I walk in confidence because I know my worth
I’ve realized that many people are unaware of their true worth. They settle for mediocre and/or people who cannot assist them growing to be that beautiful flower. I recently wrote this complex card to my … boyfriend… (I have a boyfriend 🤦🏾♀️❤️❤️😁… )
I wrote this card after walking through the Writers Museum in Chicago. After walking the museum and being in my element, and reading about those American authors, and reflecting I felt the need to let my guard down and share words with him; you know words are truly important!
I wrote to him that he makes me happy. I wrote a riddle he said about weeds and flowers …. 🤦🏾♀️… I didn’t think it was a riddle but….. I think I complicate words more, but he took the time to understand what I wrote. It stemmed from my thoughts about about how detrimental people can be in your life. I enjoy the peace and the laughs that he brings to my life! I smile thinking about it because it is something that I have never had…. a true peace… He added to the peace that I have. He offers a security that many can and never will know, he offers a trust that makes me feel safe, and he offers a hug that (I’m stealing his words) makes me feel as if I am hugging myself. He is genuine, and in his daily interaction with me I see that he attempts to learn me. He respects me so much that some of his actions are mind-blowing, but he sees how I respect myself so he is following suit AND this is naturally who he is.
I realized that what I’ve gone through many would not be able to let go and truly embrace what life has offer. Oftentimes one fails to see how happy they can be just by being alone and learning themselves. This allows one to know their own worth. If you don’t take the time to know yourself and embrace yourself, how do you expect another person to do so? If I didn’t know my worth, I would fall back into the same cycle I came from…. dealing with the same things I dealt with, but we have a choice to be happy! Happiness stems from so many things; joy, self-reflection, being true to you. Happiness also stems from being able to truly let go of the past, unless of course you are ONLY using it as a method to grow and become a better you…
We are all beautiful flowers in our flowerbeds. They are all so beautiful, but sometimes you meet people who never took care of their flowerbeds. These people have weeds in their beds that are camouflaged as flowers. We overlook weeds sometimes. I did once before and I was certain this green thing in my yard was a flower until I looked closer and even had someone come look at it with me.
This becomes problematic because if you do not know your worth, the worth of your precious flower beds, this results in you allowing someone in your flower bed who will destroy your flowers with their weeds. Weeds can be symbolic of anything; bringing down your self esteem, verbal abuse, physical abuse, manipulation, neglecting self, and so much more.
I’ve finally slowed myself to pay even more attention to those that I give a seat to on my patio because I cannot risk them dropping one of their seeds… I mean weeds 😳 into my flower bed and destroying the beauty of what I’ve worked so hard to maintain.
So as you work on being happy and healthy, be mindful of who you allow near your flowers…
Protect you…and find someone that enhances your flowerbed 🌺
