This is a guest post written by Erika Turner.
Two days ago, I made one of the biggest transitions of my life – leaving a familiar city for one in which I never dreamed of living. No, really. New York was never my ideal, but writing or “living the creative life” always has been. So, here I am. And in the months leading up to this event, I’ve struggled. Not only with the decision to move or with plans concerning how the hell I was going to support myself, but with confidence. With convincing myself I was worthy enough to pursue my dreams, despite the seemingly insurmountable work I know I must do to ever be comfortable in my own skin, to love myself and move beyond my flaws.
Then, several days before my move, during a series of events through which I’m sure the Lord was testing my patience, my resolve, and perhaps my sanity, Beyoncé dropped her new album. Go ahead, roll your eyes. I’ll wait.
