Today I have been sitting here contemplating this post. I don't exactly know how I can piece my lifes story together so here i am, you know, just winging it.. I have always struggled with self-doubt growing up. Everytime an amazing opportunity came along, I would come up with these silly ass scenarios in my head and convince myself not to go along with it. These were opportunities that could have potentially changed my life.
For most of you that may not know me, I was born with muscular dystrophy which is a muscle disease that deteriorates the muscles in my body. I am not nor will I ever be able to do things that people can normally do. Luckily mine is not as severe, at least not yet anyway, and I am still walking. The older I get, the worse it gets and unfortunately there is just no cure yet. Although I struggle with this on a daily basis, I believe that one day, doctors will be able to figure out a cure. I have used my disability as an excuse to not do things. I have used my disability to make others feel bad.. Mainly myself. I have used my disability to make myself feel bad.. When I tell you guys that my son was a blessing from heaven, you better believe it. At the beginning of me starting motherhood, I could only think, "how am I going to raise a baby by myself?" It's hard.. I’m tired of having this negative mindset, I don't want my son to see his mother fall apart.
I was recently given another opportunity that I have decided to start. Luckily I am good friends with this girl who shared this opportunity with me and I’m so excited to see my life turn around!
I have witnessed her lose weight, I have witnessed her hair double its length, and I have witnessed this business make her the happiest that she's ever been.
I want to be able to do the same for my son and I. I want to get healthier. I want to be able to afford his Christmas this year. I want to be able to spend more time with him than just two days out of the week. I have bills, I am in debt from being in school, and I am also a single parent trying her best to make ends meet. I truly believe that this will help me tremendously. #itworks #bossmama #boss #boymom #boymomlife #itworkslife #bosslady
