“This is perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take – to be seen as we really are” -Cinderella.
In the start of this year I said
“I am ready to show the universe, that what ever hurdles life throws at me I will use them as a lesson and turn them into my superpower”
Life for sure took me up for that challenge 😅 but it gave me one of the best gifts it can ever ask for.
My inner voice❤️
My journey to self love has been a bumpy road with many pitfalls.
To hating myself, thinking I was Dirty, unworthy, a mistake & broken.
To understanding that I needed to go thru all of those feelings & situations to know how it feels like… & how to climb out of that dark hole. For one day I will be ready to accept myself for who I am & everything that made me, “the good” & “the bad.”
I had to learn how to deprogram old perceptions of how I should think, behave and feel to be accepted by society …
I am still making my way to my destination & some days are harder than others but it is for sure one of the most fulfilling feelings I have ever felt ❤️
I’ve learn to TRUST myself.
To FORGIVE myself, to give GRACE in moments where I felt I could’ve done or do better.
To EMBRACE dark moments & know that it DOESNT define me, what defines me is how I CHOOSE to react to it 🥺❤️ & most importantly is that I get to be my MOST AUTHENTIC SELF 🥰
With all of these lessons I believe I have found my purpose…
That being my true self (no filter, flaws & all) I can show others how to learn to love themselves too 🥺
Thank you to the amazing team behind this picture who shared with me their time,talent & expertise in helping me be one step closer to reaching one of my biggest dreams, I love you all so much.
I feel and look beautiful.
