Life Is About Creating Yourself! #tb

 
"Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself"
-George Bernard Shaw
 

Through your hardships in life you will learn many things but one of the greatest gifts is that they will help create who you are. The darkness is always gifted with a diamond light (Your magical weapon of love, hope, and life no matter how small!) in which you want to grow as bright as possible to lead the way to create who you want to be and the life you desire which will fight the darkness.
 
I knew I was different growing up which I hated myself for, I felt lost, alone and didn't really know who I was but one thing was for sure I was different. I wanted to be normal and fit in but I knew in my heart that I was never going to be normal. As my world grew darker my diamond light stood out in the form of fashion and hair something that made me feel beautiful for the first time in my life. I felt so crazily happy, confident and bubbly. I knew then this was ME! As I made the choice of recovery I knew if I was going to fight this asshole of a monster known as Anorexia and deal with my past I was going to have to do it in style and grow my diamond light.
 
I knew I didn't go through the things I went through to be ordinary, I went through them to be extraordinary and to live the life I imagined. However I didn't know how to grow my diamond light and I was scared the monster of Anorexia would destroy it through my recovery. During this time I discovered Radical Self Love through Gala Darling which was the spark I needed to light up my diamond. Self discovery, self worth and self love began to follow, along with tattoos, a name change, positivity and fighting to make dreams come true. Through the darkness and growing my diamond light I created my life and myself and I am extremely happy and grateful for the life I have today and who I am! I continue to grow my diamond light everyday to create who I want to be, my life and to inspire others.
 
This life is about creating yourself in which you have the power to be anything and anyone you want to be. You create your mind set, your dreams, your beauty inside and out, your success, your morals, your rules and your world. Growing your diamond light is a must as it will be your weapon to fight through the darkness. This life is yours so create who you want to be and inspire the world!
 
With love
Rainbow :) xoxo

  1. I learnt that I am not like everybody very early and I just stopped caring! I'm proud of you for learning that lesson, nobody is the same but nearly everybody wants to be like everybody else! The world is so confusing . . .

  4. Rainbow, I just love the way you write! I can honestly read your passion in it <3 I am so proud of you for finding who you are and working on making yourself stronger to beat the monster that tried to take you down so many times! I believe that from your experience you have become a much more strong willed and beautiful person! I love seeing how confident you are becoming. I know it's never easy to just leave it all behind, because there will be days when you don't feel at your best, but just know that all of the battles you have and will fight will only help you grow. I know you're pretty aware of that ;) I hope you keep growing and working on making yourself happier <3 because you deserve it!

  10. It's amazing that you've managed to pull yourself out of a dark place, a lot of people get trapped and cannot do it. It's something to be happy for every day. You've made such a change from the past, and you can be a great role model for young teens who feel the same way you did when you were their age.
    I'm so happy for you :)

  11. Agree. The only reason why I am still alive or I'm still trying to make it in this world is because I am creating myself pieces to pieces and I'm waiting for the day when I am finally complete.

  15. one of the absolute strengths of the blogging community is the encouragement we give one another to pursue being unique and individual, to express one's self truly and thoroughly
    In many ways our shared experiences of feeling different reflect the human conditions, but the results may vary. in your case you've become a super human transcending the ordinary (something which reminds me a lot of David Bowie talking about his own transformations)

  19. You're such an inspiration and yes there's no need to find yourself. Being lost in a world full of strangers doesn't do much. I think when people throw bad comments you can just take it and build yourself a castle that outstands their negativity ^__^
