Guess what? We all have a story…some chapters we’d rather not read out loud…but they still make up our beautifully broken story of courage, strength, rebirth, and worthiness. Own your story and do not let anyone ever use it against you! Growth is the best personal revenge on anyone who is using the past to hold you back. Even if that person is you. WHAT? Yes, YOU may the reason you can’t move forward.
Rise above. Choose love. Grow. Go!
