Through it all, the quote “pain into power” has flashed through my mind over & over. I used to be so mad, I would walk on the treadmill blasting music looking blankly ahead of me knowing there was a reason this was all happening, I just had to stay strong. There have been so many fighting moments because when you lose sight of who you are, you lose sight of almost everything that sets your soul on fire. It’s like your mind goes into fight mode because it has to do everything it can to simply fight for you.
You will have to remove people from your life & replace them with people that align with your vision. Let go of your pride & be willing to make mistakes publicly & privately. The growth is in the moments where you feel the most vulnerable & when you learn to show all of the sides of yourself that make you so unique & so special, that is when you will be able to fully step into your authenticity & walk confidently on the path meant just for you.
If I cared what people thought I wouldn't be anything. I never craved the support of my peers, honestly, the people that wish for my downfall don’t know how much drive they give me to be even better. We all have our obstacles, so learn how to jump.
So if you’re struggling right now with anything, just know it is because you are being prepared for your next big step. There is always a bigger picture, we just aren’t able to step back and admire it until we’ve been through all of the things that make that picture what it is.
In the moment of your hardships it will be hard to redirect your vision from the negatives & realign your focus on the things that matter the most. I think that being at your lowest is often more of a blessing than people think.
As girls, it needs to be normalized to talk about big goals without being perceived as conceited or egotistical. It is so inspiring to me when I can see someone's eyes light up when they talk about the dreams they have in their heart. How can you listen to someone speak about something that sets their soul on fire & not want to encourage them?
Whatever is meant for you is still out there for you to go get, & you don’t need anything but the quiet intentions that God has instilled in your heart.
"We all have the same 24 hours, & you have so much power locked inside of you. Find the keys & unlock it, babe, because the world is waiting for that magic."
Life is full of curveballs, but there’s always another door if the one you knock on doesn’t open. Plus, if the road to your dreams is difficult, that just makes the success story that much greater. <3
