I love this post and this individual for her courage and her strength on and off the tennis court. She is the change.
There are so many things that I want to say but I’ll keep it short. Speaking from my own experience as Naomi I struggle (I believe we all do). Yes, I am grateful for waking up and having another chance at life but within that day but there are days where feel like I’m not good enough or I didn’t give enough, or I suck (self-deprecation is real and can limit your greatness).
There are times I’m very hard on myself for not accomplishing the things I set out to do. Like not taking more chances, procrastinating, not being disciplined enough, for making a decision be it good or bad. Simply just not being enough at anything. It doesn’t matter the support you have around you or not you still have those moments where not being good enough rattles your everything. Especially when people around you and the world see you as greatness and/or indestructible.
This is why I say take a moment even if for 5 minutes to celebrate and appreciate you. The funny thing is I really have to start taking my own advice and work on celebrating myself more than being hard on myself.
Take care of yourself and appreciate how far you’ve come. Keep working to be the best you but remember to be gentle with yourself when things do go as you want them to go. YOU are enough!
