I have lost myself about a million times, then realized I wasn’t losing myself at all.
I was simply shedding some parts of me I didn’t need anymore, parts of me that needed to go so that I had room to grow.
Some parts I didn’t lose at all, I had in fact become wiser, lived and learnt a little more than I once did. Those parts of me I thought I had lost had actually evolved.
I first became a daughter, then a sister, a friend, a lover and then a mother.
Along the journey of becoming a woman; learning to be all these things and so much more, unconsciously, slowly and silently I was growing, not only in age but within my soul.
There have been times I have questioned the timing of my life, compared it and wanting to rush to the next chapter way before I was even ready.
But there is no timeline for you better than the one you are on, no rush, no perfect place to be just because of age or a year. You are where you need to be.
It is not just children that are growing, we are too – so maybe when we feel we are losing ourselves we are actually changing, growing, healing and making room to be more.
Change is part of life.
We are constantly evolving.
We continue to grow everyday of our lives.
Life is messy, unique, scary, and beautiful all at the same time.
Its okay to feel you have lost yourself because when you find yourself again –
You will find yourself stronger and wiser, a higher version of yourself.
Be proud of her. She is done a lot of growing to get here.
