Step forward

There’s always a defining moment in your life. 

You’re either going to take action or let life pass you by; because, you wouldn’t take the steps necessary out of fear.

You see there’s a time in life where you think you have everything figured out but then there’s a sudden turn that can change the whole landscape of your life and everything around you.

I had that happen to me when my father passed away in 2014.

A grieving mother, a family i haven’t seen in years moved in, and a whole new dynamic of uncertainty, clouding my mind…

The hardest thing that I ever had to do was go on that stage during my father’s funeral and speak, with nothing prepared to say. 

During that moment in time, I realized that I wasn’t doing it for me. I was doing it to honor my father and his legacy. By the end of my speech, there were so many people that admired what I was doing to honor my father. 

I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I didnt take a step forward. And so can you!

You see it’s amazing how any individual can do extraordinary things through adversity when they’re doing it for something bigger than themselves. 

That’s the ultimate step forward.
