Being on my own since I was 15, it felt like all I heard was that the odds were against me.
Growing up in impoverished neighborhoods, being homeless and dependent on the system as a child, seeing the worst in my parents and experiencing neglect and tragedy at a young age,
surrounded by violence and anger, or becoming a “statistic” by becoming a teen mom. Even during labor with my first child I heard negativity and opinions on “babies having babies”. And you know what the odds would’ve been, IF I had listened to them instead of my heart and my gut
This is why I have little to no patience for anyone who adopts that victim mindset b/c I know what can be accomplished. It’s frustrating to see the lack of family support and a continued concerted effort to break down the family structure because this is where education... and support begins.
Fighting through adversity is key to any successes I’ve had in my life. Its accomplished by recognizing the fight in you, understanding that you’re capable of more. It’s a feeling deep inside that you can’t shake that should be used...
to fuel your passion and your pursuit for better. During this type of journey, it’s not uncommon to come across naysayers and doubters who will try everything in their power to shake you from achieving your greatness. Don’t listen to them, press on.
If there isn’t a community of people who can offer support, find one - remember solutions, not excuses. I’m not sure why God wanted me to share that dark part of my past, but I’m trusting that gut feeling and going with it. I’ll end this by saying...
I know now that my life’s purpose was to change the course and break the vicious cycle my family established. It began when I was blessed with becoming a mother at 17. I look back at everything my husband and I have accomplished since we were kids and there’s no doubt that it..
was Gods work. My next chapter is to work toward leaving a legacy for my children/grandchildren. ❤️
