Grateful

I’m currently sat in a coffee shop writing this post. I’m sat in the same spot I was in nearly 10 years ago. I remember because I was struggling with a lot of things back then. It got too much and I decided to write a note on my iPhone about all the things I wanted to do but couldn’t.

I now sit in the same spot, drinking my coffee and writing my to-do list. I’m a changed person from that 21 year old who felt she was at a bit of a crossroads. I didn’t know what I wanted. I’d just graduated with a degree but I wasn’t sure if that was my calling. I wanted to be a doctor but I didn’t know if I could do it or afford it. I had the wrong people in my life which made things more difficult.

I’m now 31 and I wish I could tell 21 year old me not to worry! We made it even though we fell down a 100 times. You got the career you wanted, you got the life you dreamed of. Nothing is easy and life is rarely perfect but perfection is not how many things you can tick off from your to-do/bucket list but it’s the little things in life like spending time with your family and friends. Trying to maintain and build those relationships whom without you wouldn’t have been in the place you are right now.

You see, it doesn’t take just YOU to reach your goals, it’s takes a TEAM. A whole team of human beings who support you – financially, emotionally and mentally! Sometimes your team members aren’t here for the full ride and that’s okay as it’s your story and you’re the boss so you can take people off and bring in others who you know will take you to the finish line!

So believe in yourself and let others help you achieve your full potential .

It all works out in the end. Promise!
