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! 🙏🏻💋
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.
