As I am getting older I am trying to shift my perspective of loss. I always say everything happens for a reason but am I really living out that statement? I know I am not alone with being hyper focused on the mistakes, the failures and the negative situations that have happened in my life. I want to shift my L’s (my losses) and look at the lessons I learned, the journey I had, and the things I gained in the process. I know I get frustrated with these “losses” that contribute to my overall character development but at the end of the day it is shaping me into the person I need to become. So I challenge you to be aware of when you are super down on yourself. Try to stop and be thankful for what you have learned in the process. I know it’s hard af but Rome or Beyonce wasn’t built in a day.
