Walking Proudly In Authenticity

When you think of being authentic, you would think that it wouldn’t be hard to do right? I mean, how difficult could it be to be yourself?

The problem comes with not fully understanding who you are. It comes with not taking the time to face what you’ve discovered about yourself along your journey. Frustrations surface when you tuck the discoveries away that you don’t quite understand, pretending that it’s not inside of you instead of exploring it. But it is…and it’s begging to be seen. 

Levels of Womanhood

Levels of Womanhood

I turned 30 last September and I have to be honest, I haven't really appreciated it until now. 

In all honesty, turning thirty freaked me out. I kept thinking about how my twenties were going to be just a memory, how I wasn't yet married, and how I wasn't exactly where I wanted to be in life. Time just seemed to be moving so swiftly. I wasn't ready to be thirty quite yet. What did being thirty mean anyway? 

I am...

...evolving.

And sometimes that means being pushed a few steps back while moving forward. When this happens, know that you will never be pushed back to where you started. Your mind has expanded, your heart has experienced much and it has endured.

A few steps back is not defeat. It is only a reason to push even harder.
It's a reminder that you have not yet arrived at your fullest potential.
It is a reminder that there is work still to be done.

Look at the bright side, you're still moving forward.
