Cloth of Confidence.

Morning of love in the mirror.

Cloth of Confidence.

Another day, another chance.

Who knows what it will bring.

Excitement. Love. Adventure.

The best cup of tea or the worst. I wonder what it holds.

It’s been a good couple of years on my journey of a changed life. The beauty of transformation, the whirlwinds of change and healing, all gifted to me from the depths of life.

I have come so far. When I first set foot on this path I had no idea the deep waters my heart had to swim to survive its own healing. And still it beats. It beats because it is not done doing it duty to me. Now that I know better, I live with such happiness and joy. There is an adventure in every. heartbeat. I am so grateful. So happy.

I’ve grown so much. I’m so proud of who I’ve become. I used to crawl into a hole at the first whiff of fear. I’ve learned to use my voice.

I let my heart speak.

My mind is free.

My feet are no longer chained to a life of fear.

I can move on, take big steps forward.

I haven't forgotten who I used to be. She is just as important as who I am now and who I will be. I have learned to love, accept and forgive myself and have decided to do to the same to others. Show them, lead them and prove to them the glory of self love. I believe there are people out there who are looking for healing and I choose to hold their hand and walk beside as they find their way to the light within them.

No matter my failures I am still good enough.

More than enough.

Not meeting the standards of society

has been my greatest accomplishment yet.

Obstacles still show up and so do I,

with all my strength.

Challenges meet me now and then and I dive right in

with all the courage I gathered over the years.

I can do it. I can live the life I’ve always dreamed of. There are people who don’t agree with my choices but I’m not living to please anyone else.

I am worth all my desires and more.

I have a purpose and I wish to fulfill it with all my heart.

I have infinite power within me,

waiting to be unleashed out into the world to bring

my grand life and big dreams alive.

I haven't forgotten who I used to be. She is just as important as who I am now and who I will be. I have learned to love, accept and forgive myself and have decided to do to the same to others. I want to show them, lead them and prove to them the glory of self love. I believe there are people out there who are looking for healing and I want to hold their hand and walk beside them as they find their way to the light within them.

You, out there, I have a message for you.

You have so many questions floating around in your head and you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders. What you don’t realize is that you have the answers and the solutions too.

You have what it takes to live life on your own terms. When you stop comparing yourself to others, you will no longer feel small.

When you stop following the crowd, taking cover in the norms of society and hiding in the shadows of others, you will see all your greatness and it will rise like the morning sun.

By recreating yourself you can design a new map with new routes, roads and rules. Your whole life will start blooming. You have infinite power within you. Once unleashed, you will live as your most authentic self.

But you can’t give up. You will have days when you feel like it’s hard, it’s impossible to bring the vision to life but giving up only makes things harder. Once you start the journey, you can go slow, but you can’t go back.

This is your life. Live it in the most beautiful way.
