A little reminder; you are a phenomenal woman, and you can do anything.
I didn’t always think that I could do anything, I had low self-esteem, was obese, and people kept on reminding me how worthless I was, and that I would never succeed.
-“You will never get a job.”
-“You will never find a man.”
-“You are weird.”
-“You are fat.”
It took me a long time to overcome those harsh words and to love myself.
I began to listen to influential people. Oprah Winfrey was one of them, and her inspiration helped me through many dark moments. I also used to read books by Lyanla Vanzant, Gary Zukov, Dr Phil, as well as James Van Praagh to name a few.
I realized that there was nothing wrong with me, and slowly I began to heal my old wounds. I started to build my self-confidence by looking after myself and my health, and I transformed my view on myself.
Today, I embrace and appreciate the woman that I am.
I am unique, fabulous, and one of a kind.
And so are you my, dear friend.
You can do anything.
