A lot of you know nothing about me. A lot of you "think" you know all about me. The truth is, VERY few of you really know me at all and that's not a bad thing. Keeping your circle very, very small is key to a happy, healthy life. Maaaaaan, did it take me far too long to learn this!
I've spent the last 5 years finding myself and my happiness. Now, some may say that I went off the deep end, or I wasn't myself. I say I spent that time searching. I'm not ashamed of where I came from or where I've been. I've been at the top AND I've been at the very bottom. Soul searching doesn't come easy and it definitely isn't always pretty. Only the strong survive.
The last two years have been the best years of my life. I am finally living a life I love and that I can share with others. I wake up smiling. I go to bed smiling. Life isn't perfect by any means but it's been a hell of a lot worse. I spend my days investing in myself and continuing to strive for greatness. I indulge in self development daily. I'm working on my walk with Christ. I've prayed for direction numerous times. I was led to work a business I love with some great women. (I love the products too!) As much as I love that business, I had to take a step back because I knew that wasn't the only thing God had in store for me. I've been at my ultimate lowest point in life and I've worked my ass off to get to where I am and I continue to work at it because this is where I want to be.
For the last several years I invested a lot of time and research into credit repair. I'm very happy to say that I finally took the steps that I needed to become certified! Although this was a huge step in the right direction for my career, I still wasn't completely satisfied. There was still a void that I knew I needed to fill. I've always said that no matter how much I've been hurt in the past or how many times I've unintentionally hurt others, I wouldn't change it for anything. It's made me who I am today. It's made me a strong, opinionated, independent woman who isn't afraid to speak up when something isn't right. It's made me realize that the people I called friends weren't actually friends. It's made me realize that I am content with my own company and I don't need to be surrounded by people that don't have my best interest at heart. It's made me realize that I have nothing to prove to anyone. I used to be the queen of subliminal messages taking jabs at whoever, whenever to make myself feel better or to prove how "happy" I was. What I failed to realize at the time was I was a miserable person, keeping miserable company.
If you knew me in the past, I can assure you that you no longer know me. I've been investing most of my time developing my better self which led me to the realization that I was dealt the hand that I was dealt in life to become strong enough to help those that haven't had the support that I have had through my struggle. I'm more than happy to announce that I have passed my exam to be a certified life coach.
