I was never one to be to excited about celebrities. They were great on screen or in concert and that’s it for me. I did not need to meet them. I didn’t care what they were doing with their life outside of the big screen.
My opinion of them has changed over time. There are so many videos being produced of their background stories. So many celebrities went through such terrible times to get where they are now. But their drive to move on, to succeed and change their lives is amazing and they deserve to be under the spot light.
Their pre-famous struggles inspire me so much and I have never really admitted that through my negativity toward the celebrity world. My background does not compare to most of them but it really shows me hope. It really shows me that if I stay true to me and keep moving forward I will find my fame. I will find what makes me an inspiration in helping others have more positive lives.
Sometimes I get so discouraged with my goals and right now I have gotten to comfortable in that mind set. I need to set aside my desire to help others all the time and help myself first. I’m not fully happy where I am in life right now and it is only me that can change that. I will not run back to the comfort of the past because the answers lie in the future. It’s time to try new things and move on. It’s time to motivate myself to inspire and help others even more but first it’s time to motivate myself. It’s time to drop the new negatives and move on. It’s time to ignore the naysayers and do what my heart says is right.
If I have learned anything from celebrities it’s this: My past does not decide my present. I can’t stop when it gets hard. I can’t hide when everyone is against me. I will fail and fall over and over but it is so important that I get up and try again.
I always tell my life path and goals story to everyone I meet. It is so benificial to do this. You never know what resources you can find or what advice people have for you while reaching your goals. By now I am sure 90% of you on here know I want to be a motivational speaker for children. I was telling my story to a coworker from the city on Friday and she randomly said “You are so in tune with all the kids, and you do so much volunteering for them as well. I think you should try to write children’s books with your positive messages through life.”
My mind just exploded right then. I am not the best writer but it’s a work in progress and the ideas are already in my head. So in my state of not being able to sleep I took an aptitude test evaluated by actual people to see what they say! Honestly if it’s meant to be it won’t matter. 15 years ago I didn’t know what a positive life style was, 6 years ago I didn’t now I would be starting a blog about positivism with over 350 posts. I was told I can’t write my own quotes but I have over 60 memes I made myself with my own quotes and photography. 5 years ago and again even more recent I had no idea of working on a cruise ship. It was near impossible but I did it…..TWICE! Almost 4 years ago I had no idea I would uproot my whole life to move to Florida…..thanks to my best friend here I am. I just went to the beach a couple days ago too! I Had no idea I would have the desire to be a motivational speaker but through my blog and job searching it became my main goal. I had no idea I would be working with children, I had no idea I had such an amazing connection with them. I had no idea I would be working to become a motivational speaker for children.
You get the idea? I tell everyone my story. I tell everyone my goals. You never know until you start talking and networking, what is going to happen with your life. Children’s books are just another avenue to go after. I will try anything because you never know till you try.
Your life can be full of wishing you tried that, full of could have been, or full of regret! Or it can be full of try everything. If you fail just move on. I never said I would be good at any of these things I have tried in my life but one failed oppertunity to the next I will find the right place for me. I believe everything happens for a reason and I also believe in the subtle signs our life gives us.
My life is rediculously hard right now. I try very hard to not complain about it. So much is going on in my life at work, in my future and mentally in my head. I need to sort it out. I fully believe my life is heading toward another big shift but I am not going to find it standing in a place where I am physically and mentally going nowhere.
If you see me I am quite calm and quiet now. I’m beat down, I am thinking and over thinking. I am tired. I need to be in a place where I matter. I need to be appreciated for who I really am. I need to be around more people that inspire me. I need to keep trying new things. There is a break through out there for me and I am not stopping till I find it.
