In a few hours I'll lay down my shield. Ive taken hits and punches, but every single time I got right back up. Many sacrifices took me here and although they were hard I don't regret them. Before I lay it down to rest and grow in my career, ill wear it one more time. To all my fellow friends thank you and those who left thank you as well. Graduates of 2019! Assemble!!! #masterdegree🎓 #masters2019#captainamerica#laydownyourshield#newbeginnings#mercycollege

This year took an unexpected turn for me earlier, which to begin with felt like the biggest kick in the guts, ever; I had to take the time to process that situation to realise that I AM worthy and it was nothing I had done wrong; and when I pulled the situation apart further I realised I was stagnant, under-stimulated and bored, definitely not being challenged to my fullest potential in that environment. I NEEDED that situation to happen to a) stand up for myself and set boundaries, and to b) venture outside my comfort zone to find what I was lacking and craving.
There are a few very special people who when I reached out, responded; they responded when I was in my “I’m not good enough” headspace, and encouraged me and saw my potential. Also around the time, I received my Bootybarre results, of 100%. It took time, but with all of this evidence around me, I realised ‘oh, maybe I am good at what I do?’ Duh. The penny dropped. I didn’t need to change my career, I needed to step (or leap) outside my comfort zone and accept an offer that still doesn’t feel real. I’ve been so anxious, nervous and stressed, worried about people thinking I’m ‘lazy’ as I have not taken on more work...but there is a legitimate reason behind all of this...and it has been a major life decision.
I can not describe what I am feeling, as they are mixed. But I know I am extremely excited, and a lil’ scared, but I know that if I have come through what I have, I can do anything; it’s time to really work toward those aspirations, dreams and goals. I’m so so lucky to have such a great network of people who are encouraging and helping me along my way...✨♥️🔥
