This weekend, I was thinking a lot about how far I've come along my career path. The person I was at the start of my career almost wouldn't recognize the stronger, more resilient professional that I am becoming. I thought about those situations in my life (personal and professional alike) that, while in them, felt impossible to get through or to let go of. But each of those situations helped to clear a path forward to where I am today.
I realize that carrying around hurtful stuff might take time to heal, but you can start celebrating the life you get back. Think about how much energy you gave those moments in your life. I think about one instance in particular and now I laugh out loud about it. And back then, I could barely get out of the bed because it made me so sad. Find your faith, say RIP to the past, and put on your best outfit, because we have your future to celebrate.
