I never had one of those lives where I could take it easy and just relax.
While everyone else could sit back and enjoy the ride, I had days full of challenges and nights full of struggle.
There wasn’t time to rest or the chance to do what I wanted..
For as long as I can remember, my life has been a journey of fires and storms.
Fires that tried to consume me and storms that were intent on drowning me..
None of that has ever stopped me, its only made me stronger.
There were many times that I was forced to my knees fighting for survival in a world that seemed determined to bring me down..
But each time, I got up, dusted myself off and found a way to keep going.
No one ever gave me much of a chance to make it, but then, I don’t need anyone’s approval or permission to be the independent, strong and empowered person that I am today. 
I’m not the one who will ask for help because I’ve never had anyone helping me during the hardest times of my life.
I’ve had to fight, battle and scrape every step of the way for everything I have.
So, I definitely don’t need to be fixed, saved or completed and I’m not holding out for a hero.
I learned a long time ago that no one was showing up to bail me out of the hard I did what I had to do and became the hero of my own story.
Maybe I don’t have a fancy costume or have a made up name, but i do have a superpower:
I’m fiercely unstoppable, each and every day.
That doesn’t mean I don’t get knocked down, that doesn’t mean I don’t have bad days..
But I don’t stay down and l’ll never give up.
So, all these times that the world and life has tried to break me?
All that did was make me stronger,wiser and better.
Now, thanks to all the people that hurt me, all the days that shattered me and all the times that I failed,
I know that I can do anything and overcome the obstacles that crash into my life.
I’m more than just a person, a brave heart and iron spirit.
I am a strong woman..and there’s nothing I can’t do.
