I've been called attention-seeking, a drama queen, "too open", annoying, a wannabe, a "social media whore", and just about every other similar insult you can think of.
But if my being open, raw, and truthful about my life and its experiences online helps even one person to cope with theirs, or inspires them to build a better life, then that makes the insults easier to bear.
I'm not looking for fans. I'm looking to share positivity and healing. I'm willing to talk about my mistakes, my failures, my ever-present anxiety and depression, and my crippling doubt just as much as my hard work, determination, blessings, and EARNED success.
You can't just have the good. You have to trudge through the mud, claw out of the quicksand, climb that mountain...all before you reach the top.
Thank you to beautiful soul who wrote me this. Lord knows I needed to read it.
Now: Build the life you want. Make your life extraordinary.
