I never knew what it felt like to live in a world with no purpose to my life. I mean at least I think I figured it out now but for a while it seemed like I was just another human being living in this obscure world. I was just going through the motions of life. It is crazy to think the events that deter you away from feeling that sense of “I made it,” can control your mind and have adverse effects like having negative thoughts run through your subconscious and make you say or do things that you may regret later. I am one to confess that I let my emotions ruin the very thought of living in a positive frame mind on a daily basis, well at least I use to be one of those people. I believe that if I sat and wrote this story to you all that I would be lying to say I am the perfect wife, sister or friend. But I assure you that I will be 100% honest with you and say I am not perfect but I choose to work hard to ensure that I am the best version of myself in every thing that requires me to be.
If you have ever heard this phrase before do me a favour and try this one day.
“Take a look in the mirror and tell me what do you see?”
Go Ahead Try It….
I envision a young girl standing in her bathroom full of emotions that only she would understand. A young girl that has had so much on her mind but is afraid to express it to anyone because she is scared of what people may think. But as I stand behind her invisible like she can’t see me; I see a young girl who is strong. She has overcome things in her life that nobody else knows and some may never know. Do you understand what it means now? The concept of “take a look in the mirror?” It is all about perspective. Mirrors portray anything that you want it too for example; pulling a funny face, sad face, grumpy face or even a smile… But the main image it portrays with features and all may never change because it is the same person that is looking back at you. As I watch behind the young girl in the mirror, it seems like she is interested to find what makes her get up in the morning and say “Today is going to be a great day!” Where is she? What is stopping her from finding her purpose in life? Even better what could possibly be stopping you from finding this so called purpose you want in your life?
Then I realised after all these years the girl who was standing there was me. A young girl who knew nothing about living with a purpose, but a girl who was searching for something that would ignite her inner spirit. It had been years and years of ups and downs but it took those significant events in her life to drive me to find that exact calling. That girl in the mirror at times wanted to give up. She let her emotions drive her mind into places where not even herself could control. But she knew that there was something out there for her to find and that something was right there. Her reflection. You. Your reflection. It was me. Kiara it is you. The person she saw looking back was the woman that now inspires young adults to continue living a life of positivity, love, happiness, joy, peace and most of all with an open heart to express to the people that love her the most.
It wasn’t easy but I had to stay encouraged.
Your life will take 360 degree turns in every direction whether you are ready or not. I was just along for the ride it seemed. The ride to live life because I just wanted to live it. But in order for me to control what I can control and better that girl who was looking back at me was to create the reality she wanted via the gifts she had. Yes I never knew that I could actually pick up a book and sit there for more than 5 minutes reading it. Sounds silly but I thought it was boring. In fact, I never knew I could even write a quality essay but I knew that at some point I was going to make a difference in somebody’s life whether I planned to or not. It all started right here. Right now. In my reality. My purpose was to help the people that looked at themselves like I did in my darkest times and ensure that they are not alone. I am here to inspire young adults, young women, students and even young married couples that anything is possible.
So I guess what’s next…
I hate not knowing how exactly my life will be 5, 10 even 20 years from now but I know that in order to live the life I want to live it means living it with full of purpose and no regrets. There goes a saying, “In my life, I’ve lived, I’ve loved, I’ve lost, I’ve missed, I’ve hurt, I’ve trusted, I’ve made mistakes, but most of all I’ve learned,” this is so true. We all learn from mistakes, we all learn from things in our past but most of all that image you see in the mirror reflecting back at you is you… make it better than it was yesterday and never take life for granted.
“Don’t lose your present to your past.”
