Hey, ya’ll. How’s your heart today? It’s my last Thursday being 30—my birthday is Saturday. And I am feeling tender and triumphant all at once. This has been a whirlwind of a year. I feel incredibly grateful to be healthy and alive. Earlier this week, I sent out a newsletter with journal questions that encouraged finding moments of self-celebration. I was looking over my reflections on worthiness that I’m reveling in and wanted to share them with you. . . I am worthy of: authentic friendship sacred+ overflowing love the truth safe conversations with room for disagreement + understanding my own time rest + moments of pause joy room to grieve space to grow peace of mind stillness being fully present in my body healing while black (both myself and others) taking good care of myself . . Community, feel free to add to this list in the comments. #selfcelebrationdiaries . . PS. Registration for my course closes next week. We are almost to capacity, and the excitement is building! I’m very ready to dive into inner-child journaling with you all—link in bio to sign up. . . * If you’re wondering, I purchased my dress from @shoptaylorjay—a black owned business out of Oakland, CA.
