You deserve the best love, support, relationships, friendships, and experiences. You deserve abundance, wealth, and opportunities. You deserve to treat yourself with kindness and love. You deserve growth. You deserve peace. You deserve to find communities that understand you. You deserve to be accepted. Your voice deserves to be heard.
Love does not only mend and improve the bonds we have with each other but also liberates the relationship we have with ourselves. Creating pathways and pockets of grace to face the challenges of our childhood trauma, survival habits, triggers, and attachment to expectations.
When we open the door to love ourselves unconditionally we create bridges to enter parts of ourselves we are used to hiding away. We welcome wholeness and alignment. We accept every part of who we are. Love becomes the language that guides our inner dialogue and helps us to understand our next steps.
As we love ourselves unconditionally and unapologetically, we can love others the same. We interact and speak with others just as we would ourselves. Let love in. Let love create the way.

Choose a butterfly and follow the prompt that goes with that butterfly.
Orange butterfly: List three things that make you smile . Blue butterfly: where is your favorite place to go to relax? Yellow butterfly: describe a moment where you felt brave.
Note: feel free to choose more than one butterfly!
I choose the orange and blue butterflies. Orange butterfly: Three things that make me smile are my dogs, spending time with my family, and sharing my mental health story to help others feel empowered. Blue butterfly: My favorite place to go to relax is my bedroom with all of my pillows.

It’s okay to be proud of the progress you’ve made thus far. It might not be where you would like to be, or where you thought you’d be, but regardless, it’s amazing how much work you’ve put in to get to this point. Continue on the path that’s best for you. Alignment comes to those who are consistent in their pursuit to get to where they know they deserve.
Notice patterns and habits that you pick up from parents, guardians, or family members. The awareness that your behavior resembles that of those who raised you can aid in understanding who you want to be. Some of those behaviors are toxic cycles being passed down through generations. Do you want to continue those cycles and behaviors? It’s okay to go on your own path and do something different. It’s okay to break cycles you no longer want to continue either with yourself or how you raise your own family. Change the course of your life. Break cycles that don’t serve you and your growth.
