Although we live in a time of uncertainty, we need to be certain that ONE DAY we will get out and get through. In the meantime, continue to work on your goals. Don't allow any situation to take your eyes off the goals, however, if you do need to adjust anything, adjust your plan. One of my favorite quotes: "A goal without a plan, is just a dream." It's time to make our dreams reality.
Today we are talking about one of her favorite topics and her personal mission: How to pursue your passion despite your current obstacles!
Q1: What obstacles have you had to face to get to where you are now?
A1: I went through 12 years of Domestic Violence and control. It was because of that situation, I lost myself. I went through a short battle of depression, lost clients, friends and didn’t want to be around any because of my shame and my hurt. I didn’t feel like I would be good enough and didn’t want to hear anyone remind me of how “stupid” I was to stay. My negative self-talk, keep me from moving in my purpose.
Q2; Do you ever regret your decisions in the past?
A2: At one time I did, but when I look back at my past, I realized it was that very thing, that built me to a strong person I am today.
Q3: What helps you move forward to want to help others that are going through a dark time in their life?
A3: Because I stayed silent and felt alone. I didn’t speak up because I was afraid of the ridicule, embarrassment, and shame because I allowed myself to go through abuse. Due to me being an “adult,” I thought it was a very “stupid” decision, not realizing, when fear takes over, you don’t see beyond your situation. I want to help those that are going through a dark time to understand, they are not alone and if they can truly see they have purpose, they can pursue their passion despite their obstacles.
Q4: What is one thing people can do to move forward and achieve their dreams?
A4: Learn how to Love who they are 1st through self-care and true soul searching.
