Put your big girl panties on

“Everything that you will ever need in life is already inside of you.”

My mother told me this when I was twenty year’s old. It took me a full decade before I was able to grasp the meaning behind these words. I lived my life for a very long time waiting. Waiting for opportunity, waiting for prince charming, waiting for the right time and the right answers. Waiting on anything or anyone will get you absolutely nowhere fast!

If you want something you have to go out and get it. Don’t be afraid of not knowing the answers. Believe it or not the hardest part of the process is building up enough courage to go for the things you want. Research, investigate, ask questions, network and try. Nothing beats a failure but to try. Don’t be afraid to claim and walk proudly into your destiny. Put your big girl panties on and strut!!!
