Journal of a Black Lady. #2

My phone is broken, it has so many pieces missing and is held together by cello tape. I can’t help but think this is exactly how my life is right now, I’m not broken ofcourse I just feel like I’m held together by this idea in my head of who I want to be and that is the only thing that keeps me going. I always wonder how people love themselves , the idea of someone loving themselves fully has been such a foreign thing to me for such a long time and want that change.
i wouldn’t lie to you, I don’t exactly know who I am . If someone asks me today who Jacqueline is or what exactly is her story, I won’t have an answer because I don’t know and i am very indecisive  as i mentioned on a previous post this costs me a lot especially in my line of business where i always have to be ahead of the game and *consistent on what i do and when you do not know yourself how can you stand/work for something you believe in?  

I don’t hate myself but at the same time i don’t love and know myself and most of the time i am always caught up with what other people think of me and i am here to tell you no one’s opinion should matter when YOU are involved. They don’t know you like you know you nobody should have that kind of power over you, not your parents, significant other  friends and most importantly those who do not know you personally or add value to your life.

               The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are – Joseph Campbell

I like sharing my thoughts with my readers and this time i decided to go deeper say what i have been thinking of a lot  lately and maybe i could relate to one or two readers and/or also to inspire someone else. So as i am starting this beautiful journey of finding or creating myself and knowing what i want , need and believe in i will be sharing with you a few tips , books i am reading or articles read and more on Loving and Knowing yourself.

*To start with i am currently doing a cleanse on Consistency since one of  my biggest struggle is that i am not consistent and i want to be since i know i can be better than how/who i am now and it is through taking steps like being consistent in my work and personal life.

What are some of the daily YOU struggles you guys go through that you think you should work on? do you think loving yourself is the key to almost everything in life?
