I have experienced things, and felt them so profoundly, that they have completely changed the way I show up in the world. And how I deal with life's struggles. I am not a damsel in distress. I am a powerful, loving, nurturing, strong woman. I have weathered storms, and come out stronger and more compassionate. I am a beautiful soul.
I give permission to myself to be imperfect. To not have it all figured out. To not really know what comes next. And not know how to be in each moment, but to show up for them anyways. To try. I might not be for some people. And they may not be for me. And that's ok. Keep trying. Keep showing up. Do not dim your light or self love based on where other people are on their journey. We all have a journey to complete, and we're not all at the same place! You won't know unless you try.
Be yourself. Be genuine. Be love, be acceptance. Check your expectations. Show up and try over and over again. Do not let other people take away from what you have to offer, to the right person. Do not stay jaded. Do not stay angry. Do not be spiteful. Take your time, and reflect often to see what you really want and where you really are, and go from there.
Do not stay busy. Take the time to own your feelings. Check them. Honour them. Anchor yourself, to yourself. You need you first, everything else is a bonus.
Do you like yourself? Are you proud of who you've become? Do you know your worth? Show up as her! The woman who knows her worth. The woman who is at ease in her body. The woman who cares and accepts herself and those around her. Be the woman you admire!
And forgive yourself when you show up short.
