"You are amazing as you are.
Stronger than you know.
More beautiful than you think.
Worthier than you believe.
More loved than you can ever imagine.
Passionate about making a difference.
Be confident. Be you."
Tia Sparkles Singh.
Beliefs are what shape us. I think they fuel how we live, what we do, how we move in the world.
I used to believe I was a nothing, worthless, a total loser. It took a long time but I finally learned I was believing a lie. That lie felt so much like the truth. I ran on those beliefs. And almost killed myself with them.
I've been mentoring someone, a girl a few years older than my daughter. She's where I was....living wild, on the edge, out of control. I see the old me in her, the me who tried to outrun the shame, the pain, the hate. But I also see the girl who is itchy to be free...who craves an easier happier life. My goal - help her see the real her, just below the surface, the gift she really is.
-freedom - it's for everyone not just a select few.
-the past - gave me firsthand insight to help someone else make it.
-people who stepped into my world and helped me realize the opposite of everything I knew. Their kindness softened the rough edges and made a huge impact.
-Mostly that He was there, in the dark places, and the scary ones, never giving up on me when so many others did. He hung in, stayed the course, until I was ready, and even today....He's still there, running the course with me....my best friend, a constant, an anchor to hold onto.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
