I did not make it through my forty days without social media this time around. It doesn’t matter how disciplined you are, you are human and as humans sometimes we feel as though we have failed ourselves. I have never not made it through this self challenge in all of the years I’ve been doing this. I’m not perfect, nor do I want to be, one things for certain I’m me and I love myself. I feel that I’m having a major self growth shift and it feels good. Right as I was starting my forty day retreat, I had two friends decide to no longer be my friends, what led to that was my choosing to risk the friendships by standing up for myself in the most respectful ways possible, I let them know my boundaries and they left on their own accord. They weren’t my friends, I discovered that quickly when they ran for the hills because I wasn’t receiving the respect I require. They did me a favor. We must love ourselves enough too stand in our values of ourselves, we are not doormats too others. Being disrespectful and not genuine are not kind. Being kind does not equate to allowing people to walk all over you. In dealing with that and needing to recover from it I came back on. I do feel good and realize in doing the right things a little pain had to come with it. We learn, we grow, we become who we’re meant to be with dignity, grace, and love. Our imperfections are our healers that help us bloom. Sincerity is a gift, treat people the way you would hope to be treated, people are not games. If we only treated people the same as we do our children and pets, there would be so much love and kindness in the world. Self Respect, is important. #love #writing #thoughts #respect #growth #mindset #movingforward #canon #canon6d

Gifts come to us in many forms. #intuition #spirituality #awakening #neversettle We must make ourselves happy and not rely on others too create our joys in life. And the people that we have in our lives are blessings, the cherry on top, love them, love yourself, be joyous, and in gratitude for everything. The magic starts from within.
