Whenever I turn a year older, it forces me to reflect on what happened in the past year. A lot of times, I barely can remember.
Out of insecurity, I kind of stopped of taking pictures of my life. This stemmed from my weight gain, in not wanting to visually see what I looked like, but also resulted in me to not taking pictures of my life AT ALL.
Yesterday, I made a vow for myself: To get closer to my “highest self” in the next year.
As said by Riley Lawson:
“This is not someone outside of yourself, nor someone you become, your highest self is your truth. It’s your soul and your heart and all things pure that love within you.”
“This truth is what existed within you before your upbringing, before your experiences, pain, rejection, abandonment, and fear got away. It often gets buried so deep through these things that are connection to it becomes blocked.”
“The more connected to your highest self you become, the deeper you access genuine confidence.”
As limited as time can be, I owe it to myself to prioritize myself. I’m positive there will definitely be uncomfortable moments, will not be easy, and anxiety will be at all time high, but at the end of the day, my values will guide me to the life I’ve always wanted.
Wish me luck.
