Time and time again we come across this point in life where we question ourselves are we happy? Is this where I want my life to be? Sometimes we let life get the best of us and it takes us a whole other route and because we get so caught up in it we forget who we are, what we want, and who we stand for. I have hit many of those points in life and have had many downfalls. Although I am still young and living trying to build my dreams, I have come across many difficulties in life and cross roads that have left me feeling so lost and alone. I have had moments where life just took me by surprise and moments I felt the lowest of the low. Through everything I have been through so far in life what I have learned to take with me and hold on to is my positivity. I have a very old soul and I am a caretaker. I don’t have many enemies because I believe you shouldn’t burn your bridges with people because at one point or another you may need to turn to them. Some don’t understand how I can be so forgiving and let things go but its called not letting your ego and pride get the best of you. No matter who you care for I have come to learn at some point in time and someway everyone is going to disappoint you. You can do for others because your a kind person and want to help but never do it with intentions of expecting something in return. People are funny that way and so I tend to count on me the most because when those are there for me its an even greater feeling and I appreciate it more. I always have people asking how can I forgive this person but I forgive because I want to move on with my life not for them to feel better but because holding grudges holds you back from moving forward in what you can aspire to be in life.
I have come to think a lot about what truly inspires me and the answer to that is definitely my family because everything I do is to make sure us as a family will be okay in our future. I have also come to the conclusion that I inspire myself. I may sound a little conceited or full of myself but I truly inspire myself because recently I sat down and thought back to a year ago when I was going through really rough times but I pulled through and I just keep going. I feel so many things cross my path still and I am stronger than before to keep going and pushing for greater in my life. I see many people that suffer and let it control their lives and so my strength and positivity have lead me to appreciate more and inspires me to want to share these tips with others. I couldn’t see my worst enemy going through a rough time without me at least asking are you okay? So many people are mean and selfish and they don’t realize that the most positive people have the biggest impact on this earth. Not the liars and cheaters who sped through life because they know how to manipulate but the real people who want to get a message across to the world. I have a strong message to get out there and I am willing to work hard to do it! Don’t let people determine who you are but do listen when constructive criticism is given because these are the moments that you have to pay attention to in order to create change to an unhappy situation. I live to see others happy but I am also learning I have to make my happiness as well! It is so important to be content with who you are because those are the ones who survive in this cruel, cold world.
