I used to be scared to really spread wings and fly. Not because I did not have what it takes but because the people I spent a lot of time with where at a level I could no longer see myself there. I wanted to take everyone with me that I started with. I could not understand why I spent so time in fear of them no longer accepting me.
“You are under no obligation to be the same person you were a year, a month, or even 15 minutes ago. You have the right to evolve.”
As I began to evolve I started to learn new things about myself that I never discovered. I was able to truly embrace who I was and want I wanted out of life. As I continue to embark on this journey here are a few things I have learned along the way
IT was okay to want more for myself without feeling guilty.
For a long time, I struggled with people’s opinion, due to being bullied for being myself. Or trying to fit in when I was born to stand out. The more I evolved the more my voice got stronger. I began to truly trust myself and I became my biggest cheerleader even if that meant standing by myself. See the truth is We (meaning I) had the power to choose what I want. Nobody else has that role or responsibility so own it.

I started to really enjoy my own company
I have always done things on my own, but at one point in my life I found myself limiting myself and missing experiences due to fact, if no one was available to come enjoy them with me. When I started to truly to evolve, I made it my business to enjoy the things that I once put on the back burner because they were not interested. What I have learned is that I truly enjoy my own company, and this was a great opportunity to meet new people. I started going to conferences and traveling alone and it is truly amazing.
I began to love myself on a deeper level
This was a rewarding but a painful experience. To truly start loving myself that meant that I had to face the things that was painful or that I also sweep under the rug. Out of site out of mind right. WRONG …. Girl if I had it my way I would skip that step and head on over to happy lane. The love you have for yourself is one of kind and worth the investment.
Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like your love yourself. Love yourself.
If we were meant to stay the same how would we really grow. You owe it to yourself to become and maintain the best version of yourself…
Have you evolved recently? what have you learned so far?
