It All Began When I Became Tired

For the longest time, I searched for meaning and purpose. I wanted to do work that mattered and I tried a zillion bunch of stuff that I thought were my passion. But I missed it every time.

I never knew that my purpose was linked to my entire being. My past, my experiences, my hopes and dreams, the things I love and the things I can't stand. Each time I missed the mark, things became clearer.

It took a lot of missing the point to finally hit it.

I grew up in a family where I couldn't be my true self. I couldn't do the things that I loved and every move I made had to be approved first. This affected my self-confidence and esteem and I found it difficult to really take care of myself because I developed the need to please and take-care of others only.  I felt the need to take charge of my life and well-being as I grew and became more independent.

I started this platform to help and encourage others to embrace self-love and learn how to truly take care of themselves and their well-being... and to grow in their faith in God.

God has done so much for me and part of those things is showing and helping me love and care for myself deeply so I can extend that same energy to others. After doing different things that didn't work out, it finally became clear to me that I should help and encourage others in love, care and faith. I hope to inspire and encourage your well-being in many ways and on different levels.

I believe that self-love and self-care aren't selfish because only when we love and care for ourselves are we able to love and care for others. The goal is not only for personal fulfilment, but for fulfilling our God-given duties towards others.

I BELIEVE IN:

God,straight-talk, honesty, true friendships, alone time, journaling, love, peace, rest, Joy of Missing Out (JOMO).

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Invading people's space, disrespect, war, lies, breaking trust, inequality, comfort zones, anything toxic.

YOU CAN FIND ME:

With myself, with my kids, chatting with family and friends, studying, blogging, working on my dreams.

daily rituals

Morning devotion, prayers and affirmations, cuddles with my adorable children (or chasing after them),listening to inspiring music.
