I came to a crossroads in my life recently, as we all do from time to time.
I had a choice to make and it was likely to forge a new path for me..
And that’s exactly what I needed.
I couldn’t keep going through the motions and pretending I was happy…
Because I whave been anything but happy and at peace lately.
I made mistakes, yes, but we all do.
We aren’t defined by what knocks us down, but rather what we do after we fall.
I’m choosing not to stay down, not to be angry and bitter..
I am better than that and I only have one person to prove that to and it’s myself.  
I’ve always had the vision to see the big picture but lacked the courage to lift myself out of the situations that hurt me.
I couldn’t see outside of myself and I let all them emotions get the best of me.
No more.
I’m better than that.
I can choose to be.
I’m strong enough, smart enough and passionate enough to make the hard choices, choose the difficult path and become more than I have before.
I know it won’t be easy.
I know it will hurt.
I know it won’t be quick.
But I’m worth it - Im just now seeing the path that I had  closed off from myself.
To rise above.
To act with honor and character.
To evolve into more than I’ve ever been before.
It’s not enough to know that I have  talents- we all have those.
It’s the rare person that can hone those talents and grow with each step…
So that’s just what I’m doing.
I won’t get where I want to be today, tomorrow or next week,
But I’ll find my way.
Maybe all the pain I’ve felt has made me stronger and all the tears I’ve cried worked to clear my vision to finally see myself and my path for what it’s always been:
Waiting for me to start being the person I’m meant to be…
And I can’t wait for that day when I can look in the mirror and smile,
Knowing that I finally did it.
With courage, strength and love, I became proud-
Of who am, where I’ve been and what the future holds.
That’s what dreams are made of-
Me and everything I’m becoming.
I’m going to keep rising.
