My Vision

I am now a woman of wisdom — trusting my intuition, total belief in my gifts and magic. I know myself to be beautiful and powerful, making a difference in this world. I have compassion and grace for myself and others. I know I’m not perfect and I don’t hide away from my flaws or punish myself for having judgements. I accept and honor who I am and where I’m at on my journey.

I know my self-worth — that I’m worthy and valuable, and so is everyone else. I am no better than anyone else. I have love for myself and others, seeing all in their essence. I can shine brightly along others.

With my boldness, I lead the way for other women, empowering them to find their voice and allow them to see that beauty comes in different shapes and sizes.

Being comfortable in my skin, I find strength to continue being authentic and vulnerable in a world that attempts to shy away yet craves human connection. I know there will always be people judging me, but I will continue to stand tall in my powerful stance. I will find from within — love and compassion for the critics. I feel freedom in that and inner peace. No longer am I working tirelessly in attempts to meet other people’s expectations of me.

I will continue to strive for a more equitable world, a fair and just world where people get what they need to thrive. We all need something different, so let’s work together to achieve that.

The intention of putting my vision out there for all to read is to hold myself accountable. Just before publishing this, I hesitated in fear of being judged for my writing, which is even more reason for me to publish it!!
