Hi, I’m Destiny and I absolutely lost my sh*t today. I spent over an hour full on ugly crying in my car (think Kim Kardashian but worse). I thought about not sharing this experience at all because let’s face it, it’s kind of embarrassing. Then I realized that by not sharing I’d be doing myself a huge disservice.
You see, I’ve been trying to fully understand myself more, to love myself more, and to fully step into my power. In order to truly show up for myself, and as my highest self I have to embrace the good as well as the bad.
I absolutely lost my sh*t today and that’s okay because I know that I’m in full control of my reality. I could choose to view what happened today as crappy. I could let it ruin my night, or hell even my entire week. I could choose to be so caught up in those negative emotions that I lose focus on what’s important to me. Or, I could choose to honor those feelings, and move through them. I could choose joy.
Today, I choose joy. I choose to look back on that moment and see it for what it was- incredible. I allowed myself to succumb to my feelings, to crack my heart wide open and I feel liberated! I will no longer carry the burden of bottled up emotions. I’m a firm believer that breakdowns lead to breakthroughs and today only helped to solidify that idea in my mind.
