I told you all that I had been going through some things lately. Moreover, I decided not to let it get me down and create an action plan to prosper. In some of my earlier posts, I have referred to myself as the girl from the Detroit hood. After seeing this quote, I realized this is exactly what I was trying to communicate with that line. My time in that environment shaped me, taught me and prepared me for the work I would have to put forward not to end up in those places. When the kid was born I knew I had to do better not only for me but so he wouldn’t know the life I lived personally.
In essence, you’re more than the environment you grew up in or anything that could be view as a hindrence or advantage. You are the collective product of the choice and decisions you’ve made. I choose to win, to get over these hurdles and learn from these trying times. Things aren’t how we want to be all the time but you can transform any situation. Take responsibility for your destiny and all the outcome that come before its fulfilled. 🙂
