Yesterday, I was smacked with a truth about myself that was a great “Aha!”, but didn’t feel so great in my body.

This realization sent me on yet another journey of self-discovery. I have been a willing participant in self-abandonment and self-abuse. So here is my personal statement on the matter:

I create my reality intentionally. I show up for myself in every situation. I am a badass. I choose to #livefree of old thought patterns that didn’t serve me well
