You do realize you don’t have to beat yourself up all the time about past mistakes or because you disappointed you and other people in your life right?
As humans we are expected to fail occasionally but the important thing is, what you do when you fall. Do you stay down or get back up and take with you lessons learned from the experience?
My personal journey to self discovery has been transformational. I have evolved now into a young woman with a PURPOSE. Years ago I had this strong yearning to be perfect (I grew up wanting to impress my parents), little did I know I was putting my life in a slow motion. Forgetting that you grow when you try and fail and keep trying till you get it right.
I had lots of business ideas and other things I wanted to do when I was younger but wouldn’t take risks because I was afraid of failure. Yet i wanted to be a success story, but how? Stagnation was my companion at that period in my life. It got so bad I could feel it. I began to ask myself questions I already knew the answers to.
At that point i knew it wouldn’t be fair to rob the world of the talent and gifts God gave me to share. Over the past few years i would reflect on the things i would do differently if given another chance. Alas, that was the moment i advised myself to take charge of my life. It was time to let go of fear. I decided to put it in a box and throw it away forever!
I am not even going to lie by painting a rosy picture that life has been smooth since then but hey, no one ever promised that life will be easy! There will be days of struggling and taking on great challenges but hold on, there’s always light at the end of a tunnel. Just do your part by working hard, be persistent like your life depends on it and see how things turn out.
So now what you may ask?
Well, I have a couple of projects I’m working on aside blogging to inspire and transform people that relate to my situation. I am working on my charity organization to see how much people I can help in my own little way. And some other things I will reveal on this blog as time goes on.
Individuals should take time out to reflect on their live occasionally. Are you living your dream? Are you willing and ready to put in the hardwork necessary to achieve your goals? What would you do differently if you could go back in time? What will the world remember you for when you’re long gone?
