The journey to self

is a solo one.

“Waking up to yourself is different for everyone. It is as unique as a fingerprint. An awakening is an individualized experience based on your inner Being’s plan, purpose and mission. It is your blueprint for your personal growth and evolution. Waking up to your own consciousness is a rebirth. It is messy. It is gritty. Just like the birth of a child, a rebirth is the most painful yet beautiful gift for the evolution of humans.”

- An excerpt from Vanessa Rochelle's self-help/motivational book. Six Aspects of Being
