She who is brave is free.
Something I thought that was just a physical aspect.
Yet I was clearly mistaken. I have now come to terms that strength is also within the mind and soul.
The meaning of strength had changed so much to me throughout the years.
If you were to ask me four years ago I would have said. To be strong, to be able to pick up something heavy.
Then time changed, I slowly started to see that strength also comes within.
Strength is in the mind, strength is in soul, and strength is in the heart.
Being a birth-mom molded me to be stronger.
I let everyone’s negative outlook on me affect me. I let their toxic lies of how “weak” I was define me.
Yet it took me this long to finally knock down that wall and see how strong I really. My worth. My self love. My happiness. My struggle. My life.
I’m thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength.
Inhale. Exhale. Inhale the good. Exhale the bad. Clear the mind from all negativity and embrace love and strength within.
I’ve been beyond vulnerable the past couple days. My heart trying to fight the lies my mind is trying to feed me. Sometimes the past comes rolling back in like an Oklahoma thunder storm in the middle of the summer.
when I have dark gloomy days; I have to remind myself that I am human I am allowed to have set backs.
I have learned to not be afraid, that it’s only temporary. I’ve done it before and I can do it again.
Move, moving helps my body and mind stay empowered.
Talk, I have learned that anxiety held in has more power. Stay with people, call someone. Even if it comes to saying my feelings out loud even if no one is listening.
Breath, I have to dig deep and remind myself that I am loved, just breath, I can do this,I am strong.
Feel empowered. Keep telling myself that I can overcome this.
One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change. I am strong. I am brave. I can do this. I can and I will.
“She who is brave is free”
A quote that has been stuck with me for the past six months now. A quote I didn’t get till I learned that I needed to let go. I needed to break free and be my true self. I’ve learned that sometimes we need to take all the time we need to heal emotionally. Moving on doesn’t take a day. It takes a lot of little steps to be able to break free of your broken self.
I noticed I have started to embrace life, beauty, adventure, courage, hope, bravery, and faith.
I adore these things now.
I no longer say “I can’t” for I now say, “I’m hurting, let’s find a way to heal now.”
The voices in my head use to lie to me. Use to tell me I wasn’t brave. Use to tell me I was weak, I wasn’t loved, I wasn’t going to be something in life.
It’s not about people cheering me on, it’s not about people giving me the satisfaction. It’s about me knowing down in my heart, soul and mind that I am brave, that I am strong, that I am free.
I reject negativity now. I have learned that I need to embrace positive people, with positive attitudes, mind sets, goals, who embrace life and its rawness. The lies have slowly stopped and don’t take over anymore.
In the past I tried to support myself mentally and emotionally and I failed miserably. I failed because I was still broken, I was still in so much pain I didn’t know what to do. Nothing was good enough in the past, no compliment or encouragement. It kept me from living life.
I slowly started to accept me for who I was, it was at that point where I forgave myself for all my wrongs, started to learn self-love. I became brave. With brave wings I will fly.
