"There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid, confused, without a road map. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our lives. Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back. But once in a while, people push on to something better, something found just beyond the pain of getting it alone. And just beyond the bravery and courage to let someone in or to give someone a second chance. Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream. Because it's only when you're tested that you truly discover who you are. And it's only when you're tested that you discover who you can be. The person you want to be does not exist somewhere on the other side of hard work, faith, believe. And beyond the heartache and fear of what lies ahead." Unknown
I can't remember a single time in my life that I didn't have people telling me what to do or giving me their advice even without me asking for it. I have always had someone in the background trying to influence my life. Don't get me wrong. I am very grateful that I have so many people in my life who love me enough to care what I do and how I do it. However, there comes a point in our lives when we have to decide for ourselves who we are going to be and how we are going to do things. My life has been filled with many crossroads where I had to make a decision right there who I was going to be and how I was going to face the situation at hand. All the hard things that you will go through in this life are a way for you to show yourself what your made of. To prove to yourself that hard work, dedication, and courage pay off. No matter what all those voices may be saying, You are good enough, You are beautiful, You are strong, You know what matters most to you and you can be whoever you want to be in this life. Let the moments define you and discover who you truly are.
