I Finally Woke Up

I have always had big dreams for myself but I was insecure and scared to pursue them. I made excuses on failing along the way without even trying. The thought of stepping out of my comfort zone was so nerve wracking that I only parked my dreams at the back of my head. I worked hard and hoped that my selected path would lead me to where I wanted.

Unfortunately, I was late by a year and a half in to realizing that I should eagerly and actively pursue my dreams, way beyond what I am achieving now. Alternative plans must always be constantly triggered, ready to activate like a push button. Tragic turn of events led me to hit rock bottom recently, making me realize reality. Bruised and broken, I woke up to the reality that I am the only one who can forge my destiny.

I gave myself a day or two to wallow in sadness then I took the necessary steps to activate my alternative plans. In the midst of these stressful days, I am able to find peace and serenity knowing there is hope once again. I am thankful for my support system who tirelessly listen to me. I am forever grateful to them.
