This is truly everything. There's no need to wait until you reach the top of the mountain to find peace. More than anything this is a big reminder to myself. I've always been one to embed my sense of purpose and worthiness deep within my goals to the point that if they crumbled and fell apart, so would I. Your worth is inherent, apart from what you tell yourself, apart from how others respond to you, apart from your accomplishments. Your worth doesn't change based on anything external from you. It's a choice, one I have to remind myself of constantly, that this peace I'm searching for doesn't exist at the end of a checklist or at the heart of some major realization about life. Enlightenment doesn't equal worthiness. Worthiness equals enlightenment. ✨✨✨✨✨.
