“If you don’t believe in yourself, you can’t ever believe in anything else. Doubting eats every single joy in life.” – Anonymous
My life today didn’t exist a few years ago. It took a nervous breakdown to finally release the belief I had of myself. My breakdown was not something I ever thought would happen- but after years of denial, years of bottling up hidden emotions, years of self-inflicted abuse, it all came crashing down on me. It was one of the scariest moments in my life. After the dust settled, I found myself completely exposed and vulnerable in a way I never felt.
I didn’t think I would be able to recover. I thought there was no way to flip the switch back on in my mind but I was so wrong. The experience allowed me to find myself – to find my voice… to find the strength. For the first time I really knew what it was like to believe in myself. I had to be stripped down of all the crap I had surrounded myself in order to fully step into my life. Since then, I haven’t looked back – and I couldn’t be more thankful! I found myself… I found what was really important…I found my voice! I learned you’re not living if you’re not believing in yourself – don’t waste another day just existing, you were made to soar! Step into your life and you’ll step into your joy!
Today’s Affirmation: I choose believe in myself from this day forward!
