so you made it...
Firstly, I want to take the time out to thank everyone who is visiting my blog to read my first post. If you had the chance to read my bio you'll find that aside from modeling I am a student of psychology and have a passion for helping others by either simply sharing my energy or life's journey with others. (Know that I don't have a problem getting on the nitty gritty topics though. Life isn't always peaches and cream).
Growing up isn’t easy. From the time you’re conceived, your growth and development are heavily influenced by other people. Individuals such as your parents, relatives, and friends all play a major role when you're forming your identity. The combined impact of your personal experiences and your environment help you learn how to deal with trauma, stressors, and the way you perceive the world around you. I look forward to discussing such topics in my future blogs, not only to inspire, but to show what can be done through perseverance.
I personally understand that it can be challenging being a product of your environment. Because, especially at an early age, we are not always in control of what happens to us. However, it is imperative to learn how to use your individual qualities and skill set to rise above negative influences. When we reach “adulthood,” we gain a little more freedom in regards to controlling our destinies. We have more choices to make, but the right choices can put us in the position for greater opportunity. I say this to say that sometimes we are not in control of what happens in our life but once we gain the freedom in regards to controlling our destinies. We have more choices to make, but the right choices can put us in the position for greater opportunity.
I grew up poor in an inner-city community (another topic I will elaborate on later......) and statistics aren't saying the most positive things about those of us who have had a rough, or traumatic, childhood.
Littler side note or whatever: I may use the terms rough and traumatic interchangeably.
Luckily, our brains maintain the ability to change far into our aging process, basically up until the day we die, so in turn we maintain the ability control over our futures.
You already know though, I get it. SO, what's next right?
Well I'm really just here to say that if you've ever felt discouraged, hopeless, alone, or experienced a tragedy, perhaps you're not alone. Not only are you not alone, but you can take care of your life. Intuition, is something I like to think of as a clairvoyant existence within everyone. It is a very real thing and chances are you already know what to do. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO REDIRECT YOUR LIFE.
I'll leave you with that. I'll be back with the juice, later.
