PIECE OF PEACE: IN MY ELEMENT
Here’s why your growth is worth the temporary grief.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“I just feel so in my skin, in my element. I don’t want any more of the nonsense or bull(s**t). It’s such a freedom and strength that comes from knowing who you are and who you want to be and all the things we’re all looking for, and for our kindred spirits to connect. I’m loving it. I’m feeling so good. I expect it will keep getting better.” — Alicia Keys
As Alicia welcomes her 42nd birthday, we’re taking a look back at her 40th celebration. In an interview with USA Today, Alicia spoke about entering a new year feeling freer and better than ever. The root of her newfound confidence? Being more herself.
By showing up authentically, we clear the clutter and create space for what’s truly aligned. It may sometimes feel scary to watch as the old and familiar fall away but, as Alicia points out, you’re only making room for the people and things that propel you forward.
Being in your element isn’t about being in control of everything that happens to you, but finding the confidence to know that you’ll be fine regardless. Mastering your self-awareness, soulcare, and saying buh-bye to the bulls**t is where your power is, so go. Be unapologetically you. And when it’s all said and done, thank the universe for every rejection and redirection.
Your freedom is on the other side of your fear, so hold on, stay strong, and remember: It will keep getting better.
