The first page of my journal, written April 7th 2015 (one week in to living alone, in a new place, without my partner), is a proclamation of love, a declaration of no more bullshit, if you will.
And it struck me more now that I believe it did then. A true letter waiting for a future version of myself, needing it at a time when I feel like I am simultaneously moving forward yet my feet keep getting pulled back into the muck.
"My greatness is too valuable to be lost on those who do not see it. My value and worth will never be compromised, traded, or lost. Those who don't see it, don't deserve it. Those who do not value me do not get let in. I have too much to give. I have too much invested in my self and my desired experience. I value my journey too much to allow people to cloud or interfere in my greatness. Only greatness. Only ownership. Only passion. Only courage. Only confidence. Only clarity and conviction. Only bold. Only big. Those who do not have the same lens or speak the same language will not lead me to shrink or hide. I will remain. And I will flourish."
Can I get an AMEN?!
I have been feeling a lot of insecurty this week, as I have been overeating and gaining weight and looking for something to cling to.
This letter brought it all back to me.
Why not take a moment and let your truth be known to that part of you who needs to hear it the most?
When you can show love and compassion for yourself, when you can remove labels and boxes and barriers you open the limitless potential for goodness to come into your life.
The feeling of release and forgiveness is powerful and comforting, scary and awakening.
