Today is a very special post where i'm partnering with T3 and their #powerwithin campaign. What gives me my strength and has ultimately molded and defined me as the person I am today is my family. From a young age my parents were always the biggest influences in my life. I wouldn't be where I am today, or who I am, without them. They were always my biggest supporters too. Anything I dreamt, they both believed in me and would tell me that I could achieve it and make it possible. To have that support and know they truly believed it, is an amazing feeling to have.
Whenever I need a little pep talk or reassurance, I talk to my dad. There is no one who has been there for me and helped more than my dad. He has been my rock from day one. When my mom passed away in 2013, my brother, my dad, and I all became even closer than we already were. We were shattered at her loss and had to somehow put the pieces back together again. While it was difficult, we all helped one another and found strength in being together. This blog was actually born in that time period. My very first post was a remembrance of my mom and what an amazing woman she was. Remembering her and what a strong woman she was gives me a drive to achieve all that I can. She never gave up and always had a positive attitude despite the circumstances with her illness.
I feel very blessed to have my family. Even with my mom passing, I know she is looking down and proud of all that I have achieved, especially thebirth of my daughter Ava. Being a mother myself now also gives me all the inspiration I need to be my best and most successful self. I now have my daughter looking to me, as i looked and still look to my parents for inspiration and confidence. My family has always been my number one source of empowerment and I cannot thank them enough for providing me with that.
