Answers to the Big Questions
Oprah inspired me this morning. After hearing her ask the "big questions" I immediately wanted to write down my response. My excitement is through the roof as I feel this will help unlock more of my potential.
In this video, Oprah says to ask yourself "who am I?" And "what do I want?
Who am I?
I am one of a kind. My strength is insurmountable. I am so many things to different people. But the most important thing in this moment, is that I AM striving each day to become better than myself from yesterday. I AM courageous and go against the grain whenever possible. I AM kind more often than not. I AM beautiful inside and out. I AM worth everything I want in life.
I WILL SUCCEED IN MY GOALS, no matter how long it takes, or what obstacles I need to overcome to achieve them.
What do I want?
I want to push my limits and see how far I can go. I want to reach my absolute highest potential in every aspect of life. I want to inspire others to become the best version of themselves. I want to show kindness and patience at my weakest hour. Oprah says to "let excellence be your brand." That is exactly what I want to achieve. I deserve to be excellent, my son deserves it from me, and so does every person I encounter through life.
It's not about stature, it's about making this world a little bit better by bettering myself. If I share positivity, my hope is that it becomes catching, and a chain reaction of excellence resonates throughout parts of the world. Oprah is absolutely right, we all have the potential for enormous success. Whether it be in finance, physical health, mental health. Whatever success means to YOU, YOU have the potential to achieve that success.

If I didn't have these problems, how would my life be different?
Well this can only be an assumption. My assumptions are as follows: I wouldn't have the strength I have today from battling endometriosis. I wouldn't have the drive to overcome difficult situations. I wouldn't be as aware of issues that women like myself go through on a daily basis. I wouldn't be here today writing this in hopes to inspire myself and others. Life doesn't allow anyone to have a difficulty free journey. These are my challenges, I've decided to embrace them, love them, and use them to fuel my passion in life. My life wouldn't be mine if it were any different. I am after all one of a kind, and wouldn't trade myself for anyone else.
So in essence I am grateful for and am humbled by my challenges. How I react to them is my challenge, and I accept!
