Life is poetry. Life is chaos. Life is a journey. It is our charge, from birth that we explore tree tops and stars in search of purpose, but most times it is nestled deep inside a temple we overcrowd, abandon, and leave desolate.
You are your own problem and your own solution.
In my very short time on this Earth-- a mere eighteen years-- I have realized that the beauty and plight of humanity: flaw. We are flawed beings, but this condition is also our greatest asset because without flaw there is no growth and the ability to grow is the most precious gift we were ever given...
So, as 2016 approached and the prospect of change loomed, I welcomed it. I searched for literature, videos, and people who would be catalysts for my journey in self-discovery.
With the help of Bri Hall aka SmartistaBeauty on YouTube I embarked on a path that I thought I knew well and found myself buried beneath years of anger, insecurity, and ignorance.
I embarked on the My Fearlessly Beautiful Year challenge.
I read more.
I listened more.
I observed everything.
The most powerful thing we can do sometimes is step back and evaluate who we were, who we are, and who we will become. So I did just that and I fell completely and hopelessly in love with myself.
Here is my pledge:
I, Bryonna Reed, pledge to live the best life I can without fear. I am a beautiful soul on a journey. I must fly.
I challenge each of you to start back on the journey to yourself. Find it hidden beneath the pain, struggles, and confusion and feed your soul so that it may thrive.
Be a wildflower-- thrive where they never thought you could.
