Life has a way of kicking us when we are down!
I entered adulthood as a young woman with all the optimism and naivety imaginable. I believed that life would treat me well, that everything would fall into place and that I would find my way as easy as following a yellow brick road.
I never account for the forks in the road, the choices that had to be made, the potholes and cracks along the way. I never expected the heartache, the betrayal, the misery.
I believed that everybody looks for someone who is happy and perfect. I never knew someone could fall in love with me because of who I am now, because of all the dents and scratches that have made me that bit tougher over the last 10 years.
If I’m honest I would rather be who I am now, so I may not look like a princess all shiny and new but I have mud under my nails from hitting rock bottom and climbing back up, I have scars and cuts and bruises from life. I regret nothing!
If I have to go through it all again to get to where I am now then I would.
I do not want to be that girl who gets everything she every wanted without having to do anything, I fight for what I believe in, I work my way up to where I wanna go and when faced with adversity and animosity I will come out swinging, I will be the girl with the bloody lip, limping her way into the next thing life has to throw at me.
I will be the girl who fights for my life and the people in it. I will love fiercely, i will protect those close to me and everything I want I will achieve my way!
