Finding YOU Again
Hello Lovely. It has been a while and I have missed you so! I know that it must seem like your daily dose of I Look Good Today just disappeared without warning, never to be heard from again. These last few months have been challenging for me, and unfortunately, I had to step away and focus on ME for a bit. I hope now that I'm back, you will check in each day, leaving your amazing comments as we jump back in to all things I Look Good Today.
I'm not ready to fully divulge what has gone on in my absence, but I have learned that sometimes the brightest moments come after the darkest nights. I’ve found time can heal most anything, and you just might find who you’re supposed to be in the process.
Figuring out that I belong in the skin I’m in is better than Christmas morning. Better than buying a new dress and that Gucci purse you've been eyeing in the same day! But it’s sort of scary too. Every time I stretch or take a deep breath I’m afraid a piece of me is going to fall off like something bursting out of a shell. So what? If it falls off then it didn’t belong there anyway, right? It was something I tried to patch on to my psyche, thinking that it belonged there.
What is so important to remember when you face life's challenges is that you need to get to a place where you are free. Free to explore and find, I hope, who you are years after your journey began. Time to pause and reflect and regroup and restore your power. Dive deep into yourself and leave behind what no longer serves your soul. You will be free, but not until you know; not until you find YOU again.
