Promise to be so strong that you will outshine those who do not see your brilliance. Promise to be so free that no one can look at you and not see a beautiful, unbound life.
What has happened to you does not, and will never define you.
Remind yourself that you are the only person you need to impress or make proud. Make yourself proud.
Be a good steward of your resources by budgeting well and give generously.
The best thing about closing a chapter of your story is that there’s a new set of blank pages, ready and waiting for you to fill.
Let the past be the past, and watch ‘what could have been’ simply float away. Give life the chance to surprise you, teach you, heal you, as you willingly shed the heaviness that’s been holding you back for so long.
It’s time to see yourself as the wonderfully complex being you are—flawed but original, imperfect but beautiful.
You are fully aware when you are being manipulated.
You forgive yourself for the ways you’ve fallen short and learn to show grace to yourself, even when you feel unlovable.
Yes, you will get rejected. Yes, you will hit walls in your progress. Yes, negativity and self-doubt will be on your heels with every step.
