A little over a year ago, I made a decision. I decided I was willing to be true to myself and my calling, no matter the cost. I would be authentic and honest, even if it cost me relationships, safety, reputation, and money.
It would be untrue to say I remade myself, because really, I have just allowed myself to strip away all the pieces of me that were created out of fear of what others would think, judge, and reject.
It has not been a REMAKING. It has been a GETTING NAKED. With a head held high. Loving myself through the fires of vulnerability.
I would be lying if I said it didn’t hurt. Because the truth is, there isn’t a lot of tolerance for that amount of transparency. People turn away. They treat you differently. They get uncomfortable.
When you get transparent and fully honest, you get BRIGHT. You shine a light on areas many aren’t willing to look at. You call out the inconvenient elephant in the room. And some will resent you for it.
But THIS is how we change the WORLD.
Because your brightness is also CONTAGIOUS for those who ARE ready for it.
So, Goddess, DO IT.
SHINE SO BRIGHT IT BURNS THEIR FUCKING EYES.
