I apologize for missing yesterday but it was my birthday! So go ahead and wish me a happy birthday in the comments. I would absolutely love it.
Today I want to tell you that I do not know your story.
I do not know your background. Where you started and where you are is yours to own.
No matter where you started. No matter how long it took you to get there. No matter how hard it was to get where you are. You got here. You did it.
Your circumstances might affect your outcome but they do not define it.
Unfortunately it is hard to give you good ways to combat this mental hurdle that our circumstances will be our outcome because of the variability of human life.
But I want this to be a reminder that there are options. There are people that are willing to be on your team and help.
For a birthday present to me, leave me some of your resources and words of wisdom on how you make sure that your circumstance is not your downfall.
