First of all Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers and mother figures out there; whether they’re mothers, grandmothers, aunts, friends, sisters, or whatever mother figure you are; thank you for always being there.
Now, I want to share with you what I thought during this long adventure i’ve been, or i’m still , in.
Don’t give up
Don’t stop trying
You can do this
You will get there
Prove them wrong
Never look back
Don’t doubt yourself
You will make it
It will only get better
Look on the bright side
The best is yet to come
Who cares what they say? You can do it
You know you’re strong, show them
These are all the thoughts that have been running through my head these past three years, and they have helped me make it. It’s not easy, but looking on the bright side has been the best thing to help me get through it all. It takes courage, hard work, and a lot of positive thinking, but it all pays off in the end. I encourage everyone to do this when things get difficult. Stop looking at the worse thing that can happen and look at the best thing that can happen.
It doesn’t matter who you were, it’s who you are and who you can/will be. I was a very insecure person, but today, I don’t see that person anymore. I see a girl very sure of who she is and where she wants to go, an optimistic and brave woman. I have been through the toughest moment in my life, so far, and I came out strong. I’m still not done fighting, but I already went through the most difficult part, and I’m ok. I’m stronger. I am more proud of myself than I ever thought possible. And other people are proud of me too. People I don’t, or barely know.
I want other people to have these same feelings I have, that anything is possible if you just try, that you should never give up just because it’s difficult; and that sometimes you have to ask for help. You cannot do everything alone, you have to trust people and there are still very good people out there. There are people that know more than you. Listen to them. There are people who don’t know more than you. Teach them. You don’t have to be a student to learn, or a teacher to tech. I have not been studying for three years; but I have learned a lot about life, who I am, and who I can be. I still need and want to go back to school; I just have to figure out how, but ill get there. But I have still been learning and there are things you don’t learn in the class room, and can be more useful than learning the Periodic Table. At least if you don’t like science, if you do, go ahead and learn it.
