And to ultimately strengthen our own confidence within ourselves and remind ourselves that healthy, expansive love and friendships do not require us to trade authenticity.
We understand they may have gone through hard things, but where they are is still important.
We start defining for what it actually is, finding ourselves again.
No one is going to give me the green light to start creating the life that I want to live. The power, agency and, strength has always lied within me.
I didn’t want to accept that the life I thought I was going to have in 2020 was no longer in my reach. I didn’t want to face the music that this is life as I know it right now. Whether that life came with happy, sad, angry, or anxious emotions I had to learn how to hold all of them with compassion and patience not only for myself but for those around me.
However, I trust that I will continue to show up authentically for those I love and for those I hold close to my heart because this is it. We only have this one life
The most important lesson I have learned is life is about choices. And I will continue to choose to see the world through a filter of hope and love.
