Happy International Women’s Day to every woman out there in the world! I am a young lady still learning about life and what it takes to be successful. I try my best to work harder than anyone else, male or female. It is not easy for anyone to go through the rough obstacles life provides. Women must educate themselves and help other women to succeed. We should not be putting other women down by bashing names at one another such as, “bitch,” or “slut,” it just makes it easier for men to say that to us. Self-love is key to becoming a successful person. So as a woman we should provide other women with confidence and love, not hate. We also should not be afraid to be strong and determined in our careers. We need to become leaders and role models for the girls in the next generation to come. Women are the future, there is nothing we cannot do.

It is 1am and I can’t sleep. I have not been blogging as much as I should be. I have provide myself with nothing but excuses, such as my knee to not blog. Which overall doesn’t really make sense. I also have been trying to get back on track with my school work because I missed a lot of classes due to my surgery. It has not been easy either, but I am grateful that a lot of my professors have been very helpful. Either way, excuses, excuses. What I have been thinking about mainly this past month is my future. Exactly where am I going to transfer too, and if I will be able to still play organized basketball for a school. I really really believe in myself that I will come back from this injury strong but I still have a long way to go and somedays are not as easy as others. So we will see what the future holds. 

I have been feeling very blessed to just be alive and being able to feel the struggle of trying to be successful. It is a remarkable feeling, but I know reaching my goals is even going to feel better . The struggle is the beauty of success and what one must go through to reach certain goals. We would not know what success is without the struggle. So I hope whoever is reading this will realize how good life is and how lucky we all are to be alive. Every morning when the sunrises, you open your eyes, and take in that deep breath is a good day.
