They say filling your cup is the best way to serve others with your best self. That’s exactly what’s happening this week at LimeLife Palooza! Something I have always struggled with is believing deep down in my heart that I truly am enough. Even in High School, I was a cheerleader and I believed in my team more than I believed in myself. Even though my main role was to engage a crowd and get them excited to watch our team score our way to a victory. Then, I was shy, skiddish, high anxiety, I stuttered a lot and I bowed down to every person who put me down. I believed everything everyone told me I was, I was no one and I was nothing. And I felt it with every fiber of my being.
When I joined this company, I didn’t know what I wanted out of it. I hoped I could dabble in my passion for the beauty industry from home as well as score a few extra spending dollars on coffees or little sussies for myself or the girls.
What I didn’t know is that this would be a major pivot in my life. What I thought would be nothing short of a hobby with a little extra income, has turned into a personal development journey that I never would have taken had I not taken a leap of faith. Truth is, a lot of people can say that they lost themselves through this or through that...but to be honest, I never really knew who I was or who I wanted to be in the first place. I’ve finally found myself and it brings me to tears as I type these words because this mental clarity is so much more than I ever thought I wanted or needed. The extra money is amazing but I’ll be honest, money could never buy what saying yes has done for me.
I still cheer for my team because I want everyone to win but I also cheer for my dang self now, because I know my worth. I know what it’s like to be lost and broken and while I’ll never forget who I am or where I came from, I know that God’s plan for me is so much bigger than anything I’ve ever led myself to believe in the past. I only need be still and trust the process.
I am home.
