I used to spend (read: waste) a lot of time wondering if I was #worthy of the things I wanted, instead of considering if they were #worthy of ME.
For a myriad of reasons, one of my early beliefs was that asking for things to be the way *I* wanted them to be was an outrageously selfish idea.
I’d be seen as ungrateful for doing it, and hoo boy! There was NOTHING worse than being ungrateful.
I moved through the early part of my life always watching for ways and jumping at chances to alter myself and zip my lip in order to promote harmony, keep balance, and support peace. While harmony, balance and peace are certainly #worthy causes, they come at too steep a price if they cost you the ability to stand up for yourself.
It’s important to be able to use your voice when you need it.
I now know that there’s no need for me to stuff my sparkly self into anyone else’s definition of what a...
...looks like, because what I innately and authentically bring to the table is #worthy of its place by virtue of its existence.
What I now believe to be right and true is this: not only is each and every one of us absolutely #worthy of a life we looooooove, we have every chance to make it so.
We create our environments, we allow our circumstances, and we teach the world how to treat us.
We can and should always begin by deciding what is #worthy of us, and then allowing the rest to gently fade away.
It's because I love you that I'm wishing you many upcoming moments of remembering just how #worthy you are, of ANYTHING your beautiful little heart desires.
