Self Talk: 365 D6
I majored in business marketing. Before that, I made it a point to try all the new products, mainly skin care, as soon as they hit the shelves and before that I worked in retail. So as you may see, the early part of my life was surrounded by beautiful clothes, makeup etc.
Truth: I was trying to fill a void deep down inside by having all this stuff. I thought that if I was the prettiest, best dressed girl I would feel better about myself and my life.
I ended up feeling very empty and alone even when I was surrounded by a room full of people.
Throughout my 20s I desperately sought out acceptance from other people and still have a tendency to do that today. It is something I work very hard to avoid. Somewhere along the way I discovered that I really did not need all these things in my life to make me happy. I discovered that happiness is inside of me. It is in the people I choose to spend time with and the thoughts that carry me throughout the day.
Granted, I am a minimalist. So of course with that being said I do not need much, but the truth of the matter is you are not the car you drive or the house you live in.
You are enough, no mater what stage or chapter you are in. Be thankful for everything you have and everyone that makes you smile.
I am beautiful, I shine everyday, I am enough, I will have a wonderful day!
