Given recent issues that have come to light, I have been reminded of a song that has a lyric that applies to me in so many ways and its something that always comes back to me.
"If you say that I am weak, then show me the proof, because I still exist inspite of you." Aaron Lewis, Stain'd
No matter what people try and throw at me, I will ALWAYS get back up, brush it off and keep walking, keep going because you know something, I am better than what anyone else has painted me as. I am a strong person who has fought hard enough to stay where I am today and you know something, I will keep fighting and I will keep getting stronger and more confident, not because anyone said I couldn't, but because I believe I can. Because I have faith in myself and I know the people who are backing me have the utmost faith and respect for me.
These people know the REAL me. The person who has come through hell and high water to get where I am today and these people have been my rock. The people whose shoulders I have cried on and asked for help and advice. People who have reminded me that even though the road is bumpy, its one worth travelling because the outcome is important to me. I feel so blessed to have these people in my life and I will never be able to truly pay them back for their kindness, and sometimes the slap round the chops to get me to pull myself together!
I am NOT perfect by any means, but I am able to rise above my past and the people who hurt me and walk forwards with my head high and a smile on my face, because I accept my own wrongs and I do not blame others for my mistakes. I do things, even when I don't particularly want to. I have often said that I am not perfect, I am human. I am flawed by design just like everyone else, but what makes me who I am is the strength to say enough is enough and walk away from the people who hurt me and the past.
I am honoured to have the people I have in my life. And I am also honoured that you, the reader, has taken the time to read and understand my plight. I do get your emails and they do make me so happy because I know that out there my message has reached and helped someone. Thank you... so much for everything and as I continue to grow and flourish, this blog will continue to stand as testament to how my life is progressing. As the name says, this is my journey. Every step of the way.
