Every Step of Growth Unveils a New Version of You!

Each step we take, each decision we make, molds us into a new version of ourselves.

In the quest to find ourselves, we often navigate through various phases of life, encountering different versions of who we are. These versions are not contradictions or inconsistencies; they are manifestations of our growth, reflections of our resilience, and echoes of our inner journey.

In my own journey, I’ve had to craft numerous versions of myself.

From my days as a rebellious teenager, questioning the world around me and searching for answers, to my time as a passionate activist in university, striving to enact change. Then, delving deeper into self-discovery, I confronted the anger stemming from the impact of colonization on my family as part of the African diaspora. This led me to channel my energy into helping others, utilizing my God-given gift as a healer. And now, I have reached a point where I need to prioritize myself by taking the time to find my inner peace through a journey of self-healing, meditation, and taking a break from everything else.

Each of these phases has shaped a new iteration of myself, one that I’ve had to reintroduce to the world…

So, it’s crucial to understand that self-discovery is not a destination but a continuous process — a perpetual unveiling of our true essence. To embark on this journey, one must be willing to shed old skin, break free from limiting beliefs, and embrace the uncertainty of the unknown.

At every turn, we are presented with opportunities for growth — moments that challenge our perceptions, stretch our boundaries, and push us beyond our comfort zones. These are the catalysts for transformation, the milestones of our evolution.

Embracing change can be daunting, for it requires us to confront our fears, confront our insecurities, and confront the parts of ourselves we may not be ready to face. Yet, it is in these moments of discomfort that we find our greatest strength, our deepest resilience, and our truest selves.

Each version of ourselves carries with it valuable lessons and insights.

It is through embracing these different facets of our being that we truly come to know ourselves — our passions, our purpose, and our potential.

Remember, the essence of who you are is not defined by any one version of yourself but by the collective wisdom gained from each iteration.

So, as you navigate the twists and turns of your journey, remember that with each step you take, you are becoming a new version of yourself — a version that is more resilient, more courageous, and more authentically you.


It’s also important to understand that as you evolve and grow, some folks might not recognize the new you.

But guess what? That’s okay! It’s all part of the beautiful messiness of the journey. See, here’s the thing: not everyone is meant to stick around for the entire ride. Some people will level up with you, cheering you on every step of the way. They’ll be your biggest fans, your steadfast companions, your ride-or-die crew.

But then there are others who might not get it. They might raise an eyebrow, scratch their heads, or even walk away altogether. And you know what? That’s okay too.

Because here’s the kicker: your journey is yours and yours alone. It’s not about fitting into someone else’s mold or living up to someone else’s expectations.

It’s about honoring your truth, following your heart, and staying true to who you are.

So, if someone doesn’t recognize the new and improved version of you, that’s on them — not you.

Keep shining your light, my friend. Keep dancing to the beat of your own drum. And trust that the right people will see you for the amazing, evolving soul that you are. After all, life is too short to dim your light for anyone else. So go ahead, sparkle and shine.

The world is waiting for you to show up as your most authentic self.
