“Take one day at a time” (his handwriting)
The words my father has always told me from the time I was little...to this very day still. He always makes sure to remind me that tomorrow isn’t promised, worrying about the future does not help the now, and that focusing on the present is all I can do at the moment. He has taught me from a young age that nothing gets easier and always said, “just wait till you get older. It’s tough out there.” & man, he wasn’t joking. But I’m forever grateful to have such an incredible man in my corner at all times and I’m proud to be his daughter.
“Fall down seven, stand up eight”
Everyone has their own story. Only a few have heard mine but to keep it simple, I have been through hell and back, more than once. Childhood to adulthood. A lot of days were left praying. Asking what in the world is He getting me ready for by having me face all these struggles, bc I just needed a break.
But I am here today, because every time I fell down or got knocked down, I stood back up. I had faith. I believed in Him. I stood back up as a stronger, wiser, more determined woman, ready to climb the mountains that I was once carrying.... you know what? Every time I did. Why? Bc the best views come after the hardest climbs and I am proud to have never settled at rock bottom. I am proud of the woman I’ve become today due my struggles. I am proud to be standing tall ️
