The past few days have been completely filled with life. In fact I have not felt so alive in so many years.
I’ve spent time treating myself to a much better version of me. Taking myself on hour long power walks, taking in deep breaths, focusing on gratitude, and I’ve even been including situps, squats, and weight lifting.
The first few days I went on my walk I set out knowing that there was absolutely no turning back.
At the end of the night my body began going through changes feeling pain that I’ve never felt before.
Opposed to using my pain as an excuse to discontinue this journey. I decided to pray and use my pain to push me even harder.
I realize for the first time in a long time what it’s like to love me and practice self Love.
I embarked on this journey because I wanted to feel better about myself. In fact I wanted to change the things about me that I knew I had the power to change.
It’s taking me a long time to build up the courage, and take these very drastic and bold steps.
One thing is for sure I am never going back to holding myself captive. Never going back to being bound in chains that I myself have the tools and key to unlock.
This journey is turning out to be so amazing. I’m learning more and more about myself with each day that passes by.
I’m learning to be with myself, and to know what its I like. The more and more that I push myself the more I shape myself into who I’m becoming.
Learning the art of self Love.
