I am at a place amongst my spins around the sun where I really freaken believe in myself. To quote a little 90’s Savage Garden – “I truly, madly, deeply do”
It’s not until we’re tested, and I mean really squuuuuuezed to capacity that we realise if we actually have our own backs or if we are willing to fold and bow down.
I thought I had always been a little bit of a sassy spirit but it wasn’t until I was forced to step up and speak out and really put my cards on the table that I realised that I am so much stronger then I was giving myself credit for.
You see, I love me some signs and feels and I trust that I’ll always know when the time is right to do ‘all the things.’ I’m also a massive believer in jumping before you’re ready so I’m surprised that I actually ever get anything done.
I have come to understand that it’s ok to live a mixture of both in fact, for me it’s necessary.
Going through the last couple of months, having to make a choice I never thought I’d have to make, a beautiful IVF baby on the way, a hurricane toddler around my ankles and everything that comes along with that I’ve really had to know what I want, know how I want our lives to be and back myself with every ounce of energy that I can muster. Because if I don’t…who will?
I’ve heard the saying that we can’t always be STRONG, but we can always be BRAVE and I totally get that.
What I want to know is though, do you truly believe in yourself?
Are you willing to take your worth and your points of view to the stand and say;
“ HEY… OVER HERE… I KNOW I’M ALRIGHT, AND I’VE GOT THIS HANDLED… THIS IS MY TRUTH AND I WON’T BE SWAYED OTHERWISE”
That’s a powerful place to be and I didn’t realise I stood here until I had too, and I wonder how many warrior women are out there with me? SING IT LOUD!
I know you are a feisty soul because you wouldn’t be here hanging with me if you weren’t.
I know you have it in you but are you willing to declare it, back yourself and your worth 100% or as my dad would say “Until the cows come home”…because I will be right there beside you when you do.
If you aren’t there yet, start small.
Check in with yourself throughout your day and see if the internal chatter rings true for you. If you aren’t supporting your views, your stand points and are doubting yourself, ask yourself WHY?
It could be time to examine what you tolerate, take charge of your life and create a life that feels the way you want it to feel.
YOU are WORTHY!
How FEEL matters, and the only person who knows how that is is YOU!
Go forth and do some crazy epic shit with your day sweet potato, and back yourself all the way!
Love Katie. ‘
