When boldness captures your heart and you wrap yourself in purpose it becomes so much easier to live intentionally and authentically! Prior to weight loss surgery I lived my life shrouded in extra layers, my dreams and desired buried deep down! I lived my life out of a sense of obligation and pain because I could see no way that I would ever do the things I dreamed in my heart.
Four years later I now know just how brave she was. The day that she decided to change the narrative. I now know that all the times I wanted to be strong I was actually asking for a life filled with challenges – because how do we ever know how strong we truly are until we come to the end of ourselves?
These days my desires are oh so different!! I ask for the grace needed to be kind and intentional with my days, with those I love and with myself. Changing is hard but staying the same is harder.
