A few weeks ago I turned 25. As this life landmark approached, instead of growing excited for this momentous day, I found myself indulging in many sessions of self-doubt. I doubted my worth because I was a young lady in my mid-20s who had not reached a single of my goals. As a matter of fact, I was unemployed without any career prospects, living with my parents, surviving off rice because groceries were outside my budget and unable to pay for “the simple things” like gas.
Three weeks later I’m here with a new affirmation. My life may not be headed down the path I envisioned in my teen years, but it is not a disaster. I have a family that loves me conditionally. There are young persons I mentor who look up to me and appreciate me. I have travelled to places I had never heard of before a few years ago and am growing as both a photographer and writer everyday.
But more importantly, I have a dream and determination. I may not be able to see the destination right now, but these two will take me somewhere golden! In the mean time, I’m going to keep my stride and enjoy life’s ride Just Doing Me.
So what’chu waiting on? Who You waiting for?
If You don’t take a chance You’ll never know what’s in store!
