It took me a while to get to this point of self-love and discovery.
And like many of us, I still have a long way to go. But I am proud of how far I’ve come, although at times it feels very small. I’ve experienced a lot of setbacks, then starting over and building confidence to then losing again. From marriage, motherhood and divorce, grad school, and tons of workshops, classes, MONEY. The unsureity of my capabilities has circled my life and kept me hostage to myself. To get to a place where I can own my mistakes and see myself, I had to be alone and not hide from myself. Thankfully partly due to the COVID pandemic I was ablate achieve it. Before the lockdown, I had big plans to take classes and travel and live! But as we were forced to shut in, I couldn’t escape myself anymore. It was just me, to see myself from the outside and inside for all that I am. Who I want to become has been my greatest teacher and I hold on to that because I am still developing.
I had learn to trust my intuition and I had to stop comparing myself.
