“Owning your seat at the table.”

I’ve heard this phrase used a lot recently, and it continues to hit me right in the heart.

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” -Virginia Woolf

It feels like it’s always been there. That niggle. The voice. You know, the one that says “you shouldn’t have that”.

Hey beautiful,

You light up the world.  You know that right?  You are brave and courageous and filled with love.

You don’t need to be afraid that it won’t work out.  It will.

You don’t need to fear that you aren’t enough.  You are more than enough, and always will be.

You don’t need to worry about how others will perceive you.
