Today as I was on my way to get my hair cut I turned down an exit I haven't taken since I was a little girl. It was the same exit my mom took when my sisters and I were going to a women's shelter for abused women. It was a reminder to me to look up, look at all the things I have accomplished, all the dreams, that I have in my mind. It was a reminder as to why I hustle so hard, why I try my very best to accomplish a fraction of my dreams each and every day. We all came from somewhere, and yes I had a crazy childhood .. however everything that has happened to me I would never take as a negative. Everything that has happened to me is what was supposed to happen in my path and on my journey to my goal. Every person who has come into my life, who has left my life was for a reason. A lesson.
