Sometimes life doesn’t go as we planned, jobs end, career paths change, loves and relationships die, friendships fade and things change. However, with all the change, we somehow end up where we were meant to be. Though we want to be in control of everything, we’re not always in control of every aspect of our lives. Things change, things fall apart and better things come into your life. You stumble and find opportunities along the way. Our passions grow, change and sometimes change paths. Yet, as long as we do things that make us happy and surround ourselves with people who support you, love you and believe in you, things will somehow work out. At least, that’s my way of thinking. There’s no reason to rush things, they come when the time is right for you.
We are the product of our families, of our upbringings, of our society, our beliefs, and our failures and we should embrace it all to become who we are. If there’s something you have your heart set on, whether it’s traveling around the world, opening a successful business, becoming a mother/father/wife/husband, coming up with a cure for a disease or just living a happy life, don’t let the obstacles get in the way. For me, my passion is writing and becoming a successful writer. That’s not a path that’s been easy, it’s not a job you get a degree and are qualified for, apply and get. It’s a career that’s based on talent and other’s opinion of your style and if you fit in or not with their goals. There’s more to it than studying it, learning it and getting a job at the end. I haven’t given up, and with each step I’m shown that I haven’t given up for a reason. Each small success is that much more meaningful because I’ve had to fight for it – fight hard! I’m not filled with wise words, I still stumble and get frustrated around the way. So fight for what you want, clear out the negativity and people who bring you down and you’ll soon stumble upon success.
“The women of today are the thoughts of their mothers and grandmothers, embodied, and made alive. They are active, capable, determined and bound to win. They have one thousand generations back of them…”

“Out with everything you don’t need—the junk, clutter, hang-ups and hurts—and in with the fresh, fantastic, unencumbered life you’ve always wanted.”
