BE BRAVE, BE FEARLESS, BE YOU!
Your upbringing often shapes you and your perspective. I had a rough upbringing, but I believed that God would guide me to where I needed to be. He did. But still, I always settled for less than what I deserved. Sometimes God gives you what you prayed for, but you do not receive it because you never truly believed it. I always had this idea in the back of my head what if this happens. I was overwhelmed and overworked because I grew up on the ideals of survival and not living. I spent so much time focusing on plan B and not enough time on plan A. I never realized I was standing in the way of my purpose. Then my son came along, and I could not imagine not having time to spend with him. So I made a goal; I told myself that I wanted to work smarter and not harder.
I decided that I wanted to thrive and truly live, not just survive. It took me a long time to let go of the idea that I had to work or grind continually, practically killing myself to be successful. I had to learn to say no, know when to ask for help, and how to ask for help. I had to stop undervaluing myself, undervaluing my work. I had to learn to make sure that I am aligned in all ways within myself and my purpose. Sometimes the only solution is taking that risk. Sometimes you have to stop thinking and do. Don’t try, do it, do your best. That is how we grow; that is how we learn. That is what I did, what I am doing, and it is why I am here today with the hope of helping others by sharing my journey.
