I was talking to a close girl friend this week and she had something beautiful and spectacular happen to her. She was falling in love and things were going well in other areas of her life, too. But….
But what, I gasped?! And then she let out the shocker. I’m not used to feeling this way. I feel scared for feeling happy…what if things don’t work out.
Be Proud of Your Success
How many times did you feel this way? Oh my gosh, I felt that way a million times. You’re not used to having good things happen to you, so when they do, it’s actually an uncomfortable feeling.
When you accomplish something, you almost want to apologize for it. You look around and don’t see others reaching that level of success. Well, you worked for it, so you should feel proud of your success!
You Deserve Your Success
Why?! Because you deserve it. You worked for it and put in your passion, sweat, and heart into making things happen for you. After all, one of the reasons you did what you did was so you could be successful and fulfill your desires. A true self-respecting woman will always own her success and by owning it, you are appreciating it and being grateful.
The Dark AND Great Parts of Your Life Are Both YOU
Your struggles and heartaches are the dark parts of your life. They are a huge part of you. They contributed to who you are today. And you should never dismiss them. Likewise, the beauty and success also belong to you. They are the ying and yang of you.
