She Tiptoed ~ Vivienne

“She tiptoed confidently into a new dawn” ~ Vivienne

 

People had told me.

As you head through your 30’s into your 40’s and beyond, you just stop caring so much about what other people think of you.

 

It sounded wonderful but I didn’t quite get it until this year.

35.

 

Its not so much that I don’t care what other people think of me anymore, but I am starting to not believe my own stories.

 

The ones that trapped me and never served me.

 

That I was not beautiful.

That I wouldn’t be loved.

 

I can feel the power from those thoughts falling to the ground and I just don’t feel their power anymore.
My worst critic, myself.

I’m defriending her and it’s a simple break up with no regrets

I’m tuning out the sound of her negativity and

New stories are taking hold.

 

It is a new dawn.

I am tiptoeing quietly yet confidently, careful not to wake the darkness so when the dawn breaks I’ll be far ahead,

Leaving my inner critic in the dust.

Off to prove her wrong.

  3. Oh Vivienne, you are beautiful in every aspect. You bring that beauty with you in your writing, your courses and your photography. Good for leaving that voice behind, she wasn’t merely a critic, she was feeding you falsehoods. Embrace your own beauty and receive it as lovingly as you have shown it to others.
