It’s easy to get caught up in the mundane, routine activities of life and forget about our dreams or passions, or even just let them take a back seat to the pressing matters of each day.
I would encourage people not to think on thoughts such as “What if I can’t do it?”, but rather, “What happens if I DON’T?” I read a great quote recently that said, If you’re going to do it, don’t worry, and if you’re going worry, don’t do it (Deena Katz). So many people wonder what will happen if they step out on something and fail, but what about if they never try? What if they stay stuck in the same dead-end situation for another 5 or 10 years? To me, THAT is what’s scary.
In the past 4 years that I’ve been living in VA, I have overcome several obstacles and fears. Those fears could have paralyzed me and stopped me from becoming the more confident young lady that I am today. I am free from all the mess I’ve been through. I will always remember situations and the scars are there. Now I wear my scars with honor, knowing that it can’t stop me from my destiny—the only one who can stop me is me! I share my story whenever I believe it can help someone—to to brag on myself, but to brag on what God has done for me, and encourage others.
No one can get in your way if you are staying true to yourself and following your purpose—no one but you.
