Holy shit you guys, are you feeling the pressure too!? The pressure for a drastic change. Like your life depends on it?
I feel it. Big time.
When I was a kid my dream was to save the world. I really thought I could do it too. I didn’t know how but I knew that something within me could do something really f-ing cool. I believed in myself.
And then elementary school hit. And then middle school. And high school.
And all the “shoulds” that I THOUGHT I had to internalize.
I SHOULD be skinny, popular and pretty. I SHOULD go to college. I SHOULD have a boyfriend. I SHOULD say and do whatever makes other people happy with me.
I shifted my focus from self to others as if they had the answer.
And became Miserable (yes, with a capital M) trying to be someone that I am not.
I forgot that I know who I am.
AND I like who I am.
AND if you don’t like me, I am A-OK with that.
AND I know that I was made for so much more. #unique #different #special #neverperfect
AND SO ARE YOU.
To every preteen and teenager, to every black sheep and square peg, to every young soul feeling lost and lonely…THE PRESSURE IS ON, my dears, because your life depends on it.
Do you KNOW that you are being shoved into a box that you do not fit? Do you know that our culture desperately (I will beg, if need be) needs some big shifts for survival?
The world needs all that unique, different and special thinking because WE NEED A CHANGE.
We need you. #talkaboutpressure
But the amazing news is that YOU ARE ENOUGH. Everything is already within you. Our society and its crappy values clouded you a bit, but no worries. YOU ARE STRONG.
You may be reading this thinking, “yeah right, me? I don’t think so.”
I gotta admit, its thats bull crap THINKING that gets me fired up, ready to bootcamp-cheerleader style you into BELIEVING something different of yourself. #cantstop #wontstop
I am obsessed with people knowing their worth. It’s my souls calling.
AND, my dears, believe me when I say, you can create the exact life that you want. Not the one that your family, or your teachers, or your friends are telling you it should be.
You can CREATE the life that makes you happy and healthy, from your cells to your soul.
You have the power.
#ibelieveinyou Are you ready to start believing in yourself?
Talk soon, peace and love, Kelly
