"Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life." -J.K. Rowling
I've questioned whether I'm on the right path, whether my move was the right move. I've questioned the people around me and the opportunities presented. I've doubted myself. I've lost faith. I've broken up with God in search of someone who might treat me better. I've beaten myself up for not being exactly where I predicted I'd be by now and I'll compare myself to others because of it. I've been in questionable situations and I've gone down roads I knew not to take. I've traded my truest self for one replica. I've been lost.
Today I look at the woman in the mirror, realizing I don't celebrate her enough. In spite of all that I've been through, I was able to find myself again and here I am, smiling.
No matter where you are or what you've been through, you can rebuild. You can come out of your turmoil brand new and shiny with a testimony that will help inspire others. I encourage you to open up, share your story and your gifts with the world because you never know who's watching. You never know who's in need. You never know who's cheering you on.
