So here’s my rant for the day—and it’s not about shaming you.
It’s about EMPOWERING YOU!!
I see so many posts about this ELUSIVE PERFECTION, and negative comments — and how it’s egotistical to desire it, let alone proclaim it.
So humour me will ya……chew on this for a moment.
If I were to say:
- I’m not smart enough.
- I’m not pretty enough.
- I’m not brave enough.
- I’m not capable.
- I’m not beautiful.
- I’m not…..I’m not….I’m not………
See my point??
I’m not good enough is not a mindset that any of us should carry any longer!!!
I spent a lifetime feeling like I WASN’T—–any of those things above.
“If you’re so smart, why didn’t you get 100%?”
“If you’re so good at it, why don’t people pay you for your services?”
“The reason you are never invited anywhere is because nobody likes you.”
“Must be nice to be a stay-at-home mom and not have to support yourself.”
“Did you notice you’re gaining weight? Maybe you should go on a diet, or walk more”
“What’s going on with your skin. Maybe you should wash your face more often.”
“If you have to live here, stay in your room so I don’t have to look at your face.”
Do you know what this does to a child—-especially when it never stops no matter how nicely you ask for some peace??
I was born with fierce determination, strength, courage, and a very giving, kind heart.
I am loyal. I am honest. I am smart. I am capable.
But there was also this little, frightened voice inside of me that said—-“oh, but what if YOU AREN’T?”
Light versus Darkness….internal conflict……self-doubt…..loneliness……all very real struggles that I have been fighting and I know I am not alone in this.
Through a lot of soul-searching, losses, and defeats, I made up my mind not to let the bums get me down.
But….. how to crawl my way UP from the PITS OF HELL that I have lived in for so long?
I decided to confront the negative evils–requesting kindness—and when that was denied I took matters into my own hands and said enough of this shit, your shit, anyone’s shit….heck, enough of my own shit!!
Enough negativity. Enough sorrow. Enough angry tears.
I have made it my mission to proclaim POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS, repeated as many times a day as I needed, until I began to believe it.
Am I an ego-maniac for finally identifying and owning and proclaiming my own worth??
Well if that’s how you see me, then perhaps you need to do some healing of your own, for kind hearts learn to recognize and appreciate other kind hearts—and there is no room for negative judgments or unnecessary rejections.
We are all wonderfully made. We are all worthy. Isn’t it time we help each other to heal, empower each other, lift each other up….and proclaim the truth?!!
I am PERFECT JUST THE WAY I AM—–AND SO ARE YOU!
Own that shit…..and don’t let anyone dim your light.
Hand them some shades and carry on……
PERFEXION IN MOTION and nothing’s going to stop me 💖
