be yourself

Often times, our own insecurities are to blame for holding us back. The lies that we tell ourselves (you’re not pretty enough, you’re not smart enough, no one will care what you have to say) keep us from pursuing our dreams, getting out of our comfort zones, and becoming the woman that we want to be. What limiting beliefs do you have that are holding you back? It is so easy to listen to those thoughts and limit your life. No one wants to be embarrassed or to fail. But, your heart will continue to push you. What would it feel like if you actually did it? What would it feel like if you actually went for it? Whatever your “it” may be.

And then one day it just clicks…
You realize what’s important and what isn’t. You learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself. You realize how far you’ve come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that they’d never recover. And then you smile. You smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become.

In a world where you can be anything, be yourself.
