I, like many, am guilty of forgetting to be proud of myself. In a day and age where it is so easy to compare our lives to others, especially on social media, it’s easy to sometimes feel like we still have so much to do. People around us are getting engaged, married, have kids, homes, are President of their companies, etc. We can always be better in our careers, relationships and work harder at our goals…that’s a given. However, I’m remembering the beauty of trusting the wait, even when it doesn’t make sense.. Success is perceived differently for each person. When I was a teen, I remember how notorious the word “conceited” was. All the girls used that word to define women who were confident. As an adult, with far more experience and knowledge, I’ve found “that girl” to be inspiring. There is a fine line with being arrogant and cocky vs. humble and proud. You’re beautiful- own your smile. You have a beautiful shape- wear clothes that make you feel good in them. I am here to tell you that it is ok to decide that you’re not going to settle for bullshit goals, bullshit people or a bullshit story. Every day of your life is unwritten and you get to choose how you’ll fill the pages. I’m also here to tell you that you’re not only going to get over whatever is holding you down, but at times, all you accomplish will scare the life out of you. Don’t let it. You deserve everything good that is coming your way. Remember, darling, the best revenge is to move on and utilize that strength that you have been given. Use it. Be your own definition of success.
