THE PLEDGE

Dejah-Millena \ ˈday, sha, mill lee na/ • a vibe 

For most of us, somewhere in your 20s you realize you aren't where you want to be in life. 
 
With every year that passes, you ask yourself why haven't you been reaching the goals you set out for yourself? Why aren't you evolving into the person you'd always envisioned yourself to be?

If you're searching for a greater purpose or wondering what greater cause you serve, I want to challenge you to introspectively figure out why you've plateaued. Why aren't you where you want to be in life? Why are you self-sabotaging?

Self-sabotage [ self-sab-uh-tahzh ]: When part of your personality acts in conflict with another part of your personality.

Now you're probably thinking, why would I intentionally stand in my own way? But notice within that question, therein lies a key word--"intentionally". You aren't intentionally delimiting yourself. But sometimes, even you have a weird tendency to fuck yourself over when you start to see progress. Let me give you examples: 

Have you done any of the following. Just when things are going well:

  1. You text your toxic ex-boyfriend/girlfriend and reopen doors you've already shut.
  2. You scroll through Instagram for hours even though you have a project due tomorrow. 
  3. You binge watch Netflix instead preparing yourself for an important life-changing meeting.

Sometimes you can't foresee self-sabotage and in most cases you don't even know when you're doing it.  

STAY WITH ME BECAUSE THIS PART IS IMPORTANT:

Personally, I was tired of doubting myself. I couldn't even give myself a fair chance to succeed because every step of the way I was sabotaging my growth.

Eventually I got real with myself and I got to the root of my problems. But when I'd finally recognized the problem, I allowed distractions to divert my attention and give myself an excuse to procrastinate.
 

So I wrote out my long term dreams and zoned in those goals like a mot%af$ck#. I deleted apps that I didn't need like Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram (temporarily).
 
I took it a step further. I decided to purge myself, to put my phone away every time I wore my chest bag outside the house. I knew having a physical item to remind me of this goal would help. And it did.
 
I wanted to be present and give others my undivided attention to find REAL and genuine friendships.
 

Even when I took myself out on dates, I refused to mindlessly scroll through social media.
 

Cutting out these distractions and taking a break away from my phone absolutely changed my life. I started to accomplish more goals and get shit done.
 

And I want you to experience this feeling of truly knowing yourself so well you can freely navigate this confusing a#$ world knowing you're living the life you're meant to live. It sounds cheesy AF but I'm happier than ever.

Listen I can't pretend like this challenge is for everyone.

This challenge is asking a lot of you. Most people aren't capable of going to the depths of introspection that I am asking you to go
 
I'm asking you to look within yourself to really figure out what's stopping you from getting it done? To self-diagnose.
 
If you're ready to discover what's on the other side. Take the pledge.

To those of you who’ve found your way to my collection, thank you.

Eternally grateful,
