My childhood was not the easiest of childhoods. In fact, my story had quite a rough start, and it created a lot of trauma that I carried with me for many years. Looking back, my life could have taken a very different direction, but I adopted a mentality early on which helped shape the course of my life, and that is that nobody was coming to rescue me.
I understood this even as a young 13-year old girl. I would tell myself that what happened to me would not beat me, it would not ruin my life, and I decided back then that I would be happy despite my life not having been ideal. This is a mentality I've taken on well into adulthood, and one I credit for helping me get to where I am today.
Life can be hard, we can all agree on that. But we all have the choice to do, act and be who we want to. When we decide to stop waiting for someone else to save us, and we take full ownership of our lives, we become our own heroes. When we make choices that are aligned with the goals we want to achieve, and we commit to making choices that push us forward despite our circumstances or what has happened to us, we become our own heroes. When we commit to doing the necessary hard work, when we use our minds to empower us, and when we decide that where we have been is not where will end up, we become our own heroes.
Join me in this powerful and raw episode where I share my story in the hopes of showing you that you too can become your own hero.
