I'm sure you've heard of the phrase (or have heard it come out of someone's mouth before): "I'm a lover, not a fighter." Well, I used to be just that - or at least I thought I was. I have come to realize that I don't think I've ever really been much of lover. I've always been a fighter.
It took me a while to come to terms with this frame of mind. I have always classified myself as a lover aka someone.who.lets.life.pass.them.by, but then I realized that for most of my life, everything I have, I have always fought to earn it. Even in my darkest periods of life, I was fighting. I may have thought I was just letting life slip through and pass me by, but it was still a struggle. I was STILL struggling to make it. I'm not a lover and never will be. Life isn't fair. You have to dig deep and actively go after what you want. So, fight!
Now, I don't mean to go out and get into fights. Come on, use common sense. Don't sit back and let the things that you want just slip out of your fingers. Even if I can't have what I want right away, I don't give up on it. Oh believe me, if I want something and I know I can get it - I WILL get it.
I have conversations with many people about how they can't seem to do this or that, for whatever excuses they come up with. Well, screw the excuses. I decided earlier this year to take charge and change the things in my life. I started with losing the excess baby weight, then I completed my last semester for my Bachelor's degree a couple of weeks ago and now I'm tackling these blogs and my professional profiles/resumes to land some contracts. I was able to get there before. I can do it again, except this time it's a different story all around.
Develop your mind and train yourself to be strong. Keep up your motivation. It's hard, but anything worth having will NOT come easy. Only you control whether your dreams become a reality. So, what are you going to do? Are you going to sit back and let life pass you by?
I am not going down without a "fight" and you better believe I'm coming fully prepared. As my fortune cookie said, "Chance favors the prepared mind." I had Chinese tonight from this place around the corner. It was absolute perfect timing because I had already began writing this post. I have been focused on preparing for the best years to come. ;-)
I tried to get my point across about being the person who has always fought and will continure to fight for what they want in life. Hope it worked and I don't sound too much like a fruitcake!! :-)
Thanks for reading!
