HOW I GOT HERE… The journey to self-love.

The journey to self-love. has not been easy for me. I can attest to the fact that it does get easier as we age, and we expand our perspective.  Acceptance in particular has been challenging for me and I imagine that is the case for many people. Reliving the past, trying to change an outcome that has already left with it pain, judgements or false belief is something that needs constant confrontation as it tries to feed you negative self-talk, negative self-image and often times feeling empty in a hole of negative vibrations.  This of course creates our beliefs about ourselves and the world that resonates with us.  Detachment from myself was my coping method of choice.  Checking out and escaping the present moment seemed to have been working and serving me well… until it didn’t; and that’s when the real work began.  Setting intentions for myself and practicing kindness towards myself felt out of alignment for a long time because it felt as if I was lying to myself but soon, I came to realize that this was the ego keeping me tied to a manageable aspect.  Even buying into the delusion that this kept me safe and functioning in a way that felt familiar to me.  Going through life with blinders on and not willing to feel.  Unable to truly experience joy because I was always waiting for its tragic ending.  An ending that would prove me right every time and keep me in a perpetual cycle of negative self-image.  This snippet of my journey is to highlight the power of intentions and the vibrational frequency of words and why each box comes with an intention printed on it, “May Your Beauty On The Inside Show On The Outside”.  We come into this world innocent and full of love and light and then form beliefs and ideas about ourselves, others and the world around us.  The product affirmations serve as a reminder to practice positive self-talk, love and acceptance…and this is how I got here…
