Learning to love myself, healing mentally and emotionally, overcoming childhood trauma, and even self induced trauma from past choices. Taking that long hard look in the "mirror" and realizing that in some cases along your life's journey, you were the toxic one... Evolving and growing into my ideal version of myself. Becoming the person who I always felt I was deep inside, but too insecure and concerned of others judgement to be unapologetically myself, is by far one of the hardest journeys I have ever embarked on.

I have started this journey many times and made great strides and progress only to sabotage myself and allow myself to get distracted, sidetracked and derailed from my progress and ultimately regress, too many times. I don't want to fall into old patterns and old paradigms that don't serve me anymore. I want to live my life happy and healthy and full of abundance, without fear of disappointing others and/or the fear of not being enough. I want to be surrounded by unconditional love and people who love, accept and support me not just for who I am today, but who I will be tomorrow, a year from now, and in all my levels of growth and evolution.

I am not the child you remember, I am also not who I was in my teens, my 20's nor my 30's. I am not who I was when I entered my 40's, nor am I who I was a year ago, a month ago, a week ago or even yesterday. Because even though I have fallen off track many times some growth and progress still remained. Like climbing stairs, even though I've stumbled and fell back a few, I always catch myself before I hit the ground. I dust myself off, evaluate where I am, where I want to go, then start climbing again!

I am on a journey to not only be the best version of me that I can be, I'm also on a journey to love myself unconditionally.

I just love her so much. She's also very right, and her words of wisdom should be heard. Too many of us look on the other sides of the fence instead of nurturing and building our own.

I know I personally spent many years comparing my life to others and feeling like I was a disappointment, that I wasn't doing enough or being enough or just not enough in general in others' eyes, which is a childhood trauma that I'm still working on healing from as many of us are. 

I stopped comparing my life and worrying about whether I was living up to others ideas of perfection a long time ago! However, those feelings of being a disappointment and not being enough still lingered because I wasn't being mindful enough of who I allowed to have access to my energy. If there is anyone in your life that makes you feel like you are a disappointment and/or not enough, family, friend, acquaintance...etc, please distance yourself from them. Because your mental health is more important than their feelings and if you allow it, they will slow your healing and progress to being your best self! 

My life is far from perfect, I've made my fair share of mistakes over the years and it most definitely has its ups and downs just like everyone else's, but it's mine and I'm going to make it the best life I possibly can and I hope that I can encourage others to do the same. Also, I AM enough just the way I am!

When listening to '101 Essays that will Change the way You Think' ~ Brianna Wiest, that I got for free on Audible by using one of my free credits, and it's exactly what you needed to hear.

It's like every chapter thus far was like she was referring to you personally and describing exactly where you are on your life's journey and growth! I really needed to hear and be reminded of all of it, very therapeutic for sure. The Universe putting exactly what I needed to hear, learn and be reminded of directly in my path to find!

Every time I get back on track and on the path I'm meant to be on things like this and so much more happens all the time. The amazing things and experiences that I manifest and attract to me are amazing and life changing. It makes one wonder why on Earth would I not only veer off this path but actively choose to stay off the path and sink into the darkest corners of my mind and emotional abyss?

That is of course a rhetorical question, I am already aware of the answer and am actively working on it. I'm just thinking out "loud"

If you haven't read and/or listened to this before, I highly recommend it!

This! After reading this page it sparked some thoughts, so I thought I'd share a bit. In trying to reprogram my thought processes to stop getting stuck on and dwelling in the negatives in this world, and any negative influences of anyone around me. I try desperately to focus on the things I love, and that brings me joy. I have no desire to focus on what I don't want or what doesn't bring me joy yet the mind seems to default there and to rewrite this programming most of us learned from the beginning is not an easy task. I'm constantly checking my thoughts and redirecting them. It definitely takes practice.

Recently I've been posting Halloween/Fall related posts on my personal Facebook. I know some of my friends don't appreciate them, but I also know based on my timeline, most of my friends feel the same way and I'm posting them for me and my like-minded people. 😉 The Ber months are my personal favorite time of the year, Fall specifically, and I get genuinely excited and happy to decorate my home for these holidays. Home decor is something I enjoy and holiday decor is something I LOVE. I have a tremendous mood shift this time of the year and I love to fully embrace that shift and live in that feeling. 

This is the time of year I don't have to force it, because there is so much for me to love, and find joy in. I know not everyone feels this way and that's okay, you have your own special journey to find what sparks love and happiness deep in your soul and it's up to you and you alone to pave your path. 💖
