Lately, I’ve received some criticism from some who don’t understand my choices. This has been hard because I appreciate these people in my life and believe they mean well. However, my choices have brought me to the success I am today. I’ve yet to validate any fears of failure. My choices result in the great respect I have built in my network and community. I attribute the choices I’ve made to my independence and personal growth. For 30 years, I’ve struggled with the opinions of those who do not “believe” in the way I want to live my life. Out of self respect, I’ve discovered the need to avoid irrelevant feedback and harness constructive energy towards my pursuits.
I am 100% happy with where my choices have lead me today and 100% ready to continue to trust myself and my methods. I am also 100% ready to let go of the internal need I have felt for three decades to seek the opinions of “authority figures.” More than ever, I feel the authority within, ready to live my life how I see fit. Ready to stop comparing my life to the typical American Dream. I don't want that dream. I want my dream. I am accountable for me.
I’ve never been able to decide on one place I could see myself living.
Two of our greatest gifts are choice and autonomy. Happy birthday to me. :)
