This woman I'm creating....this LIFE and WOMAN I am creating with the choices I continue to make is on purpose. I owe it to myself and everybody else to be the best version of me. I fall short, I fall down, I fall backwards, I fall forward, but I will NEVER STOP creating her. I will put down things that do not belong to me. I will refrain from picking up things that do not belong to me. I will embrace ALL the things that belong to me and I will LOVE the things that belong to me.
I'm not perfect. I do not aspire to be perfect. And I have a vision in mind of the woman I am creating by doing and undoing. And I watch that vision manifest itself into my reality.
Note to self: you are not your past. you are your past combined with the choices you make and the power you use to create. This is what self-love and determination look like.
