Overcoming Obstacles: Guest Post

This post is about  overcoming obstacles because to me this Working Woman has overcome a lot. I am so happy to be her best friend and have her in my life but more so, I want you to be inspired by her story and how she's working hard everyday to be the best version of herself. To be a GIRLBOSS is not easy but how different her life is from a year ago .. is truly a story to tell. 

My list of goals last year consisted of getting a great stable job, buying my own car, taking Shaila on vacation and officially moving out on my own and I did it! As of last month I put the last check on my list, to most it's a simple list but to me it's all I wanted. To be honest the me two years ago was completely lost, I had no idea where my life was going but I knew I needed to do something especially because of Shaila. She was the only reason why I fought so hard. I slowly started to find myself, my self-confidence and especially my ambition to become a better person and a stronger mother. It was never easy, no one knows I probably cried myself to sleep more than I should of because of how scared I was of doing it alone but as soon as I decided to keep trying it all just became so clear. I got tunnel vision towards my goals nothing mattered but my dreams and the life I wanted for my baby. I'm happy to say that with the help of my some of my family, my best friends encouragement and my daughter I managed to put checks on my entire list in one year. I hope my story can inspire other women, there's  nothing better than a hard working woman that independently can care and provide for her kids even when she herself doesn't believe she can do . You will be surprised what you can do with just a simple check list and a few simple goals.

  • Make a List
  • Every time you reach a goal cross it off. ( feels amazing )
  • Have Tunnel Vision (only see the finish line)
  • Believe in yourself 
  • Never give up
