Getting Over Self-Consciousness

I used to get pretty self-conscious about the way my lips went so high up in my moments of extreme happiness or laughter bursts.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hated if pictures showed this. I would feel that it was ugly and excessive so I wanted to hide them because my gums were soo pronounced.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now? I love being happy and laughing more than I could ever care about how I look when I am being happy and Free and totally in the moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My current self surrenders more to the embodiment of ‘being’ and this allows me to embrace each moment more. Now when I see a picture of me like this, gums n all, I am so grateful for this happiness because I can reflect upon many times in my life where my mind was my worst enemy and my depressed or anxious demons would torment me and rob me of my happiness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In no way am I perfect or always happy go lucky. Trust me, I struggle a lot mentally, emotionally, and physically as well.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have really bad days where I doubt myself, question my every move, feel like a failure, and other negative emotions surface and run a muck in my head. But I consciously choose to recenter, Get help, refocus, channel energy differently, and prioritize just being me and being in the moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also honor my soul and my calling so much more. I do what I know needs to be done even if it is scary or ‘risky’ because I have a deep belief that when we follow our soul, regardless of how scary, everything does work out for us.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s the point if you aren’t happy and totally in love with your life anyways?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you relate to this? I’d love to hear from you💓
