like a boss

“After a while I looked in the mirror and realized…wow after all those hurts, scars, and bruises, after all of those trials, I really made it through. I did it. I survived that which was supposed to kill me. So I straightened my crown…and walked away like a boss.”

I don’t even have words that can express how much that quote got to me. It made me reflect on how many things I have gone through in my life to get where I am today.  All the trials and bumps and bruises, a difficult first marriage and a painful divorce, years as a single mom working my guts out so I could support my two kids, and trying and failing and trying and failing and trying yet again as I worked at building a successful company. I went through physical trials, emotional trials, and spiritual trials that felt like more than I could take. For all the “ups” that I have in my life today, there were first countless downs that I had to go through to get where I am today. So when I read that quote it made my heart replay all those hard things I have been through and it felt almost more than I could bear…but then I realized it…I did it. I survived all of the horrible things I went through, and I okay…I’m better than okay…so if you’ll excuse me I need to go straighten my crown…LIKE A BOSS!

No matter what hard things you have going on in your life right now, have confidence and faith, because you are going to get through them…LIKE A BOSS!
