I just found out some things that were said by somebody that is so insignificant to my life and to the world I live in, that writing this post gives this person too much credit, but it was just the cherry on top of a melting ice cream sundae and bitch, I love vegan ice cream sundaes and so now I need to roar. My frustration isn't about someone talking about me behind my back, I'm not that petty-my frustration lies within myself. I realize I don't give myself enough credit for the things I've done, for the things I've achieved, and for the things that I'm going to do. I doubt, I have fear, I talk down to myself, I let people step over me, I don't create lines/boundaries, & I don't take care of myself the way I should in my work life and in my real life. I literally go with the flow and while that may work for some, I unfortunately am learning it doesn't work for me. Instead of waking up every morning putting myself down or thinking about all the things I need to do to be successful, I need to wake up and look in the mirror and say, bish you're capable, you're smart, you're talented, you have a good heart, and you will make it to the top in whatever "the top" feels and looks like to me. The unknown is so vast and so scary that instead of grabbing it by the thorns, I'm letting myself get lost in the mist and I need to remember that I'm not lost-I got this ish. There will always be obstacles, people who will grab your shirt to pull you down as you climb the ladder, but if the hunger is there & you're willing to fight, you will win AND BITCH I WANT TO WIN. So here's to not letting the man/the world/trolls/my ego/my overthinking ways to reign 🍻 cheers.
