If you would have told me 10 years ago that this would be my life I probably would have laughed at you. So insecure, broken, and lost. I felt like I had nothing and no one in my life. I was on a path of serious destruction and didn't see the point of anything anymore. To this day I can't pin point exactly what it was that snapped me out of it, but I thank God everyday for saving me. It was literally over night I decided no more and I was going to make a change. And I mean a serious 180, to the point of people laughing at me, telling me I was never going to accomplish the things I was talking about, and feeling more alone than ever. .
Today I signed a contract accepting a job I've worked so hard to get. I was never handed anything, I didn't have the encouragement and support of people telling me I could do it. I worked and worked and worked my butt off, even when it seemed pointless. Getting to where I am has definitely been an uphill battle, but looking back I wouldn't trade any of it. Overcoming the struggles in my life has made me into the person I am today. .
Your happiness, your relationships, your job, your ideal body, anything you want in life... please never stop working at it. I don't care how old you are, how alone you feel, or how out of reach it seems. It's your job and your job only to create the life you want. .
I'm not even close to the future I'm imagining for myself, but I'll tell you what. I've come this far and I'm going to soak in every moment of it and never stop being grateful for this journey. Cheers to a new chapter and another year of proving to myself just how hard I can actually push. .
I hope this sparks something in you to know that we all struggle, we all have good times and bad, but that's what makes our story unique. It's what makes us beautiful as humans. Be proud of your story and become the best version of yourself you can be.
Love y'all. Thanks for reading❤
