GROWTH

#growth ~ “Fall in love with becoming the very best version of yourself.” (Unknown)

Every new day, we have an opportunity to work on a super cool project: the project of becoming the very best versions of ourselves. In order to be able to work on that project, we have to allow ourselves to fully open up to every possibility of Growth. Growth can (and should) become our best friend. Sometimes we’ll get mad at Growth because it’ll hurt like all heck. Sometimes, we’ll love and adore Growth because we will immediately see the ways in which it’s our ally. But most of all, we must be patient. It takes a while for Growth to do its thing, and while that’s happening, we have to (genuinely) be willing to accept whatever comes across our path and interpret it as a lesson and a teacher.

Working our way to the very best version of ourselves will take patience, time and lots of revamping. The very best version of myself is not version 1. Or version 2 or 3. But if I allow Growth to be my best friend, and take the time to be my own greatest fan and encourager, the best version of myself can be me, right now: version 2468. And then, I can keep topping myself. Version 2469 will be even stronger.

Take the time to sort through what’s inside of you… and learn to love it because you love yourself, and you love working on your own journey. Take an imaginary machete and clear out what needs to be gone. Make space for new things. Good things. Your interior environment is your reality. Plant ideas, dreams, passions, and principles. Tend to them. Get down and dirty and become one with them. Becoming the very best version of yourself can become your most favorite project ever. 💪

Lizzie x Aware Causes

For Aware Causes: “Hi! My name is Lizzie Sider and I am a singer/songwriter and bully prevention activist. Bullying is an incredibly important cause to me, because I went through it when I was in grade school. I remember being beaten down emotionally, every day, by the same group of girls… for years. It deflated my confidence. It made me question my own value. It made me feel shy and weak… and I was always a confident, happy girl! My turning point came when my dad told me to remember that “nobody has the power to ruin your day!” With time, patience and practice, I took these words to heart, and to this day, never again have I let someone else make me feel inferior without my permission. This is such a powerful concept. By letting someone else have control over how you feel, you are giving them the power. We must take our power BACK. We must hold our power so close and dear to our hearts, and never let it out of our hands again. This is the message that helped me through when I was being bullied and it helps me in my life everyday. I believe that when you realize that YOU are the only person in your life who has any say over how you feel about yourself, how you see yourself and how you believe in yourself, then YOU have unlimited potential. In addition to developing our own personal power, it is so important to be an example for others around us through being kind and supportive to those around us. And, as they say, when you see something, say something. Don’t go along with a group of people who are bullying someone else. Keep an eye out for those who may be getting bullied, and extend a hand and remove them from that situation. Be a friend. This is how we become AWARE of our own actions and surroundings. We must bring more awareness to bullying because EVERY life is valuable and NO ONE should have to feel like they are ever anything less than special!” Lizzie x Aware Causes April 20, 2020

Love Yourself

[love yourself] I know it may seem like a struggle. But I want you to strive to love every inch of yourself. In case nobody told you today, you are so worth loving. Let your hair down. You don’t have to try so hard. Let the inner you shine outward, and let that become what you’re most proud of. Let yourself be seen, beautiful.
