The struggle to become a better version of yourself can feel odd at times. Ultimately I believe we are all on this journey together. The journey can be unbelievable and terrifying. I have proved to myself that I can make it through challenging times and now know that the other side is something truly beautiful.

I find it so hard to believe that out of pain comes beauty, out of struggle we find confidence, and it really is about the journey all along.

We are constantly evolving into a better version of ourselves- like butterflies.

Sure, it is easier to not even go on this journey to find a better version of yourself. But, it is not near as beautiful nor as meaningful. Without picking the harder path, there will always be a stirring from within. The harder path is terrifying, but at the same time, peaceful in the heart.

All of this might sound odd or unfamiliar to many. However, those on a similar journey, like my own, will understand because they feel it too.

Just remember, it is your reality and no one else’s. Ultimately I have learned that I am my own problem and my own answer. Meaning I am the cause, but if I search inside I will find what I need to do to guide my purpose. If I have the courage to look inside and the faith to believe, I will always find my way.

Between storms and sunshine, there are rainbows. Rainbows are beautiful. But rainbows need the rain as well as the sun.

It brings me to tears every time I talk of it- because there is fear and great joy while being so overwhelmed.

All I can say is that we are on this crazy road together-all of us. No one is more important than the other. All of us have worth. We are all beautiful and true miracles. Just look inside and have faith in yourself along this beautiful journey. You will always find the way.
