Raw honesty coming your way!
Learning to live in the present, and to let go of past mistakes. It is harder than it seems, but completely achievable.
This is where I am at now:
•I moved back in with my parents when I was 19 about to turn 20. I am 22 now.
•I don’t have a vehicle. YET.
•Money? I have $0.03 to my name.
•I am $9500 in debt because I am a beauty school drop out. It wasn’t for me. It was not my passion. You live and you learn.
•I am out of a job because I got laid off not too long ago.
Ya’lI am not putting this out there to be negative Nancy. I am putting this out there because I KNOW what it is like to have very little. I know what it is like to have everyday struggles that make you feel completely overwhelmed and lost. I know what it’s like to be depressed, lonely, anxious, and even angry. Especially when you try your hardest, and you never seem to get any results.
And what I’ve learned is. . . These are all just temporary circumstances. What you do everyday to better yourself is what truly matters.
That is why I wake up everyday and I push play on my workout program. I fight and I push through the pain I feel on the inside, and I focus on the reason why I started this journey. I pour the amount of love and respect into myself that I give so freely to others. If not even more than what I give to others.
This is what I do have:
•A roof over my head and food on the table.
•An amazing circle of people who push me to success and believe in me.
•A beautiful life that is worth living.
•Friends from other countries, different states, and a family that is rich in love.
•A joy that is my strength.
•A God that gives me His unconditional love and grace.
If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.
Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same. And my desire for change is stronger than its ever been.
Y’all, if you are in a tough spot in your life, believe me when I say. . . You need to stand up. Wipe the tears from your face, and fight like the victorious person you are. And have faith that everything will be OK.
