Aug 22, 2015 I was signing a marriage certificate.
Aug 22, 2018 I just signed my first lease for my first solo place in Arizona.
I wish I could take credit for the funny timing. However, that was all Universally organized. The surprise of brand new carpet pushed my move in date ONE day over to land me here and now having a little reflective moment about how my life has transformed into something unrecognizable.
I had no intentions of being here.
I didn't know I had dreams this wild.
I never explored them.
I didn't even entertain them.
3 years ago, I said "I Do" to marriage, motherhood, and maxing out in the midwest. I wasn't just an "I Do." I was a "HELL YES" to that white-picket fence vision I had. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Never was.
However, when that fence got bulldozed, I used the pickets to build a life raft. It kept me afloat during some tough times. It kept me above water while I got myself back together and set out to sea. I went from choppy waters to clear blue ocean....all the way to the West Coast.
3 years later, I say "HELL YES" to myself.
I say "I Do" to my potential.
I say "I will" to my hearts whispers and tugs.
I say "I am" to my gifts and purpose.
You may see me down from time to time but you will never see me out. I may have quit a lot of things but I will never quit on myself. I may have given up people pleasing but I have built a life that pleases me.
This self love empowers me to empower you.
This awareness fills me up with enough energy to light up Los Angeles! The discoveries I am making in my pursuit of positive impact are immeasurable and undeniable. And I will not deny my greatness ever again.
I beg that you don't either.
Every moment you question yourself is another moment that you have denied the world the love that it needs.
You are f*cking great.
I mean it that. much.
I love You.
I love Me.
I love Love.
