I’ve had to start over several times: relationships, friendships, motherhood, jobs, school, but I did it and I know I can do it again. New beginnings are always scary but they can also be refreshing. Knowing you’re going to meet new people, build more bonds, and learn new things.
I worked in hotels for 14 years before I gave up and decided to go back to school for a new career. Was I scared? Hell yeah, but I knew that it would benefit me and my babies in the end. Now, I’ve been a pharmacy technician for 2 years. Do I like it? Yes, but I’m still not happy. I know that I am destined to be greater and do more.
It took me 16 years, 2 failed, long-term relationships, and 4 kids later for me to realize that this is NOT what I want. This is NOT my destiny. This is NOT how I envisioned my life to be. I had my life damn near mapped out and nothing went as planned. But that’s where the patience, persistence, and strength come in.
I am now determined to get out of the rut that I am in. I am going to be able to do what matters most: provide better for my family, become a successful businesswoman, and leave behind a legacy that my babies can be proud of. I am going to exercise all the many talents God has blessed me with and put them to good use. At the end of the day, I want to be able to help other women and single mothers like me.
*Bless others and you will be blessed for eternity*
