I’ve been giving myself a lot of pep talks lately, trying to remind myself of who I am and where I’m going. As summer shifts into fall my life has been shifting with it. A whole lot of change has been happening lately, and as excited as I may be to start a new chapter of my life, I haven’t exactly been accepting it with open arms. I’ve had my doubts about things, primiarily of myself and my judgement.
After a while, self-validation doesn’t exactly do the trick anymore. Which is why I turn to the words of the wise who’ve experienced far more of life than I have. The common theme? Knowing when to let go and to openly accept the things that are awaiting us in our futures. With these words I move confidently forward, pursuing my dreams and maintaining the love in my heart for the life I’m building .
