“I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself. But for the rest of my Life, I am going to be with me and I don’t want to spend my life with someone who is always critical. So I am going to stop being my own critic. It’s time that I accept all the great things about me. The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.
You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself, is a second of your life wasted; a moment of your life thrown away. Don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.” Live IN Love.
If you are anything like me or the majority of women I’ve ever known, you relate to this wonderfully open and honest excerpt from C. JoyBell C. For the rest of our lives, the person we will share our journey with most is our own self. Your relationship with yourself, your True self within, is the most powerful relationship you will ever have!!! What kind of person do you want to spend the rest of your Life with??
I know I want to spend my life with a person who adores, challenges, enlightens, fights for, sees the good, LOVES all, Loves me and makes me the best me I can be….So that’s who I have to be. As I continue to evolve into the woman I want to be, I battle the good “Am I ever going to be enough?” complex, learned over years of enduring defeat, failure, mistakes and loss. But as I remind you, I remind myself…I am flawed; beautifully scarred and human:)) I do not strive for perfection but to use my imperfections to help teach and encourage the resilience that lies in each of us; to inspire you to see the light & LOVE that you ARE. Because, in the breakdown lies the beauty in who you are becoming and deepens the knowledge, expands your capacity to overcome and, most importantly, opens your heart to Love beyond any circumstance. To have lived & learned is the greatest gift to yourself and the world:) You are beautiful. Know this. Every scar, every curve, every line, every mark, every tear, every smile, every breath is yours, only yours. There is nothing more beautiful than YOU, because you are ONE of a kind … destined to leave your mark on this world. See, Give, Be Love and you will Be Loved, always!!!
Love You. .. so should you xx
