Dear @mynameisjessamyn -
THANK YOU. You are so beautiful, so intelligent, so gracious and so damn strong. Thank you for wisely saying, "At the end of the day, it doesn't matter if you have three out of four of your limbs; it doesn't matter if you're fat, short, tall, male, female, or somewhere in between. None of that matters. All that matters is that we're human and trying to breathe together." Thank you for helping us remember the divinity we were ALL born with.
This is for all you ladies WAITING to make your dreams a reality. I waited until I saw the life of someone I loved deeply, end far too soon. We get so wrapped up in the hustle of life that we forget our tomorrows are not guaranteed. We can hope for a tomorrow but, there is no promise it will continue to come, day in and day out. So, as hard as that may be to realize, it is the perfect invitation to start chasing those dreams today. What are you really gaining by playing the waiting game anyway?
Are you waiting because the funds aren't there to invest in yourself? If so, what are you doing today to change your current situation?
Are you waiting because the belief in yourself isn't there yet? If so, what are you doing to build up your self-belief? Will you ever truly believe you are worth investing in?
Are you waiting because the timing just doesn't feel convenient? If so, what if I told you that it never will?
I waited for years of my life. And then I realized, I didn't want my story to be pages and pages of simply waiting. I wanted to grab life by the horns. I wanted to live out my dreams. I wanted to try, fail and fail again, until I reached the stars and began changing the world. I wanted to truly FEEL what loving my life felt like. I wanted to look at other people and smile knowing that I was no longer envious of their story because I was so proud of my own. I wanted to be an example of a woman on the rise despite the lack of funds, despite the lack of self belief and despite the fear of never finding the right time. It starts today Sisters! Start beliving in yourself, investing in yourself and give the gift of opportunity to the most deserving woman in the world - Y O U.
