I was put on this planet to show you that no matter WHAT you’ve been through, you can create a reality that feels like magic. And to be the best person to show you that…I had to go through a lot.
After growing up in a household full of abuse, feeling singled out and alone as one of the only women of color in my elementary school, and feeling helpless as my mom battled with cancer – I desired and prayed for MORE for my life. I felt like I must be a bad or undeserving person…why else would these bad things happen to me?
And for many years, I dealt with it in all the wrong ways. Looking in all the wrong places to fill a void, starving myself to fit into ‘beauty standards’, being my own biggest bully plaguing myself with hateful names and negative self-talk, and constantly feeling extreme anxiety, and loneliness in a room full of people all at the same time.
I felt trapped in a string of jobs I didn’t like, relationships that didn’t value me, and never reaching what my potential really was, because I was trapped in my old identity of never enoughness. One day, I had a moment of self-reflection.
