Wow I can’t believe I just turned 18 years old!!
I live with my AMAZING mom and dad who love me unconditionally and support and encourage me in anything and everything I choose to take on in this crazy life. They are the most important people in my life and no matter what, they have my back. I am an only child and very blessed!!
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be an actress! I lived thru some crazy stuff with people in my life. What they tried to do to me was unimaginable, and my trust in GOD and my awesome parents are what carried me through the healing of those memories. I had a choice to make. I could focus on the why anyone could do such things to someone OR I could CHOOSE to help others.
I CHOSE to be a positive influence and role model for young girls and teenagers, and show that no matter what the circumstances are in your life, or the challenges you face, you can achieve your dreams and goals in life without giving up your morals and integrity. YOU choose your future!!
I will never understand why people make some of the choices they do and willfully hurt other people (especially children), but what I do know is that God will always take care of us and direct us in the way we should go if we just listen. Unfortunately, there are people in this world that will try to squash your dreams and goals, steal your happiness and hurt you in unimaginable ways (even those who claim to be family and/or friends).
But, thankfully, there are even more people who will love you and support you. Surround yourself with those who lift you up and help you stay focused on your goals. Never give up on your dreams and passion!! You CAN be all that you dream of being!! (And when those that tried to hurt or squash you want back in…..leave them in the past where THEY chose to be in your life with THEIR actions!). Remember…Forgiving does NOT mean forgetting. It means YOU move on healthy with the love of God and others and withOUT them. Be STRONG and carry on!
CHOOSE TO BE YOU, strong; determined; healthy; whole.
