The past 5 years that I have attended our annual convention I have left with a renewed sense of excitement.
But this year, this year I came home feeling a little different.
The truth is, I never really knew my authenticity. I didn’t know the “true“ Tina living inside. I discovered that vulnerability was truly the antidote to the shame I held tucked away. Vulnerability brought self-esteem, self love, and self worth. Vulnerability helped create the healthy mindset I dreamed of. The peeling of the layers I have shed the last 4 years brought confidence I didn’t know I had. I have connected with an amazing tribe and I have unleashed the successful woman entrepreneur inside! 🙏🏻💋
We change the world by LIGHTING UP and NOT APOLOGIZING for being brilliant and beautiful and smart in whatever way that looks like for us.
SHOW UP AND OWN YOUR MAGNIFICENCE.
There is ZERO place for someone holding you back and for someone that motivates you through fear, backlash, blame, shame or guilt. There is NO place for someone telling you there is only ONE way towards success, happiness and accomplishment. Nope!
“If people really knew,”....I find myself saying that from time to time. 😐 I know some people read my posts and think I am confident and have my shit together. ❌ Not always the case. There are days when I feel completely broken/insecure 🤕 and second guessing everything and then there are days when I feel unbreakable/unstoppable 💪🏻 and on top of the world. 🙌🏻
Do I still hear the doubt monsters? Yes, I hear them but they will NEVER stop me! And that is what I want for you too. Don't let that shit paralyze you!! You have WAY too much to share and offer the world to get caught up in the cycle of doubting and second guessing yourself.
One day you will truly realize how much beauty you have inside of you. How much capacity, and light and strength you have and one day you will realize how many people you can make a difference in the lives of when you are true to yourself.
I used to struggle to get out of bed every morning, and would often hit the snooze button to get a bit more sleep. I was trapped in that cycle for years, until someone recommended yoga to me. Since practicing it every morning, my life hasn’t been the same. We aren't talking about the headstand and twist your body all up kind of yoga. I mean, I would love to be that big time yogi but when I say yoga, I'm talking about some solid deep stretches to start off my day!
Last night I felt overcome by sadness as I reflected upon all the suffering in this world. I felt guilt for my warm bed, a house that is standing with electricity and a pantry full of food. All of that is hard to sit with when you know there are so many that are suffering and without. Along the same lines though, my sadness helped me appreciate the life that I have. I felt so conflicted.
The past 6 months I have been preparing myself for some major growth. I created an intention with myself to level up in a massive way, personally and professionally. At one point I found myself questioning whether I had hit my upper limit with success already.
Makeup isn't just about looking pretty and it's certainly not about looking pretty for someone else. It's about expressing your creativity using makeup to create art with your face as the canvas. When you are proud of your creation, you are confident, and you wear that confidence like a beautiful suit of armor.
Don't allow others negativity outweigh your belief that you can do anything you want to do. With passion, courage and determination, you will make it happen. I believe in you, can you believe in yourself?
I'm here to tell you that you do not have to be anyone different. You are already a goddess and perfect the way that you are and I'm here to remind you of that! I want you to know that about yourself. I want to you to stop trying to fit into a box that is not meant for you. I want you to know that there are people out there that are seeking someone just like YOU!
Mindfulness is not an attitude, it is a skill. It must be practiced and cultivated.
This my friend is why mindfulness is a superpower. Living in the moment means letting go of the past and trusting in the future. When we are positive and optimistic in the present, we open the possibility of a positive and promising future. We owe it to ourselves to make every moment count - now!
You have ONE crazy life. How are you going to spend it? Are you going to spend it thinking of who you aren't in this world? That you aren't good enough, smart enough or pretty enough? Or are you going to start telling the world WHO YOU ARE? That you are incredibly smart, beautiful, big hearted and so much more. You choose how you live your life. Make a wise decision on what you choose to put out there!
