You Matter – Getting to Know Yourself First
by Ima Diawara
When was the last time you had the pleasure of getting to know yourself?
We spend days, months, years even getting to know the world around us: learning the ins and outs of the professional world, understanding how to get around, learning to please our parents. But what if we are walking through life without the one connection that matters? How much time have you dedicated to learning about the person within?
Each day, each moment is an opportunity to meet your self. For the amount of time we dedicate to the outside world, the time we spend scrolling through feeds and advertisements, don’t we deserve some time to scroll through ourselves?
Close your eyes. Take a deep breath, a breath that brings life. Imagine yourself in the most ideal situation. Breathe into it, notice how it feels, and take in the sound. How is your heart beating?
Open your eyes. Are you surprised at what you saw? How it made you feel?
There is a universe that rests inside of each of us. This universe is complex and confusing at times. The path to our inner depths is rarely easy, and it is not straight forward. The journey can be scary alone; that’s why we will embark as a Community.
We can’t keep waiting to explore – the time is now! This summer, there are no excuses, only encouragements. We feel your strength, and together, we can power the world from self-love, understanding, and acceptance.
Join us for Summer Healing Sessions: an interactive program to heal, hold yourself accountable, and reach new levels of understanding. Here we will be supporting your journey to self Truth with playlists, book chapters from “Love Without Conditions” (a must-read), and other activities and goodies throughout the month. As a bonus, we’re releasing Reflections from the Table, a series of intimate audio encouragements from Jada herself.
This is the journey of a lifetime, and we are just getting started. Join us!
We’d love to hear from you! Share your truth in the comments below.
