a huge part of my growth this year has been centered around vulnerability. while i had already acknowledged that vulnerability can make me feel raw and exposed (but somehow is still totally worth it), what i had not been able to pinpoint is where the high level of discomfort stemmed from.
it was about trust. there had been times i got burned by people i thought i knew/trusted. then, i reached this point where i didn’t only have an issue trusting others. i had an issue trusting myself – an issue trusting my judgment.
i came across this quote on the instagram page of one of my childhood friends and i could not get it out of my head.
“i trust the next chapter, because i know the author.” -toby mac
my eyes filled with tears.
shockingly, the tears weren’t due to sadness or frustration. they were tears of gratitude for how far i’ve come. i am so proud of myself for getting to a place where i truly trust and value all that i bring to the table. i know myself better than i ever have before and that enables me to not only trust the next chapter, but be excited about the next chapter.
what would it look like to trust yourself fully?
