Back in High School I decided to take up Drama. Honestly, I thought it would be a breeze. Hardly any homework and all my friends to mess around with? Yes, please.
Little did I know what I was getting myself into. My teacher slapped us with our first assignment — a monologue.
Speak in front of my class?
All eyes on me?
Act out a script solo?
I went into shut down mode. I was literally sick, stressed, and anxiety ridden over the whole thing.
I know, so dramatic.
It actually got so bad that I would skip class and even opted to get an F. I would rather flunk than get up in front of my peers.
Now, fast forward to today.
I’m not the same girl I was back in High School. To be honest, I feel as though I have grown the most over these last few years. Every day I grow into a better version of myself.
I have gained confidence.
Found my purpose.
Found my passion.
— and along the way I have found that I actually thrive on stage. Who would have thought? 🤷🏼♀️
Speaking up on stage at our national convention, in front of thousands, is a moment I will never forget. To have the ability to encourage and inspire even just one person in that room was beyond anything I could’ve hoped for.
So, why do I tell you this story?
Because I want to remind you that your past does not predict your future. Don’t let it hold you back from becoming the person that you are truly meant to be! You have so much to offer, you just have to be willing to give it.
I might not know much, but what I do know is that a great future does not require a great past.
Let this story be your reminder that you’re so much more than who the world tells you to be. ✨ The Lord works in unimaginable ways. For me, He used this business. He used the moments of growth and the friends that have come alongside me to remind me that I am able to make a difference…. and you can too.
Don’t ever forget it. You got this! 👊🏼
