Hopefully you had a wonderful weekend!
“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” Hermann Hesse
This quote is so true as I can only speak for myself, that when I chose to let go of all the hurt, resentment, pain and anger not just towards those who’d wronged me BUT my self destruction, I truly felt empowered.
Those energies where so draining and took up so much of my creativity and willpower, time I can’t get back. Now, I can’t tell you that I don’t have my moments here and there, it’s not human for me not to; I just choose now not to live in them. I recognize when these emotions start to creep up, I acknowledge and feel them; then move on.
I don’t know if I’d ever told my mother in-love this, but she helped me with this tremendously.
On one occasion, I was having a conversation with her where I was trying to hold back my emotions on how angry I was about something. She immediately picked up on what I was doing and finally said, there is nothing wrong with expressing how you feel, show them, let them out, it’s ok! ….
You just can’t dwell in them for long. You must be able to keep moving.
(This is how I interpreted her words) this was one of the most inspiring moments of our relationship. Strong, empowered women helping each other, with no hidden agenda.
With that said, I really try hard to choose what energy I put on my blog because I believe in words manifesting. We are what we speak and I really am working on keeping that positive connection to yield good results.
“Empowered women empower women!”
Do I always accomplish this, I’m not sure but it is my intention and my goal to do so! No matter what society standards are, it doesn’t matter, what matters is how you feel when you look in the mirror. And I honestly hope you feel wonderful, strong, beautiful and if you’re not there yet; my prayer is that you get there soon.
Until next time nzuri, be well and know your worth!🥰😘
