Growing up as an overweight child, I was surrounded by negative voices that attempted to bring down my confidence. These gloomy remarks and criticism seriously impacted my sense of self. It was during this period of my life that I started to understand the true power of words. I understood that words have the ability to hurt people, and the ability to hinder people from achieving their dreams and goals and from becoming the best version of themselves.
Words can humiliate and make people feel unworthy. I also learned that words can heal the same wounds that they can cause. Words can uplift, inspire, help people become better. Words can also help people believe and embrace who they are! Words, like weapons, must be used responsibly, and I never would have learned this lesson had it not been for the strong mother figures that raised me. Watching these women and how they helped each other, how they had each other's back through thick and thin is the reason why I strongly believe in building strong and supportive communities. A supportive community is much more than a group of people, it's a feeling of togetherness, a feeling of positivity, and a feeling of support.
Why Self Love
The day I understood the power of words was the day I understood that words are not only destructive when they come out of the mouths of other people. The way we speak to ourselves can be equally, if not more,
destructive. So it’s important that we pay very close attention to how we talk to ourselves. In many instances, this can dictate how we talk to others. Growing up with an understanding of the power of words inspired me to help people by only using positive, genuine and well-meaning words. It’s amazing how quickly someone’s mood can change when you speak to them from the heart and when you genuinely listen to them. There’s no better form of self-love then speaking to yourself with kindness and actually being kind to yourself, to actually take it easy, and give yourself some patience to grow, to learn, to make mistakes and to forgive yourself. We want to implement this kind of self-love using just words at the core of what we do. You’ll see it in our product descriptions, in assorted language throughout our website, our ads, our customer service, and soon our packages. Once you step into MyGoGoStore, we want you to have an uplifting experience, we want you to take a deep breath, relax, embrace yourself, be in the moment, and let your self-love manifest.
Someone once told me, “Whatever you do in life, make sure that you do it with your heart.” I was 15 years old when my cousin’s troubled ex-husband spoke those words to me. Those words have been following me ever since, because when he spoke those words, I saw past his issues, past his problems, I saw him as a kid, speaking to me from his heart. His marriage had just ended, yet he found it in him to speak those words to me. I felt inspired, and it moved me to always give 140%, because if we’re not going to give it our all, what’s the point? There is a lot at stake if we give just enough, we’re risking making people’s lives better, we’re risking not inspiring the youth and people in general, we’re risking not reaching our fullest potential, and we will never know what we are capable of doing until we go all in. So quality is a must here at MyGoGoStore, we must ensure that you, our customer enjoy your experience, that you find the help you need when you need it, and that the products you buy meet your expectations.
Time is like a leaf in the wind, so it’s easy to forget where we came from, who we started with, who helped us get to where we are today, and the core values that make us, us. It’s life. Sometimes we need to take a moment and adjust our focus to what really matters to us because time is such a scarce resource. To quote Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Which is why we are committed to authenticity, to always putting you, our customer, first. But, as we have learned, it takes a village, and we encourage all of our customers to actively participate in the process of maintaining that level of authenticity, we encourage you to call us out whenever you think we are being derailed from our core values, because you have a say in this, your voice is heard, your voice is appreciated and your voice is more than just considered - it is acted upon. You have a say in the future of MyGoGoStore. Let’s work together to keep it authentic, to water it in order to help it flourish into something that inspires members of communities to dream big and never lose hope. Keeping ourselves authentic is more than a core value, it’s our legacy, it’s a reminder that anything is possible without ever having to compromise who you are by simply embracing everything about you.
