Growing up as the little fat kid in school, I learned that people are mean. As a teenager searching for acceptance, I learned that men suck and it’s real easy to make a baby. As an adult, I realize that most people really are mean…Most men don’t suck…And after 5 kids…….Well you get my point.
We spend our whole lives growing up. We face challenges that help us to grow as a person. It is up to us to find the positive and seek spiritual guidance to make it through those challenges.
People judge others and tell each other what to do, but people don’t think about what they are doing until they are faced with similar challenges.
The important thing about growing up is that we realize that where we have been has lead us to where we are…Where we are leads us to where we are going.
There is no reason to hold any regrets in life. Every challenge is given to us to give us the strength we need to survive in this World. That there, is the positive that must be found in each challenge. Whether you are a single parent, married, experiencing confusion in love, or just trying to find yourself…etc. You are the only person that can live through your challenges.
Don’t allow others to destroy who you are or where you are going. Surround yourself with positive people that will keep you motivated and moving forward.
I have faith in you, and I need for you to have faith in yourself.
