Most women secretly believe that they are “not enough”. The very opposite is true. You are way…WAY more than enough. You have more than enough to do, be, create and have everything you desire! In order to have EVERYTHING you desire, you must shift your beliefs and begin to see yourself in a new and strong way. It’s about creating a powerful mindset shift…the first step is connecting with your Inner Goddess.

I loved when I put this outfit together, and loved it even more when I saw the quality of the photos. But! Why did I start to hate myself after taking a second and third look? I noticed one of my biggest fears. I felt I was beginning to look like the extra 20 pounds I had gained since my dramatic weight loss 5 years ago. Not much has changed in my clothing size but all the weight packed in my hips and chest, now some may say, oh that isn’t so bad and you do look amazing after all. But in actuality, I haven’t felt amazing since those pounds started to pack on and I was not liking the wider hips and heavy chest. I then tried almost every crush diet out there and literally started almost living at the gym all in hopes of losing the weight overnight. Yes, I was starting to believe I was not good enough. So this month, I took step back, and decided that it was time to love me in whatever size and shape I was today while enjoying the process of shedding the weight off. I know we all have insecurities in one form or the other but then again we need to always remember we are way more than enough and as much as our society, family and friends fail to remind us, it important that we channel our inner soul and change this objective. I urge you to fall in love with yourself all over again by loving the imperfect parts of you because there can only be one you; A (Black) Goddess.
