Good morning beautiful humans, happy Wednesday! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me or evening depending on where you live in this great big world. Welcome to Life with Lane; my life through words, pictures, and food, Come on in………..
I’ve decided to bring back Women I admire Wednesday. Well, this Wednesday I am highlighting myself, lol! I don’t mean to sound like a narcissist because I’m not, but I am my biggest fan! I’m very proud of the woman I’ve become and as time goes on, I’d like to think I’m getting better. My life isn’t where I’d like for it to be at my age but in time it will be. This year isn’t exactly going great, as a matter of fact, I’m going to write a blog about how this year has be going, lol!
Let’s talk about why I choose myself as the woman I admire on this fine Wednesday! Life has thrown me so many obstacles and I could’ve easily given up, but I’m still standing. Should I talk about those obstacles? Perhaps in another post. I’m 41 years old and I’d like to think physically I’m holding up pretty well. My face doesn’t look like that of a 41-year-old, I’ll let you guys be the judge
When I was going through college for 6 years straight I may add, I was going through a divorce and I still managed to graduate with honors. No, I wasn’t going through a divorce for 6 years, that didn’t happen until the last 2 years of college. It was very stressful but I didn’t drop out. I kept my head held high and I remained focused on the end goal. My ex husband pretty much abandoned me, I lost my job, I was losing weight, but I stayed in school. I got my degree! It meant something to me.
People often don’t think I use my degree, but I feel even though technically I don’t have a job in the management field I use my degree every day! Life is hard and you have to be able to manage things, time, money, thoughts, travel, etc. My degree plays a big part in my everyday life.
I suffer from migraines, like horrific migraines, and for a while they were unbearable. My doctor couldn’t figure out why I was having them. It was a nightmare and to be honest, somedays I felt like death would’ve been kind to me. However, I got up, went to work, I was a soldier. Even when I was home when my mother wasn’t well, I had a migraine the entire time. I felt like my head was going to explode. I literally wanted to die but I didn’t tell anyone. I didn’t want my mother, my family to have anything else to worry about.
So, yes, I admire myself because no matter what I have going on, I always do what it takes! I don’t really complain much, I don’t depend on others or ask for much, I hustle and get shit done! I don’t have a lazy bone in my body. I would say I’m a bad bitch. But I like the term, Educated/Determined/Ambitious/Bitch. In essence in essence that is a BAD BITCH, lol! I’m a woman to admire. I’m a work in progress but I’m going in the right direction
