You don’t need validation from anyone else.
Your feelings are enough. They are reason enough to start or stop something.
Your body is enough. You don’t need to change – you are inherently worthy.
Your boundaries are enough. Your “no” needs no justification. Your “no” needs to be listened to.
You are enough. You are worthy.
Self-validation is a real thing, and it is something we can embody. It is way more powerful than external validation because no one can take it from you. There are no uncontrollable changing parameters with self-validation.
If the concept of self-validation feels foreign to your mind, body or spirit, hold space for it being a possibility.
Hold space for that part of you who wanted to raise her hand in class but stopped herself fearing she was wrong and would be reprimanded.
Hold space for that part of you who wanted to voice her opinion but was scared of what others would think because she had been ridiculed before.
And hold space for that part of you who wanted to tell someone to f*ck off but didn’t because “good girls” don’t curse, and how scary is it to not be considered a “good girl” in this world?
Remove the fear and allow those parts of you out because they are still a part you. And they are ready to help you reclaim your worth.

I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
