You start out on your own with the best intentions of living your best life, and sometimes stuff happens, everyday stuff, life stuff and one can find themselves easily derailed for period of time. It is so important to get back on track. To live your best life....everyday.
Who you want to be now is probably not who you set out to be when you were young. All of your experiences can sometimes change things and who you want to be when you "grow up".
But I have to say, who I want to be now is far better and so much more than who I wanted to be at seventeen. I want to be a strong mom, a healthy and fit mom, a woman my children can look up to, and to be a good example of what you can make out of...nothing, actually.
My family has been through a lot; between health and the economy in the potty, it is more than I care to write about. However, looking back on past mistakes and circumstances can effect who you are now...and not for the better.
I have learned that living your best life means constantly moving forward.
I strive to live my best life everyday, to create a wonderful environment for my children, to be a strong example of what you can achieve, and the utmost importance of not just having dreams, but going after (sometime you have to run after) them.
Find what you are incredibly passionate about and do it! (eventually the money will follow)
