I have always had the desire to be a leader, I’ve always had passion, and I’ve always been one to go after my dreams with an unbreakable force but I always found myself running in circles because I never knew how to execute.
I wrote motivational journal entries for no one to read. When people asked me what my future held, all I could spit out was “I just want to help people”. Once my concussions and injuries caused me to quit soccer, the athlete inside of me always felt empty when I went to the gym because I was never competing for anything.
Therefor it felt like I was trying to reach something that kept moving further and further away from me. I’m sure you can relate to this to some level.
Not to be dramatic or anything, but I was living in my own personal hell that I made for myself.
You bet I stared at myself in the mirror asking myself the same thing every morning, “if I died, what would people remember me by? The girl who had potential but never knew what to do with it? The girl who was strong enough to preserver through any pain or obstacle just to be known as someone to feel sorry for? What. Is. My. Purpose. Why. Is. This. Happening. To. Me.” I was at rock bottom at this point; Overweight, going to school for something I wasn’t passionate about, and in a very abusive relationship. Because that’s what I thought I deserved.
Until one day I just said f it. I’m going to start fighting back because I have nothing left to lose. And there it was-the missing puzzle piece.
Myself. The “thing” I was looking for was LITERALLY staring right at me as I asked what my purpose was. Just. Being. Myself. Capitalizing on the activities and passions I had, and I fell in love with my life. My journals are now publicized to you through social media, I am helping people grow to be strong by making them realize their strength, I am going to school to help people with nutrition, and I lift to a competitive level.
Takeaway message: You are meant to be you, and to believe in yourself. And you were born with everything you need to be you, now go chase your dreams.
