“Women are like glow sticks. The ones that shine the brightest are the ones that had to be broken somewhere in their journey towards finding out who they really are...”
This isn’t a famous quote.
It’s something I had jotted down in my diary a long time ago, but the comparison is resonating with me today, as I sit down to write a New Year note to my growing Belia Isza community of strong, empowered women.
True empowerment does not come from the outside world validating our worth as women. It’s us, who have to validate ourselves, accept ourselves, forgive ourselves, and love our `inner child’ in spite of all the external forces that may try to convince us otherwise.
Self-love is life’s most precious gift of all.
But it is a hard-earned gift that often does not come our way until we are faced with challenges -- be it emotional or situational -- that break our spirit, steal our optimism and compel us to give up on ourselves.
There are two ways of dealing when we find ourselves at crossroads like these.
We either settle into a mindset of inadequacy that keeps our thoughts, feelings and self-image stuck energetically in a low vibration because it’s the easy way out.
Or we allow ourselves to grieve and heal from the experience, and then use it as a springboard to catapult ourselves into a brighter, better future.
A future that we welcome with self-knowledge and inner clarity because from the ashes of adversity are born a new tribe of truly empowered women every single day. Women who have won the gift of self-love and self-acceptance the hard way.
Let’s resolve to make 2019 a transformational year when we refuse to carry old wounds and baggage from the past. Let’s value ourselves, our desires and our ambitions first. Let’s surround ourselves with positive people who will support and encourage us in this journey. Let’s imagine, believe and manifest the wonderful year we all truly deserve.
You know why?
Because you are a butterfly and it is time to fly towards everything you ever wanted
Blessings and best wishes for 2019, from my heart to yours...
