It’s easy to ask ‘what if?’ the hard part is asking the question then acting on it.
Never stop feeding your curiosity. Your brain is the one investment that will pay dividends for a lifetime.
Open your mind to the concept of saying yes to whatever elevates you spiritually and no to whatever dims your excellence.
Never forget that you are the sum of experiences, emotions, thoughts and actions. Never subtract from that sum to become a different equation.
Know your worth. Don’t offer discounts on what you are and never become less than who you are to fit someone else’s vision.
Don’t let your reticence to make a mistake leave you frozen in indecision.
Stop wasting time trying to cross someone else’s finish line. Their end game is not for you.
And then I realized, being selfish was the healthiest thing I could do for myself. I realized I needed to invest in myself before I expected to become more. I needed to see where I begin to pave the roads to where I could go.
I am not my past. I am not my mistakes. I am not the one-dimensional view you have of me, nor the one I have of myself. I am more than my fears, am less than perfect and am finally ready to give myself permission to test my wings.
You see a closed door, I see a window. You see a rejection letter, I see motivation. You see a break-up, I see a situation that will lead me to “the one”. It’s all about perspective.
