Healing from the heart
I am not a writer. I don’t use a lot of fancy words and poetic prose but my thoughts and words are genuine and come from my heart. I share them in the hopes you will be brave and share too. Everyone has an important story the world needs to hear. It is scary to let yourself be vulnerable but sharing can also be very healing. I decided to be brave with my life in the hopes that others can be brave with theirs.
Have your ever wondered if you are the only one? The only person who struggles with self-doubt and self-worth? I decided to stop trying to be perfect and start working on becoming the best version of myself. Instead of striving for perfection I strive for progress every day. I am truly a happy person. I love life. I am very blessed. I have spent most of my life striving for perfection. Along the way I had experiences that affected my thought process and ultimately planted seeds of self-doubt, body hatred and an internal struggle with self-limiting beliefs. I have been on a journey of self discovery to find out why I feel that way and change my story. I decided to re- write the story and tell myself the truth. What lies do you tell yourself?
Did you know the longest journey of any person is the journey inward? I decided to take a trip. A really long trip to becoming the person I was meant to be. That means I have to work on me. I have to be willing to get uncomfortable. I have to lean into the pain to bring out the joy. I do feel God is with me on this journey and is guiding me along the way. I decided I was worth it. I was worth taking care of, investing in myself enough to live my best life. My wish for you is you will do the same. Invest in yourself so your life is filled with joy, love, and amazing things!
God steps into the darkest parts of our lives, offering rescue and hope. This is a promise He will fulfill ultimately in Jesus. God has brought me here and I hope you will find some comfort and peace in my story.
I will bring short stories of humor, sadness, joy and pain. I now laugh at myself and some things that brought so much pain. I have grown. I really think that is what God wants. He wants us to trust him, lean on him and grow through the challenges we face. I am inspired every day by friends, family and people I meet. You should never compare your journey with another. Own your own story and be willing to allow it to shape who you become. You have a choice. You can let it lead you down a positive path or negative road. You get to choose.
Stay tuned for the bits and pieces. I would love to hear your feedback, I think. Lol, seriously, we are all in this thing called life together. We can be stronger together!
