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.
