I believe we were meant to meet.
Well, hello friend.
Since, you are here. I guess you are wondering
“Who the heck is Tiffany Lit’Shae”
Well, are you ready for a story? I’ll try to keep it short, but some of the details are a little too juicy to keep out.
At 25, I had it all. A blossoming career, what I thought would be a future husband, and bustling lifestyle in the heart of Chicago. Perfect life, right? Wrong. On one fateful night, I found myself sitting in my bed surrounded in a puddle of tears. As thoughts of suicide swarmed my head, I had to admit that life was not as perfect as it seemed. So I did what every woman does when she is going through a mental crisis. I cut off my hair and restarted my life.
With my boo and sporting a brand new do, I made the drastic decision to move across the United States to Los Angeles. One and a half years, two jobs, and three heartbreaks later, the mysticism of the city ran dry. I found myself sadder than ever. I was forced to sit down and take a close look at my life, my friends, and my career. Like a divine lightning bolt, the reason I was so unhappy hit me.
I didn’t truly love myself. Because I didn’t love myself, I made a lot of stupid decisions. I chased men who were incapable of love. I took a job that made me miserable and I chose friends who didn’t push me closer to my purpose. On top of that, I was always hard on myself.
To discover who I was, I had to do the hardest work I have ever done—heart-work. When I made the decision to heal my heart, things began to change.
Life began to work for me rather than against me. I found when I gave love to myself, I was able to give more to others.
I wanted other women to feel the same internal love in their lives. So, I founded the S.E.L.F Love Movement to teach women and young girls how to fearlessly lead in their homes, communities, and careers by taking the time to nurture and love their authentic self. We pour into others without hesitation, but stumble and stutter when it comes to pouring love and happiness into ourselves. We tell ourselves that we do not deserve love. That ends today, because,
“YOU DESERVE THE SAME LOVE YOU SO FREELY GIVE TO OTHERS”
My life is not perfect, BUT it is full of love and to me that is the greatest gift I have ever received.
