I Was Afraid to Be Okay with Myself


Coming to the Saprea Retreat, changed my life forever. I have always been known for my smile, as it’s my way to combat the bad in my life. But now I am known for the smile in my eyes as well. No longer a lost girl. 

I am renewed, I am a warrior, a sassy warrior! I stand tall and proud with my Warrior stance! I was afraid to be okay with myself, afraid to be pretty, unsure of myself. 

No longer ashamed as the shame isn’t mine to carry. No longer alone, I am empowered by the beautiful women brought into my life. 

We are not alone, we are enough, and we are amazing strong, intelligent, beautiful women. 

Thank you for this opportunity I will forever be grateful!
