Ya you. I’m talking to you.
Do me a favor…no wait… do YOU a favor.
Repeat this sentence 5 times: “”I am gorgeous. I am lovely. I am amazing.””
Go ahead. 5 times. Later you can do it in front of a mirror.
Because you are. THAT, my friend, is the truth about you.
Now maybe somewhere along the way, you may have believed a lie. A lie that someone said to cut you down, to make themselves feel better about their awful life, or maybe you endured some pretty tough bullying, or hate mail, or stalking or something that took you off Beauty Avenue, Glorious Street or Captivating Road. Did you?
And where are you now?
Wherever you are and whatever road you’re on, it’s not a Dead End and it doesn’t say No Outlet anywhere. It’s a road that connects to another road… to a different neighborhood, to a different town and to a different state. It’s a road with opportunities, blessings, new realities, rewritten stories. It’s the road you’re on right now, doing what you’re doing and if you keep walking and keep believing and keep digging deep into your soul to shine your brightest light, you will end up in a beautiful place. As you tell yourself, Every Day, that you ARE beautiful and lovely and amazing, and you journey forward, around the culdesacs, through the barriers, down the hills and beyond the twisty turns, you will see what lies ahead. You just have to keep going.
When you get tired and it’s too messy to see and everything seems to be stacked against you, remind yourself WHO YOU ARE. The Truth of you. The deep down, raw, babygirl truth. Because when you come right down to it, that’s all that matters.
Add some more words of your own to your daily mantra.
Wonderful, Magnificent, Stunning, Delightful, Marvelous, Smart, Outgoing……whatever you can add about your Truth….add it proudly.
Your God Girl
