Be Your Own Advocate

Hello Friends. Today I want to talk about the importance of being your own advocate.

I believe in connection and building relationships with other people, but ultimately the relationship with our self is the most important. Sometimes you have to tell yourself I am a bad ass, I am solid, I am good, and I can do this.

We are not always going to get that from people externally. A lot of times we want that validation, but that validation may never come, and ultimately we have to be that voice for ourselves. What I mean by that is you have a voice within yourself far greater, far stronger, and far smarter than any person you’re looking to tell you you’re right or wrong, you’re smart, you’re beautiful, whatever it may be. You need to know your worth. A lot of times we are looking for that safety net before we put ourselves out there and follow whatever it is we’ve needed to do for far too long.

We can’t blame anyone else because ultimately every single decision in our life has been our decision. Yes, there may have been influences we were unaware of at the time, but ultimately we are standing where we are because of the decisions we made. If we want change then we have to take action to make that change.

My goal is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. Take pride in my thoughts, the body I was given, my talents, my flaws, and stop the consistent BS that we can’t be loved for exactly who we are.

Brene Brown said it best when she said, “You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.”

    Hey girl! Great video. Enjoying watching your journey as you get your online presence to take off!

    Just a tip about your video – let me preface this by saying my husband works in the Video production industry, so I’ve learned a few things over the years 🙂 — Zion the camera out a little so we can at least see your shoulders, as it was a little weird to watch just your “talking head”. Also, sit facing the window. You should always have the light in front of you. Natural light is best. With the light coming from the side, it’s castinf a dark shadow across your face.

    You have great speaking skills! And your message was spot on. Keep up the great work!!

    Also, Fire up Chips!

      Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful insight :). Very helpful! I’ll have to find a good location that faces the window. Thank you!
