Today I find myself reflecting on the past and thinking about the future. I am so thankful for so many things, even the things that I thought I would never overcome. I see many women struggling with confidence. Many who feel there is no hope. I was there. I am a survivor of domestic violence. I have been unable to put food on the table for my child. I have been unable to do the simplest tasks such as showering and brushing my teeth, or just stepping out of bed.
It has been a long road to recovery, but I feel like I am finally getting somewhere. I can not thank those enough who have been there to show me that there is hope. I get up every day , not only for myself, but for my children. To see them smile and laugh. To watch them grow.
It was not until recently that I have been able to do something for myself and only myself. I step out of my comfort zone each and everyday, and have grown so much from doing just that. Some days I am still afraid to go out into the world, even to the grocery store. I do it, because my children need me, but if I don’t, I will never grow.
The biggest change I have made is becoming and Arbonne Independent Consultant. I can not express how much this has helped me grow as a person, and as a mother. I hear “no” or “I am not interested” every single day. I get it. I was that person. This company has opened my eyes to so much more than the products. The people I have met are beyond amazing. Some of the strongest women who have endured the hardest battles. They are mothers, daughters, teachers, lawyers and many more! There are also many men in the company making their own amazing journey. I am so thankful for this opportunity and can not wait to see who else I can share it with.
At the end of the day, the little things do matter, and the biggest steps you make can be the most important. Live your life and help others along the way. I believe as a human, this is the only way (for most of us) that will truly feed and satisfy our souls.
