August's Promise

Take a deep breath. Take a moment to feel your breath moving inside of you, to feel the beating of your heart. As you breathe out release all that you hold inside. In this moment, this place right now, you are all that you need to be. You have spent this year working to free yourself of beliefs, fears, and relationships that no longer define you. You have spent this year finding out the truth of who you are. Every time you learned something new or took the next step you found out there was that much more to work through. This year has moved faster and had you digging deeper than you could have imagined was possible. And there is more to come.

It’s ok to feel overwhelmed and it’s ok to feel like you are falling apart. It might even feel like something is breaking inside. It is. You are the planted seed. You have fought your way through the darkness, through the soil, through the tangled roots of others and you have burst forth into the light. You have emerged into your new life. You might not realize it yet, but with courage and perseverance you have faced your fears and self-doubt. You have started to shed the beliefs of others who made you believe that you needed to be more than you already are. You are finally beginning to know deep within you that you are already perfect, that it is your birthright to love and be loved exactly as you are.  

Breathe deeply and feel the promise I speak to you. I promise you, you are more than worth it. You deserve all that you have ever wanted. You deserve to be loved wholly and completely as you are right now. There is not a thing you need to do to become more than you already are. There is no measure of perfection. You are already perfect. No matter who you are, no matter what you believe, no matter what. All that you have done, all the work, the tears, the sleepless nights, the pain, all of it has brought you right back to this truth. Your journey through your darkness has returned you back to the truth of yourself and for just one moment, this moment, know you are complete. You are the light you’ve been searching for.
