Long post... hang in there with me... There’s something extra that is included in my job that I treasure. I love what i do & helping women feel more confident, but I also love to spend the time with so many different women & hear their stories & learn more about WHO they are. With this comes a lot of laughs, sharing similar stories or experiences, but it also brings a lot of emotions. I can’t COUNT the amount of times that I have cried in my chair working on someone. Face mask, gloves, blade in hand & all. EVERY SINGLE DAY I hear stories of abuse of every kind, deception, trials of infertility, heartbreaks of children, loss of loved ones, struggles with self esteem & self worth, challenges with addiction, feelings of loneliness & depression, broken relationships & families & the list goes on. I just want you to know I HEAR YOU. I often come home from working completely drained mentally physically & emotionally. I think of the women I meet & their stories more often than I can even share. I guess this post is mostly about letting you all know that your strength is admirable. Your determination is heroic. Your beauty is so much more than outward appearance. The way you all continue to get up every day & fight for your children, your loved ones, your relationships, your goals & your future is truly remarkable. PLEASE don’t forget to fight for yourselves too. Don’t forget your worth. Don’t forget all that YOU bring to the table. Don’t let ANYONE (including yourself) make you feel LESS than. If you are needing an extra boost right now or the extra willpower to keep going or stand up for yourself, I hope this is it. I hope you can feel that behind this post is a woman who is carefully choosing her words because I am a woman who has also found myself many times in the DEPTHS. I’ve been there. My heart has been broken & my life has felt shattered & over many times. I have been on a road of self discovery & self love for quite some time now. I’ve learned SO much about who I am & what I have to offer, & when I forget I am so grateful to have someone who loves me enough to remind me. So if you don’t have that let me be the one to remind you. REMEMBER & CHANGE YOUR GAME!
