What a day and what a month! I am not sure what is happening to me but I like it. I am finding my voice, setting boundaries and feeling pretty damn good about it.
There comes a time when you get t i r e d of all the BS people keep feeding you. Especially when you work hard, try to do the right thing and respect those who are around you.
Today I was presented with something that did not sit well with me. I had to push back and I have to admit, it felt pretty good. I was reminded of how many times I had to stand up for myself this past year. Month after month, challenge after challenge, it was becoming a daily occurrence and I was getting exhausted, but that’s how life works. Right? Challenges tend to make you stronger in order to handle greater things.
It’s funny how little things remind you that everything is going to be ok. This morning, I put on my favorite arm straps mainly for aesthetics. What I didn’t notice is how I stacked them. The top strap was my name and the bottom strap has the words “STAY STRONG”. It was like my arm straps were talking to me… “NICOL STAY STRONG”.
Look, whoever reads this, I want to share a few thoughts and hopefully help someone stay strong and keep pushing through.
Remember, L O V E who you are (right now),
Set boundaries (today)
Do NOT apologize (ever) for who you are.
