OKay- So I gotta admit, I need a kick in the butt.
Life’s gotten a bit bumpy and maaaan do I wanna wallow. Not huge wallowing.. just stay on the couch in my comfy pants with my dog and Roku remote wallowing. Now, even though I know that’s okay to do once in a while.. it’s not gonna do me any good right now.
Right now I need to keep my head high and eyes forward. For my mental health AND simply because I gotta work! Going through a divorce and moving can really wipe your bank account.
I happened to come across this story on NPR a couple weeks ago. After just a few minutes of hearing this story – I felt way better about my situation and realized just how lucky I am!
I can’t wait for you to feel the same:) It’s all thanks to Dr. Tererai Trent. Now I couldn’t find the audio file, but I did find an awesome clip from Ms. Oprah Winfrey on Terari (of course Oprah would find her!! )
This woman overcame intense adversity. I mean the F*ing odds were stacked against her.
- living in a 3rd world country
- abusive husband
- 6 kids
- no money
- no education
But this lady stood up and said “It is Achievable” She literally went from nothing – to becoming a Dr. and opening up schools in her native Zimbabwe so she could change the lives of countless girls and women. She wanted to end the ugly cycle she saw herself caught in.
So .. If you’re feeling like things are hard and you just can’t muster up the strength to do what you need to do- Watch this CLIP, listen to Dr. Tererai Trent and know that Anything “IS ACHIEVABLE”
