Dear everyone, your current position is not permanent! You can go higher!
This weekend I was rehearsing lines with my best friend. She was having a hard time remembering a particular line, so she said:
"I can't do this! You don't get nervous in front of other people like I do."
I then said to her, "I used to."
While explaining my past fears to her, I had a chance to reflect on how much my life has changed in less than six months. I saw that my facts were not final.
If someone had approached me in March of 2015 and told me that I was about to step into my future and live my dreams, I wouldn't have believed them. My mind was conditioned to hoping for things and doubting myself. After accepting a shy persona, I was convinced that I wasn't capable of living my dreams.
However, what is fact is not final. Within six months, sixteen years worth of wasted hope grew into completed promises, answered prayers, and the desires of my heart placed into the palms of my hands. The quiet girl who was afraid to sit next to people in class and make eye contact now writes for a magazine. She has performed in two plays and sang in front of a crowd. I'm gaining confidence in the process and I'm blessed with the opportunity to share and empower others with my testimony.
You can advance from where you are now! Have faith and give yourself a chance. Write your hopes on paper and believe that they will happen. Work toward them with a relentless dedication. Despite what it may look like you are already equipped with everything you need to be incredible.
Sending out positive vibes, I challenge you to give your future a chance. Advance from your current position! Speak confidence and keep a "can do" attitude. Stay beautiful and have a blessed week because what's fact is not final.
