Repost: From Within
If I stopped blogging today, I’ve done what I sought to do and more. Thank you all for allowing me to openly and honestly share my story with you. I hope my story continues to inspire and motivate you. Over the next three weeks, I’ll repost some of my favorites from the last three years. This is one of my bestie’s favorites. Enjoy!
When you’re in a dark, cold space trapped under 388 pounds light seems non-existent. I traveled many dark, foggy tunnels before I saw a glimpse of light. I had a negative spirit, negative attitude, and a negative outlook. In the depths of darkness, however, there was a nagging voice within, telling me: I deserved more. I was worthy. I could be better. After sitting still with myself and some serious soul searching I was able to hear that voice loud and clear. The voice within instructed me to stop wallowing in my pity, put my thoughts to action, and create the life I envisioned for myself. The voice within gave me hope, courage, and belief. The voice is the very reason I was able to see my way out of the dark, foggy tunnel. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. Today, I stand in the light.
