It finally hit me…Life is what you make it. There is no other way to put it. There is no guru to bring forth your desires. As helpful as they may be, all of the life coaches in the world cannot gift you with your destiny. There is no magic ball to answer the questions of your existence.
The answer is within you. YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR REALITY. YOU CONTROL THE SUCCESS IN YOUR LIFE (Or lack thereof)! YOU ARE THE REASON THAT DREAMS COME TRUE.
The question is do you want them to? Do you want to be successful and live the life of YOUR dreams?
Truth: For a while, my dreams scared me. They still do. The goals I have seem way to grand to achieve. How’s a girl from the Bronx, New York, born at a city hospital around Fordham Road supposed to “make it?” What makes me different from every other person from The Bronx? These questions allowed my fears to outweigh my destiny.
Fear is crippling. It places you in a box that sometimes is hard to climb out of. As a result of my fears, there are some consequences that I have to live with. The good thing is that through this process of fear, I acknowledge my strength.
I acknowledge that there is a source of power within me that allows me to keep going, keep pushing, and to never give up. “With God all things are possible.” I believe it. I know the lifestyle I desire, the romantic relationship I desire, the career I desire, the friendships I need in my life etc. I acknowledge these things and the importance of each to my personal joy.
I also understand that some decisions, as outlandish as they might be are helping to mold me into a better version of myself. I am learning to become confident about what I want.
My youth depends on me. Within this “home” or this body that I was gifted lay a fervent curious little girl that loves adventure. She loves to write, she loves art and as awkwardly introverted as she may seem she loves meeting people. It adds character to her storybook (life).
One day you’ll have to decide who you gon’ be…a scary [person] or a [person] that’s gon’ rule like me – J.Cole
…and it hit me…I WANT TO RULE.
Join me as I step into this journey of living up to my fullest potential.
What a way to return, huh? I hope my words bring you divine peace.
