"A lot of people get stuck in their own journey. They relive the worst parts of it over and over again in a very unloving way. It becomes a vicious circle of inner self disappointment that circles them right back around to the same place again. I’ve been there and I get it. Instead of getting stuck on your journey, take the mistakes you made and will make and love yourself as if you were a child who is learning. Even as adults, in some areas of growth we are only children and we must be gentle with ourselves to truly grow through the journey. What I know to be true is that people are searching for a place of belonging and validation. You can create this for them by being a leader who spreads passion and love. Remember that your journey is a gift because it provides the wisdom you will need to go out and create positive change in the world. So your goal is to learn from your past and do better as soon as you know better. Be strong and have courage to change. Trust me, I know how hard it is to move past the dysfunctional patterns that have become comfortable. But the rewards of doing so allow you to stand outside of yourself and get a good look at whom you have been and where you are now. What surfaces is love. And now you can shine this love for others…. You see, without the journey, you would not have this gift♥
