You have a beautiful, empowering and freeing choice to make β˜€οΈ

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

– Chinese Proverb

All the mistakes you have made in your life, all the wrong paths you have taken and all the negative experiences you have been through need not affect your present or your future. It is easy to get caught up in shame, blame and insecurites when you keep bringing up the past. However, that was then – this is now. You still have a beautiful, empowering and freeing choice in each new moment – how do you want to feel NOW? And that has to be unconditional. 🌼

Now is where all your power is. You can change your entire life, and you can begin now. Make peace with what was, accept what you cannot change and embrace this new moment by allowing yourself to feel better, unconditionally.

From raging insecurities to strong empowerment πŸŒΌ

“(…) Can you hear the whispers all across the room?
You feel her eyes all over you like cheap perfume
You’re beautiful, but misunderstood
So why you tryna be just like the neighborhood?
I can see it, I know what you’re feelin’
So let me tell you ’bout my little secret
I’m a little crazy underneath this
Underneath this
Do you ever feel like a misfit?
Everything inside you is dark and twisted
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I)
Do you ever feel like an outcast?
You don’t have to fit into the format
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I-I-I-I-I) (…) “

Ava Max,” So am I”

No matter what you look like, what body type you have or what clothes you have – people will look at you and some will judge you. There will always be those who love the way you look and those who completely disapprove of everything that you are. Let them think as they choose to.

The beautiful part about life is when you finally give up trying to please everyone else, when you finally shake loose from caring about their disapproval or approval. There is so much freedom and empowerment to be felt when you start giving yourself the love and approval you previously tried to get from other people and external things.

It is a process. It takes time. I began working on this 12 years ago, when I was 24. I have come such a long way, I went from having no self esteem what so ever, from feeling like a helpless victim and feeling I had to please everyone around me in order to deserve to be liked a little – I went from all that to really liking myself, inside and outside no matter what other people think of me. I began to appreciate life, to appreciate all experiences – especially the bad ones because they helped inspire me to now become stronger.

I would not even be the happy, confident and empowered woman I am today without every single bad thing that ever happened to me. So I am grateful, for all of it. My entire way of viewing life is 100% different from how I viewed life 12 years ago. If I can change all these limiting insecurities, anyone can.

And no, the external things didn’t change before I felt better. I still look exactly the same way as I did before, I have the same job, the same relationship, I have still gone through all those awful things in my life that left me on the brink of despair – and I have since then gone through even more negative experiences in all aspects of my life. And yet here I am, happier and stronger than ever. Loving life, loving my body and feeling appreciation for every step along my way. Feeling appreciation for every rascal that ever hurt me because I am who I am today because of it all. It is an endless journey that I intend to enjoy. πŸ™

When you have been brutally broken by life and yet you rise up and find your inner peace πŸŒ±

It is easy to be happy when life is good. It is easy to call yourself strong when life is smooth and easy. But true strenght is when time after time you have been brutally broken by life and you have been totally stripped of all your joys and passions, and yet you rise up and find your inner peace once again. That is strenght and that is inspiring. 🌱

Love is the miracle cure that can heal even the most wounded of hearts and the most scarred of souls β€οΈ

β€œLove is the greatest healing power I know. Love can heal even the deepest and most painful memories because love brings the light of understanding to the darkest corners of our hearts and minds.”

Louise Hay

All the things you have been through, all the hurt, all the pain and all the injustice. Everything that once brought you to your knees in despair and everything that still haunts you daily – it can all heal with love. Love is the miracle cure that can heal even the most wounded of hearts and the most scarred of souls.

Learning to love yourself is the most important change you could ever do. Learning to love others and all of life will come natural to you once you begin to love yourself unconditionally. It starts with you and how you feel, and you can do something about that.

How you look at the situation matters more than the situation itself πŸ₯°

Peace is a state of mind. Nothing in your life needs to change in order for you to feel better, other than your perspective.

How you look at the situation matters more than the situation itself. How you look at the situation is the differences between allowing the improvements or not. It all begins and ends with your mind, your perspective – your thoughts.
