Okay, true confession.
Aside from finally realizing my own success with the new store opening in LA, the other big life lesson that came out of my recent shift in perspective is my own self worth. Wow, I cannot tell you what a powerful concept this is. To be able to choose myself first instead of secretly hoping and waiting for others to see my spark. I know it may seem surprising for me to even being saying this but you have to take into account that we’re all having so many more thoughts and feelings internally than what others are actually seeing.
For as long as I can remember, I’m talking back to grade school years, I’ve worked hard quietly in the background, playing by all the rules, secretly hoping for others to see me, like me and recognize my gifts. And don’t get me wrong, a lot of people have celebrated my gifts but, I haven’t been comfortable fully sharing them without a permission from others (and sometimes a little bit of wine) first.
So here I am, 30ish years later, finally done waiting for others to see me before sharing myself. I’m ready to own the space I take up in this world and fully express the gifts that I’ve been given. My priority in this new chapter is my authenticity. The love in my heart and the wisdom I’ve collected is too big for me to keep bottled up inside any longer ✨
