The fact that I am who I am where I am and what I am is a testament to all the achievements I have had in my 26 years of living. Yes it starts with the day I was born, but it’s also so much more, its every day I have woken up, survived and seen the end of. I have had days where I have wanted to give up, times I wanted to turn back and other occasions all I’ve wanted to do was run and hide. I have faced situations I didn’t feel I was equipped to handle, dealt with them and moved on a stronger person. There have been moments where I didn’t think I was strong enough to get through but I dug deep, turned to my parent’s strength and teachings and stayed on my feet and came out smiling.
There have been obstacles I should not have had to get over but yet I did and I’m all the stronger for it. Without spilling my guts in this blog, these are all achievements that cannot be counted or measured, but I have ‘survived’ 26 years of life and I’m a better person for each and every achievement, trial and celebration I have witnessed.
Don’t get me wrong, not all of my life has been hard, hurtful and scary! I have had some wonderful moments that have inspired me, taught me some valuable lessons, made me stronger and shown me the beauty of life. I count myself very lucky to have experienced all that I have.
I’m also exceptionally proud of where I am today and for all I have learnt, received and given. Without needing to list my top 200 achievements I know I have achieved so much more…and here’s to the future!
