Excuse me for a moment, but I am going to get totally vulnerable here!
Life is not always what it seems. Four years ago, I was searching for the woman I am today. Longing to know exactly who she is and what she contributes to this life.
Longing to understand my very existence and going through some stuff things. Life is not easy, ya'll. Depression and anxiety got the best of me. However, somewhere in this
body of mine was a total bad-ass woman! A force to be reckoned with. A strong leader. Somewhere in this body is the woman that I am today!
So what exactly did traveling teach me....
1. That I am a total bad-ass
2. I am powerful.
3. I am strong.
4. I am beautiful.
5. I am capable of doing anything I set my mind to do.
6. I am sophisticated.
7. I deserve the world.
8. I AM A QUEEN!!!!
Yes, ladies. I got confidence in myself. I truly learned who CIENNA is! But, I have been here all along. It just took traveling to show me- ME!
I forced myself to travel to another country without any friends or any family members. I went alone but met so many great people while going through Europe. Since I was alone (technically), and no one knew me, I could finally be myself. Mind you, I don't think I understood who exactly I even was when I was in the states.
BUT, being alone- I had to figure that out real quick, ladies!
That's when it hit me. I came back to the states, I told my crush of 10 years that I was completely into him. I started going back to church and developed my love for worship. I became closer to my family, and learned my self worth.
This was two years ago, ladies and those affirmations I said earlier about myself are still true. It's so interesting because every time I travel now, I feel more and more secure in myself!
This is why I started this business - because I want more and more women to feel confident in themselves and love who they are.
My advice: travel the world and learn to love yourself.
