Circumstances led me to grow up very quickly as a child.

At 12, I was working part time after school, cooking and keeping house. This prepared me quickly for what life is like, its hard but it is worthwhile if you choose it to be worthwhile.

If you dwell on the past, it holds you back from your true potential. Your past becomes a prison, a crutch, an excuse. Don’t let this happen. Don’t let your past define you. Our past shapes us, yes, but we can choose which route we take. Do you step forward or do you keep on looking over your left shoulder.

I chose to place all my past baggage on the floor and walk forward – free of anger, free of sadness and move into a better mental space. Emotions are good, feel them, show them but don’t let them dominate your life. Use every moment of this life to be the best version of you.

Don’t use blame as your scapegoat. Blaming your past just holds you back from your full potential. Break those chains, walk forward and you will be amazed how free you will feel.

Be Brave. Be Fearless. Be the best YOU !

Much Love
