born to win

from childhood to adulthood, i've busted my butt to do my best; nothing has ever come easy. and for that, success has never tasted sweeter!

for too many years, i watched my dearest loved one's die a slow death, right before my eyes. i can't get it out of my head. because of that, everyday is a gift!

all my life, i somehow ended up on the hardest path. the easy way was never in sight. and for that, i am stronger!

i've always said, "there is nothing i can't do." i still believe that. and, i set out each and everyday to prove this, if only to myself!

someone once told me, you'll never amount to much. that was the day my life began. and for those hurtful words, i am thankful!

so this is where my journey has dropped me off for now. i have big dreams. and life, is just getting better and better everyday!

never quit and always believe in yourself!

  7. Awesome! Those are great words and you have definitely proved that person wrong.

    I kinda of came from the same place and I work hard every day to prove to people that I am not the person that they thought I would be. It drives my determination and will to continue on.

    Thanks for reminding me that we are not alone in our personal fights!

  21. Thank you that inspirational blog post. I was once told I wouldn't be able to do a marathon. That was 18 years ago and I have done 11 marathons since and 2 Ironmans. Sometimes it's the hurtful comments that motivate the most.
