The Price of Peace

How much is a peace of mind worth to you? It’s absolutely priceless to me. I know what it feels like to not have it and once I got it back, I promised myself that I would never let anyone come along and make me compromise it again, and thus far I’ve done just that. The fact that I’ve reached a level of contentment and self love for myself is a feeling that I can’t explain. Of course I still have my down days and days where I question myself, my choices, and my plans ahead but I know that no day will be "perfect" and I’ve started having the good days more often than not these days.

I’ve learned to let things be and realize that there are a lot of things that are inevitable and out of my control whether I worry about it or not. I’ve been working on me for a while now and I can’t even believe the progress myself. Praying for yourself and not waiting or depending on anyone else to do it for you (although it’s a blessing to have others’ genuine prayers as well) is a big step. When you love yourself, it shows and there’s not a status, meme, or social media post that would ever be able to describe it. This feeling makes you shine brighter than any ounce of makeup could ever do. Today and everyday, I’m celebrating loving ME and embracing my imperfections, inside and out🌻
