Change may not always be beautiful.
Change may not always be easy.
Change may not always be what you wanted.
It’s what you need.
Even in the hardest stages of change, it will be exactly what you need.
My life changed in literally seconds and all of my dreams were taken away from me.
Dreams from my childhood.
Dreams I had for my students.
Dreams I had for my future.
Literally gone because of selfishness.
When the realization hit me, so did depression, anxiety and PTSD.
I felt like I had failed.
I felt worthless.
Fast forward 5 and a half months...
Looking back on all the pain, heartache and change I endured, I realized it was what was needed for me in my life, at that time.
For me to grow, something tragic had to happen.
Was it awful? Yes.
Will I be a better person after it all? Absolutely.
I can’t let my circumstances define who I am and what I have done.
I know I can’t change everyone’s life, but I KNOW I can change parts of their lives and I already have.
My dreams aren’t over.
My dreams from when I was 16 are coming more and more realistic.
When I’m able to share them, you better believe I will.
It hasn’t been easy, actually it’s been very difficult.
But, I will come out of this victorious!! Don’t give up on your dreams because someone might say they’re too big
(In my case, too dangerous)
If it’s placed on your heart, don’t stop until you reach it. ❤️ God is good and always provides. 🙌🏽
