"All of your insecurities, your anxiety, your past, your depression, your sadness....that's all part of MY Valerie. And I knew that up front, and I love you for all of it, and I choose you, every day, regardless of the things that might not be so great."
Hold up. I did not say don't do anything. Action and mindset equal shit happening. So make sure you are actively doing things to move forward. Life is a beautiful journey, so allow it to unfold the way it's meant to be. Detours are great lessons and opportunities to understand yourself more fully. When you feel you're more behind than you expect, use this affirmation. We will always feel we should be farther in life.
