When I looked around me yesterday, took a sip of my champagne, I felt the universe embrace me. I felt like I was doing what I was meant to do, and being who I was meant to be... despite the journey it took to get to this point...
I felt GLEEFUL + FULL OF GRATITUDE.
That being said, scooch up a bit closer to me because I have a message.
If you’re thinking to yourself that it’s impossible to achieve, YOU ARE 100% WRONG.
If you’re wearing fear + doubt like a neon straitjacket + telling yourself that you could lose everything, YOU ARE 100% RIGHT.
And if despite this knowledge, you’re still willing to put it all on the line + take life by the cojones, YOU WILL succeed! Because the scary, scary truth is that TIME on this planet is beautifully fragile + fleeting and we cannot allow our inner peace, happiness + houseplants to play 2nd violin for another freakin’ moment.
At the very least, you need to know that you did EVERYTHING you could. SO DON’T STOP.
You’ve come a long way, but you can go further. Incredible things happen when you keep going. While you’re on a roll, keep pushing + keep building. If you stumble, it’s OK to shed a tear, eat a cupcake, or have a few “So-Co & Lime” shots. (Trust me, I've been there... done that.)
WHATEVER ... just keep going. Because guess what? YOU ARE doing a really, really good job at life. Like, dynamite. (So keep it up.)
And for those times when you’re feeling less than DYNAMITE, I have a little something to help you shed that neon green straitjacket + quell those voices in that pretty head of yours.
Craft your very own mantra in honor of YOUR inner peace, happiness + well... INDEPENDENCE DAY (weekend)!
Complete it. Frame it + make love to it. Because you deserve it!
