Saturday Strong – Nevertheless She Persisted

Everyone has hardships.
Everyone has obstacles.
Everyone has bad days.

That’s part of life… those not-so-good things {{hopefully}} make you appreciate the good things even more.

Those things only define you if you •let• them.

I’m no different. I’ve faced hard stuff. I’ve scaled obstacles. And I sure as shit have had bad days.

I do not let them define me.

No way am I letting a little not-so-good override lots of good.

‘Nevertheless, she persisted.’

Is that you? 💕

I doubt myself.

IMG_8966I tend to doubt myself sometimes.

And when I say doubt myself, I don’t mean a little doubt here, a little doubt there… much like everything else, when I doubt, I doubt HARD… I go ALL IN on the doubt. There’s no half-assing things for this girl, which is both a blessing and a curse, if I am being honest.

So when I DOUBT myself… goodness, DO. I. DOUBT. MYSELF. To the nth power.


Every day I fight the battle to keep limiting beliefs and self doubt at bay.

But here is my promise to myself – I WILL fight this battle. I WILL fall, and rise again. Every single time I doubt myself, I will remember what I have overcome, and I will keep going.

Truthbomb Tuesday – True Beauty is Internal

The most beautiful people are the ones who have KNOWN defeat, KNOWN struggle, KNOWN suffering, or loss… and have found their way out.

They have empathy, appreciation, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, humility, and a deep, loving concern.
Beautiful people don’t just HAPPEN. And beauty isn’t shown from the outside.
True beauty is internal.
