I Persisted and You Can Too

Looking back over the past four years I realized so much has changed in the most positive and beautiful unfolding. However, if you would have asked me how I felt at the end of 2015, I would have told you I felt alone, unsupported, unworthy, unheard, helpless and even hopeless at times. It was those exact emotions that propelled 2016 to be my most vulnerable and transformational year of my life up until that point.

I had decided enough was enough and dedicated 2016 to being the year I started making better overall decisions in order to be a better person for myself first and foremost and others secondly. In my opinion, you have to help yourself first before helping others. That single choice made for a lot of highs and lows, yet through all of waves of change came more positive choices and emotions.

The changes came in the form of being more politically involved so I knew exactly what I stood for in order to make an educated vote. Moreover, I took on getting into shape and focusing more on my physical health. I also ended friendships and jobs that were toxic and not serving me. Lastly and most importantly, I started seeing a therapist.

A lot of decisions were made in 2016 that sparked my persistence of transformational growth; my favorite decision from that year was the one to become a life coach. I set it as my goal and less than three years later I achieved it. Reflecting back I have realized what persists exists and evolves.

As a life coach, I ask questions that propel deep thought and action. My question for you is, "what goal do you have that you want to take action on?" If you know the answer the next task I have for you is to ponder, "what's holding you back from making that goal a reality?" If you have a goal, don't give up persist. Through persistence that goal will unfold into something so beautiful that's beyond your wildest dreams.
