Having this little girl rewarded me in so many ways that I never thought possible. I received a best friend, a supporter, a little comedian, a sassy diva, a ball of happiness!
What many saw as a burden, I saw as proof that strong women never let obstacles get in their way. Many devalued me because of my choice to be a mom, and a single mom at that. They thought I would not be able to enrich my life and make something out of it. And here I am, proving everyone wrong. Teaching my daughter to be somebody instead of somebody’s has been my greatest choice.
Every single day I push to be the woman I want my daughter to be. Goal-oriented, hard working, confident, independent, educated, kind hearted, humble, successful. There are always new ones to add to the list because there is always room for improvement and growth. Being a mother is not easy and God knows I fall short of being a perfect example or mother on a daily. I strive for her to see someday that no matter how difficult the journey, how many people doubt you, how many mistakes, you can never give up on yourself, your success, or your dreams.
Behind every successful woman is herself!
Not the opinions of others. She might look at me with admiration but ultimately, I am HER biggest fan.
