This was quite some time ago. I didn’t notice the shadow until after I took the photo. But it looks much like I felt at the time. As though I was being swallowed by a “monster” of sorts that represented me. Having recently turned 30, I felt like I had woken up in someone else’s life. It was a life that I had single-handedly created. I was happy. I knew I was blessed. And I loved my life. But I had been so busy living my life that I forgot to get to know who I was as a woman, aside from being a wife and a mother. Mostly because I didn’t know who I was as a woman. And so began my journey of self discovery, getting to know my authentic self and what was important to me as a woman, outside of being a wife and mother.
It was a long, sometimes painful journey, but worth every tear, accomplishment and challenge. Today I know who I am outside of the other “hats” I wear on any given day. I thoroughly in love with and proud of the woman I have become. I am still a work in progress, I believe I always be. And I continue to look for ways to become a better version of myself.
Do you know your authentic self?
Do you love everything that makes you, who you are? Flaws included?
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
