And with a history of prositiution, $3k in her pocket, an upgraded wardrobe in her luggage, a new vision of herself, a tonne of self worth, love in her heart and her mind, she walked straight past him, with tears in her eyes and a yearning heart and left.
She had experienced what it felt like to be a queen, loved and cared for, supported, dressed to her level of beauty and she decided never to go back to basement level. She loved him but she loved herself more and she wasnt gonna settle.
I think I watched this movie a couple 100 times and each time I am fascinated by how it inspires me. This modern Cinderella story where a woman goes from dungeon to penthouse. She grabs on to her worth and never ever lets it go.
And this is what its all about ladies
There is no dress or high priced coat that is going to give you self worth, no man, no money no luxury treatment will get you to decide that you want more and settling for less is a detriment. It happens somewhere in between your heart and your gut and the minute it explodes, there is no going back. Then it calls in what aligns with that worthiness - money, man, riches, standards, morals, choices, ethics, lifestyle and what you truly want for yourself
If you're free tonight, grab some honey popcorn, a fizzy strawberry Aloe drink and press play.
Let the movie show you which parts of you, you are 'prostituting'. Your heart, your soul, your sacredness, your energy. Don't worry, this is not judgements, we have all prostituted a part of us to the detriment of our mental and physical health. Use it as an exercise to tap into where you are settling, who is taking and never returning, what you are allowing in your space and how you are going about life in general. This alone should start the spark inside you and if it's anywhere as strong as mine was when I realised my shortcomings, it will definitely make you get up, get under a cold shower and pack your bags for a higher journey.
If its not there, you've allowed yourself to go too deep in that dungeon and I invite you to see what you're gonna do to get yourself out.
So Woman, go get Pretty from the inside out and walk down YOUR Rodeo Drive like you own it
