I can’t even believe what the last few weeks have brought. It still seems like I’m dreaming.
A few years ago I had this overwhelming feeling of needing to make a difference. I had just volunteered my time doing haircuts at a homeless project for the third time. I remember getting in my car after and just crying.
I made a video that day, talking about what I had just done and what I was feeling. And let me tell you, the way I felt was something I had never felt before. I remember just being so thankful for what I had- may not have been much- but I was not homeless.
At the end of that video, I had said “Remember to be kind to others around you. You don’t know what people are going through.” Those words BE KIND stuck with me.
I have gone through my own storms since then. After havin Mia, I went through a year of struggling with depression. I’ve never felt so low and in darkness before. Thankfully, God was on my side and got me through.
After that, I was fired from my job. At the time it seemed like the worst thing possible. My soul was crushed and I wasn’t sure where to go from there. I had been praying for negative people to be taken out of my life. Those toxic people needed to go and being fired was how it needed to happen. My life was taking a turn, for the better.
My blog was born after my soul was able to breathe for a few months. My blog was going to be my outlet to let others in on my journey of self improvement. I’ve been able to be real and tell you about my struggles and high points.
Over the course of four years I’ve found my tribe. The people that lift me up when I’m down. They help me in times of need and support me with he good. I wouldn’t be where I am without my tribe. I highly suggest you find a tribe. Get rid of the negativity in your life- even if it’s hard to do. You’ll be better off. I promise.
This be kind movement started last February when I found the t-shirt on Etsy. I ordered right away and took a chance by emailing the owner my ideas and visions.
Thankfully, they took a chance on me and have helped me spread the word. Together we have reached people in different states and have made a massive wave.
I was able to speak to our youth group last night and tell them about my journey and vision. I do think my purpose is to help others and this is God telling me to keep going.
The youth of this world are the ones to make the biggest difference. They will be the ones to change the world.
I challene you all to join me in this movement. To wear your shirts with pride and to always be kind to others.
