“Three things can not hide for long: the Moon, the Sun and the Truth.” ― Gautama Buddha
I think it’s often times easier for me to diminish my accomplishments and belittle my personal growth than it is for me to claim responsibility and stand proud of the energy & time I’ve put into cultivating this being: a woman who isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes is right and to take risks that lead her on crazy, unexpected adventures.
Over the last few months, I’ve been delivered some rude awakenings but have also manifested abundance in ways I never thought possible. And though this would align well with my philosophy of letting the good & bad harmoniously coexist because they are counterparts in life, none of it has been by chance or happenstance. I’m not a proponent of “everything happens for a reason,” I’m not even romantic enough to believe that the “universe has my back.” Even though these schools of thought are aimed at the same point, they still leave too much up for grabs. I have worked hard to train my mind as a servant for facilitating my higher purpose. I understand that this mental emancipation is a blessing and not everyone has the ability to self-empower.
Even though I feel like I don’t have my shit together most of the time, I am alive, I am breathing, I am well, and I am doing my best to create a world where others are free to do the same. And I can have guiltless & free satisfaction in that because I deserve to. The women I admire most are unapologetic, and I’d like to be one of them so here’s a start.
