Here is the thing... THAT was my VICTIM story. It was all the ways I justified inaction and giving up before I ever really got started... and you know, it awarded me lots of sympathy from those who heard it, and that felt good.
At the end of the day though, I had to face the reality that I was about to hand down the same childhood I had to my newly born daughter. I had to stomach the thought of telling HER that victim story as my excuse as to why I couldn't be present for her important life events, why I couldn't afford to fund her dreams, and why I had never pursued my own.
One night I looked down at my daughter, who was about 12 months old at the time, who had quite literally FOUGHT for her LIFE from the moment she was born... and I decided to begin to FIGHT for my own.
I asked God to USE the struggles of my life for a greater purpose. To turn my TRIALS into TRIUMPHS that would honor Him & help others believe in what was possible through Him... and I told Him that I was willing to do whatever He asked of me, even if it didn't make any sense at the time.
I kid you not, my life has never been the same.
My circumstances didn't change overnight, but my mindset about them DID. I became a warrior and was willing to do whatever it took to give my family the life they deserved... the life you likely see me living today and maybe even think, "Must be nice."
The journey between those two stories was filled with FAVOR, there is no doubt. You take Jesus out of my story and there is NO WAY I end up here... but it was also filled with sleepless nights, sweat-equity, trials that I decided to grow through and an enormous amount of short-term sacrifice.
