freaking do. 🥂 ⁣

The old Sara Falaro died this year, and I’m just now fully feeling that…⁣
⁣
It’s like watching the building of your life go up in flames & realizing you forgot your family photos inside. ⁣
⁣
You are desperate to get back in there; to grab the pieces of the old you that you loved so damn much.⁣
⁣
But Death stands between you and the door. 💀 ⁣
⁣
⁣
There’s no going back, no matter how badly you want to.⁣
⁣
And that can be absolutely devastating. ⁣
⁣
⁣
Trying to navigate how to let go and move forward with who I’m becoming. 🌱 ⁣
⁣
And even if I have to stand here for a moment & watch the remnants of who I was collapse, that’s okay.⁣
⁣
I’ll walk again, soon. Changed. 🤍🤘🏻⁣

I wanted to capture how I felt this last year, through a deep, guttural scream. ⁣
⁣
Every single moment feeling like a punch in the gut - a forced transformation that I didn’t have a choice in.⁣
⁣
Like a witch burning at the goddamn stake. ⁣
⁣
Feeling herself explode into a body and a fate that was demanding to be felt. ⁣
⁣
And feeling it fully has made me expand into dust and ash, embers still glowing with rage. ⁣
⁣
And that, in it’s own way, is beautiful. ⁣
⁣
Because it belongs to me. ⁣
⁣
The Death of who I was belongs to me. ⁣
⁣
And that story must be told. ⁣
⁣
Because shame doesn’t live here anymore. ⁣
⁣
I do. ❤️‍🔥

⁣
Thank you to @sampickart & @sommerodonnell for screaming with me, and documenting it. ⁣
⁣
May we all have friends who feel our fury.⁣
