Allow that to sink in. You are love. No need in looking for it or trying to find it in anything or anyone else. It’s an inside job.
Everything is an inside job. Your life is an exact replica of what’s going on inside of you. How you love yourself, how you treat your own self, how you think of yourself, how you feel about yourself, how integral you are to yourself, and the boundaries you set for yourself reflects in the external relationships you have with others and how others deal with and treat you.
Love on yourself, and see just how magical your life can truly be.
Eleven years ago today, August 31st, 2009 I packed two weeks worth of clothes & I moved to New York.
In 2008 I visited for the first time and I knew immediately in my heart that this is where I’m supposed to be. A little over a year later a made that plunge. I stayed with an aunt in Long Island for about six months, then my grandfather passed, and I used all the money I had to get back to Michigan. I had no money to get back to NY, so my youngest brother paid my way back to NY, but I still didn’t have enough to get back to Long Island. After being in Long Island for those six months I knew I didn’t want to go back there. I moved to NY to be in NYC. So I decided to check myself into a shelter.
While in the shelter I had a caseworker whose office was full of plants. I asked my caseworker for a stem of a plant. He gave me a stem of a pothos plant. That was in 2010. I got my first very own NYC apartment in October of 2010.
Not realizing it until just recently, but my pothos has been with me my whole NYC journey. We have been through a lot of things together, but we grew, and grew, and kept growing. Here it is ten years later, and eleven years all together I’ve grown one single stem into ten plants. 💚😁
I’m so grateful for the journey! It’s truly been an amazing one! 💙
