Every day is a chance for a new beginning.

 

Okay, it’s cliche. But it’s true. Every morning that you wake up is a fresh start. An opportunity to create a new life for yourself. You have that power, if you choose to accept it.

No matter what has occurred in your past, you are strong and powerful. Trauma or physical or mental illness might have convinced you otherwise, but those things don’t define you. Neither do other people’s opinions.

As a child, you heard stories about yourself from the people around you. Beliefs and perceptions that were never truly about you, and were never truly yours. But their beliefs, their words and abuse, covered you and coated you like dirt, and that dirt became so much a part of you that as you grew, you didn’t even realize you were carrying it. Their stories became your story. Their beliefs became yours.

You aren’t who they said you are. You can choose to stop believing what they taught you to believe. You can learn to see the dirt that others put on you, and wash it away. And then you can create yourself and your life as you want and deserve them to be.

I’m Kim Ramsey-Winkler, and I know you have this power within you, because I’ve found it within myself after living for decades coated with other people’s dirt. Let me guide you to your own power and help you to create your new life.
