Imagine yourself living your life on your own terms rather than living the agenda someone else set for you.
I am here to tell you that you can! You can move beyond your situation and your circumstances and write your own story. And you know the great thing about you writing your story rather than settling for someone else’s story? The story can end the way you want it to.
Once upon a time in my life, I experienced what it was like to live with a family not my own. That is the story of a foster child. There was also a time in my life when I was abused emotionally and physically. But you know what? That’s not how my story ends.
What I realize is even though these are facts about my life, they are not my life’s story. One chapter doesn’t make the whole story. When I came to understand this, I picked up my pen and kept writing. I decided that the conflicts of my life would be commas, not periods. I value the lessons life is teaching me, even the hard ones. These lessons and life experiences have been stepping stones into the future Tonya you see today: An owner of 3 businesses, doing it afraid with a smile on my face!
