[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Hell Naw, not today

something happens when you slowly enjoy becoming the woman of your dreams.
you begin to see how powerful you truly are Ijeoma

Today I am pretty excited, well apart from my upcoming travels, which
always increases my excitement levels, I am just excited about the person
that I am becoming, I am excited about my lessons and discoveries and
victories. It hit me bam in the face today

You (well I really mean me) I keep analyzing, thinking, beating up on
myself - hell, girlfriend lighten up, you ain't doing too bad, really you
aren't ,so ease up, back up, get excited and celebrate!

Be proud of the strides you have made, it doesn't have to be this whole
dramatic production of what is "supposed" to happen and what you aren't
doing or should be doing

Just stop shoulding on yourself for one minute get excited and celebrate Just suspend all judgement about yourself and others today Just suspend the self criticism Just suspend the analytics as to why this or that person is reacting and
responding to you in a way that is different to the way you want them to Just suspend the pretending to be okay

How many of us fall into the trap of not celebrating and getting excited
about life? We just strive and strive and work and work and analyse and
analyse and yada yada yada

Hell naw, time to celebrate! Today is a celebration of you and your becoming becoming the woman of my dreams

I bloody well deserve it
