Self-Trust Is The New Self-Care

Something I’ve begun to notice lately is how much your world changes when you start to trust yourself. In taking that one step forward, however small or gigantic, you tell yourself and the world that you believe in yourself enough to move ahead. ⁣⁣

When you do that? It’s like the universe takes notes, the ground shakes, and doors start to open everywhere from the quake. Maybe you don’t even notice at first. Maybe doubt is still distracting you from the vibration you just emanated. Yet, over time, opportunities in cracks that you created will blossom and bloom. ⁣⁣

Of course it’s still nice to get validation and affirmation from people you trust, but it’s transformation to be able to offer yourself that affirmation and let it be enough. To trust yourself is to know that you have your own back, no matter what is ahead. ⁣⁣

To trust yourself is to hear out your fears but give your dreams the mic. To trust yourself is to walk in your truth at a pace you decide. To trust yourself is to be your own home—a foundation you can always rely on. ⁣⁣

Something magical happens when you decide to trust yourself. It’s like the wind hears you and starts to whisper your potential to the rest of the world. It’s like earth opens up to create more space for your wildest imagination. It’s like the birds sing of your potential, and over time, the universe learns of your song, your truth. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

Yes, there will be detours. No, it won’t be easy. But trusting yourself means knowing these things and proceeding anyways. It won’t always be magical, but self-trust can alchemize any lackluster situation into a glittering opportunity—even if it takes time. ⁣⁣

So go ahead, take that next step toward your deepest desires and most fantastical wiles. Trust yourself enough to carve your path ahead and create more space for joy by letting go of the fears that shackled you to one place. The key is simply having the certainty, the faith, and the resolve to follow your heart. ⁣⁣

Trust it’ll lead you somewhere beautiful.
