Do you feel like you’re struggling to find yourself? Are you unsure of your path in life & where you’re supposed to be going? I felt this way for most of my life friends.
I stumbled across a wonderful quote on Pinterest that I wanted to share with you all. “We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us” – Joseph Campbell. This particular quote truly hit home with me because of what I have been through the past five years of my life. I had no idea who I was because of many different experiences I went through.
I will make a very long story short because most of you probably have watched my You Tube video or read my story. I was overweight most of my life, was struggling emotionally, had no self confidence, & I didn’t respect myself or anyone else. I got married and divorced by the time I was just 20 years old. After that I was in a long distance relationship for a few years & that ended badly.
During all these bad breakups in my college days, I decided I had to make a huge change & get healthier. I transformed that aspect of my life in just a few short years & lost 60 lbs. I also quit smoking (I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day) & stopped partying. That process & my breakups were extremely hard on me, but those struggles lead me to open up my eyes to letting go of what I thought I was supposed to do with my life. I thought I knew who I was & where I was supposed to go, but God had something else in store for me.
When I graduated college with my Bachelor’s in Business Administration I was certain I was supposed to work in the marketing field. God had other plans for me because that didn’t work out. I ended up in education working at a university in Georgia & even got my Master’s in Higher Education. I worked there for almost four years, but then God really showed me His path was much different than where I thought I was supposed to go.
As most of you know, I quit my full-time job to pursue my passion as a Beachbody Coach. If you would’ve asked me just a few months ago if I would’ve ever imagined that I would be able to quit my full-time job, double my income, & work only 20 hours a week I would’ve laughed in your face. But, I know my God & Savior has huge plans for my life because I can already see them coming into fruition. I’m just so blessed that I can do it for Him & to serve His kingdom!
I have grown so much closer to God & He has seriously transformed every aspect of my life this year. 2012 has been the best year yet for me because I had faith in Him & trusted what His will is for my life. I’m not sure yet where the rest of my life will lead me, but I’m not going to stress it. I’m going to let go of what I thought I was supposed to do and give it to Him!
I wanted to share this with you to let you know that we all struggle sometimes. Heck you guys half of my life was a struggle in more than one way! If you’re hurting in some way, I’m here for you & so is God. Just keep your faith & stay strong because amazing things are to come!
