Self love comes in many forms but one of the ways is knowing when you need to let go of habits that aid in your downfall. You know what is best for you; you get daily signs, it just about putting it into practice.
I hope that you get there in your journey. Your future self is waiting to start walking along that purpose driven path. Don’t be afraid to heal because healing looks good on you.
I committed myself to address the stuff that keeps holding me back from flourishing. It turns out once I started, there were so many things that I learnt about myself. I started thinking a lot more about my toxic and positive traits. I realise I’m a beautiful soul just confused by everything that happens around me. I feel so much that it becomes too much to process, and I shut down. I have to come to notice that the entire universe responds through stimuli, a feeling. Embracing this and implementing it has been one of the most significant steps in my life.
This time forced me to change my perspective on my life as well as rest. I’ve been pushing myself so much to achieve my goals, I neglected self care. Now as I have the downtime, I will focus on myself so that I can achieve more because I can’t give to others when my cup is empty!
No matter how crazy you think life is, you are absolutely making it work. You get up every day to power through with a brave face. You seem to be able to figure out what needs to be done even though it seems daunting. With all the challenges, you seem to be working through it.
You are organising your life through all of that and you should be proud of that accomplishment. It is time to stop comparing yourself with others and work on outdoing your past self. We need more beings dedicated to the cause of self love and finding one’s purpose. You got this and don’t you forget that.
With your face to the sun and dreams bigger than your smile. Five years feels like yesterday and many moons ago at the same time. That independent, smart and brave eighteen year old girl determined to change her generation’s pattern and discover herself. As I reflect and tears roll down my face, I want you to know I am proud of the woman you have become; you earned it. There was no way of knowing where the trajectory of your life would take you but ultimately it has brought you here to this divine moment. Don’t stop writing your story. Pen the details of the power of letting go, the grit of persevering and the freedom of forgiveness. Pen the lessons of love, failure and growth. Pen your journey of learning, being and becoming Daniella- Enough.
With love, your self. ❤”
I met Daniella at a conference I wasn’t even met to go on. We connect instantly and even got to go snorkeling together. We lost touch, but reconnected when I started my blog while inspiring her to recommit herself to her blog. It’s a pleasure knowing her, as she is brave, determined and happy!
It’s been two months since the beginning of the year and it’s time to check in:
How have you been?
Is your (mental, physical, spiritual, emotional) health ok?
Have you been saying your positive affirmations?
Have you been remaining positive?
Have you been accomplishing the goals you have set for yourself?
Have you been consistent with your objectives?
Have you been blessing the world with your magic?
Have you been loving yourself wholeheartedly?
Have you been tuning out the negativity?
Kudos to you if you have. I’m happy that you know your worth and you’re willing to maintain that level of consistency. I know there are days when curling up in a ball is the easiest thing, but you choose to go out there to shine bright. Remember you inspire people, so go out there and be that boss.
If you haven’t, there is still time to be your best self. You don’t have to wait until the end of the year, you can do it at any time with the right mindset. If you don’t feel like you are being pushed in that direction, it’s time to change your environment. Everyone is tasked to find their purpose in life; the longer you wait by engaging in distractions the further you are from your happiness. So do better and be better for your future self, success is waiting to be intimately acquainted with you. Sending positivity your way!
I meant to write this intro for the longest time; However, I didn’t feel it was the right time until now. As you may have seen on my blog, there is a section about this topic. I’m going to dive into different times where I should make peace with my past self. I feel it is time to forgive myself for setting the bar so high then guilting myself when I didn’t accomplish those tasks.
I learnt it is ok to go at my pace and that I determine when the speed/intensity increases. Comparing myself with others only made my self-esteem plummet. Getting older and experiencing so many things made it so important to be grateful for my existence on this physical plane. It is imperative to focus on embracing the positives even though it is minuscule in my eyes (so, therefore, it is so much more).
Waking up and returning home daily should be cherished because the uncertainty of death hits home so many times. I learnt to give myself time to be happy, to be sad, and being a workaholic, time to rest. I pay attention to all the signs that are presented by the universe. I am a creator in my own right so I intend to create things that will aid in the world’s blossoming. I now trust in myself to trust in the decisions I make. Overall, I need to know myself so I can take on any challenge I encounter.
