If you have been following my instagram feed (find me on instagram here) this last weekend, you would have noticed that I was at a conference. SNAP was amazing in so many ways.
I will share more, as I learned so much, and there was so many AMAZING sponsors! But today I wanted to share with you what I learned about me! I learned that I deserve a voice, that I am great, and that other people have some of the same insecurities as me.
I hope thru this blog I can inspire you to be happy, and to understand no matter what has been done to us, what we have gone thru, that we can make a better life! We all deserve happiness, we all deserve to be respected. I hope I hope you find something here, or anywhere that will make you realize how amazing YOU are. Just for being you, and that each of us is enough, and that in this journey of life, we all can be happy, inspire others, and help others.
Each one of us as a gift, each one of us has a story. We all have struggles, we are all human. I try and remember this everyday, I hope that everyday, I learn to be kinder to others, and smile more, give more hugs, and give genuine compliments.
As I have embarked on this journey of telling my story, I have been very apprehensive, there has been loss involved, hurt feelings… A LOT of not great things, but also GREAT things have happened because of it as well.
I keep saying I will post more, but I keep getting scared.
Because of my weekend at SNAP and spending time with so many amazing bloggers I left feeling refreshed, appreciated, counted…. and that my voice should be heard.
Then today I read this quote:
“And then the day came
when the risk to remain
tight in a bud,
was more painful
than the risk
it took to blossom.”
– Anais Nin
And that my friends is where I am at.
Love you all, What is holding you back?
