Create Yourself

img_2477Earlier this year I had an epiphany about where I’m going in life. Which happens for many of us. We evaluate where we are and how we can position ourselves to move forward.

I decided to do some deep soul searching which has lead me on a beautiful Spiritual Journey. I started 2018 with the mindset to mold myself into the person I’d like to be, not what people around me wanted me to be or accomplish As I pondered on this, I thought: do my actions match my thought process of how I’m actually perceived? Are my thoughts effectively manifesting to my reality? Through this, I went back to writing and practicing habits of how to be more present and aware of self. I soon realized the two didn’t match up.

Can anyone else relate to this?

As I sat there, in my room writing, I thought to myself: You literally have the opportunity to create yourself to be any type of person you want to be perceived. I Create opportunities for success in ALL areas of my life. Crazy right? To realize one could have SO much power in their own creation.

I then came up with this:

You are the controller of your destiny.

You have the power.

You OWN it.

Claim yourself as the creator.

You are only who you present yourself to be.

Sometimes we get lost and have lack of self awareness. I got this tattoo as a reminder that each day is an opportunity to Create Yourself. With each new day we have the power to write our story of how we present ourselves to the world. Create your own happiness. Create your own success. Create how you will take your failures and turn them into positive turning points in your life. Be aware of our actions towards others as well as ourselves.


There is much power and purpose with this tattoo. Some of us have goals to become more confident, more kind, more understanding, more fit, more happy…the list goes on. Each day is a new opportunity to create your reality to your expectations.


The real question is this: What are you doing today to write your story? Comment below!

  1. I love this post and it’s the second time just this week I’ve seen a similar message pop up in my life. It’s definitely a sign for me! As we grow older, we redefine ourselves more and more. With the craziness of life, it becomes harder but that reflection is so very important! Thank you for the reminder!
