"I will no longer act on the outside in a way that contradicts the truth that I hold deeply inside. I will no longer act as if I were less than the whole person I know myself inwardly to be." Rosa Parks
It's been a long road to get to where I'm at.....a journey of many ups, downs, side-roads and detours. There were times I believed people, and situations would destroy me, but they actually ended up doing the opposite. They empowered me to stand up, stand tall, and be me.
I struggled with who and what I was - always wishing to be somebody other then me. I believed something was wrong with me, and that I wasn't good enough, bright enough, pretty enough, capable enough. Those beliefs were all lies, deception but I accepted them as gospel truth.
Being me is what those hard lessons have taught me. There's nothing better. Being me, accepting all the good, bad and ugly parts that make up me, gives me the freedom to move in the world with confidence.
Grateful today for all the tough times. They had purpose. Didn't know it then but sure do now.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
