Hey AML people! I hope your week was great. I am wrapping our time here this week by discussing the importance of standing in your truth.
By standing in your truth, I mean know who you are, really. Have a deep intimate authentic love relationship with self and do NOT let anyone take that away from you. Do not give others permission to make you embarrassed or ashamed for/or of your journey and where you have been; whether they be family, husband, wife, inlaws, extended relatives, boyfriend, girlfriend, friends or what have you. You have done your time, earned the scars and you should walk tall, hold your head high and just be. Own your rightful place in the world. Make no apologies for your evolution, and your journey and just stand. Stand in your truth.
When you fail to stand in your truth, you disempower yourself, you also send a message to those who you have always encouraged to stand in their truths that it is no longer okay to do so. Unconditional love for self is the most powerful gift you can give yourself, and ultimately your family and the world.
I hope this simple note inspires you, if you are at a crossroad in your life, or you stare at yourself in the mirror and no longer even know who you are. Break the pattern, YES YOU CAN. Pick yourself up, and stand in your truth!
On a lighter note, when music lovers and creators get into a room to hang out, it is all sorts of fireworks! I am loving the video below of the Rapzilla 2013 Beat competition. Deliciousness to the Nth level. Check on it!!!
Wishing you all an amazing rocking weekend! Happy Friday.
My warmest of regards.
