For me, 2019 started out pretty turbulent but I was determined to be resilient no matter what came my way, how tough it got or how many hours of sleep that I lacked. I learned that self-love is key to confidence. I truly began to love the woman in the mirror, despite my flaws, fails or embarrassing moments. I realized that my self-worth doesn’t change by how many goals I accomplish, simply by being me, makes me enough and worthy of happiness and goodness.
This season I’m stepping fully in to authenticity and confidence. I’m doing the work to manifest my dreams and not letting my fears and doubts get in the way. As I approach year 29, looking back Over my twenties, I am grateful to my past, the people who’ve made an impact in my life for their support and encouragement along my journey. I’ve learned so much about myself and I’m proud of the woman I’m growing into and where I’m going.
