Life hasn’t always been like it is now…
I used to spend every day, just going through the motions…putting one foot in front of the other.
I never felt like I was valuable. Like I mattered. …like I was understood. I tried to find validation in the eyes of others…
I was often depressed or anxious…
I pasted a smile on my face and pretended like everything was great…
I didn’t know that there was more…
The saddest part is that I tried to be who I thought that ‘they’ wanted me to be. I didn’t know that I could be myself…be all of me. All of my imperfections and awkwardness and awesomeness…that makes me unique.
…and it would be ok.
I didn’t know that I could be bigger, be all that I am….and that I didn’t have to play small.
But, I found my answers…and realized that putting myself first was ok.
I pulled myself out of the dark…
I started living again.
It matters more to me, that I am true to myself. Because trying to be what I am not so that I don’t make others uncomfortable, is not okay.
I am happy. I am ok. I am more than that… I accept myself…all of me…all of the good and the bad. That makes a difference.
Happier than I ever thought possible. More in line with what I am here to do and the impact, I will create.
I love my life. I love my life so much, it makes me weep.
Because I know that there is more.
You are more powerful than you know.
I see you.
The one who hides behind a smile but is screaming on the inside.
The one who is struggling, who doesn’t feel worthy.
Who cries every night. …or never at all….
I see your pain and your frustration and how lost you feel.
And I am here to tell you, there is a light. It seems so far away but my friend, I promise you that it’s there.
That light that lies deep within you, has the power to change everything. You don’t have to live like this. You can be happy.
You are beautiful, and you are worthy of it all.
