recently I have told you guys about how my life just fell completely through the floor in two weeks. from taking 5 steps forward to 20 steps back. I have been working my ass off to try and get where I need to be you know.. I was planning on going on a trip to Florida on the 24th so I was saving money doing whatever I could to get a little something here and there well I raised 80 dollars only for it to get stolen from either my moms house probly my mother but im not accusing her.. then I got cut from my food stamps which was another important part of the trip as well so I am not going..
im still fighting the battle to get disability and if I get denied this time then im taking it to court. its another mess but one thing I can say has happened :) << see that that's a smile :D
I few weeks ago I went to a physic and asked her the question that had been bothering me since the day I moved back in with my mom or even when I was living with friends I asked how long would I have to accept this struggle until I finally get back to having my life on track and she kept repeating THIS YEAR THIS YEAR remember that you will no longer struggle but your going to have to work to reach your above dreams and told me big things were coming in oct or nov and I was questioning is this real? well I am proud to say I am now a new Worker at Pizza Hut :) I got the job when she called me to ask me if I was still interested all I could do was cry.. she asked well why are you crying, don't you want this job? and sincerely I was like yess oh god yes im crying because you have taken such a huge weight off my chest you took away what has been worrying me for months and she said well what do you mean I explained to her I have been looking for work for three years and have had nothing but bad luck and how much this meant to me. she said I believe in you I look in your eyes and see the dedication in them and the want and working for us can lead to bigger and better things :)
so I am now an employee at Pizza Hut working as the cashier and was told id never have to touch the pizza that's what the men worked there for and all I needed to do was come to work stand there and look pretty
this news is the most exciting news I have gotten in three years lol three damn years but I hit my lowest and darkest point but something every time always told me to never give up :) and here I am
yes I may not be able to go to Florida but guess what guys I FINALLY HAVE a JOB
I went out to the club on Thursday and went on stage and held a toast on the v.i.p room
"i'd like to thank all my friends who have never gave up on me and always pushed me to believe I could do it, id like to thank all my haters to saying ill never amount to shit all my life, some of these people may be some of you but look at my now, this is only the beginning to my very successful life. this is the end to struggle and now being fanatically dependent and here is a start to a new journey in life, that will take me further and beyond, from here on out I will continue to prove everyone wrong, and no longer am I doing things to please others this is the first chance to say I did this for me and no one else, for a happy and successful life from here on out and we clinked glasses and my journey will now begin.
I am very proud to say I did this on my own but now I can finially get to where I want to be
goal 1. get my drivers lisence
goal2 put insurance on my car and get it put in my name
goal 3. go back to school and get my GED :)
goal 4. get into cosmetology school and get my lisence :)
goal 5. go back to school and get my business degree so I can open my own beauty shop :)
after I have reached those goals the sky will be the limit to how my life can turn
its going to be a process to get there but you gotta crawl befour you can walk
and I am so PROUD of myself

YAY YOU!!! Don't let anything stand in your way. Not even you, LOL…Even if something falls through, there will be something else poking up soon, so keep being persistent!

YOU CAN DO IT, YOU ARE DOING IT, and frankly, I'M PROUD OF YOU for being proud of you! LOL, how's that for a silly sentence…?

This is an amazing and very motivating story! I can relate as far as being in a downward spiral with no hope. Setting goals is the first thing you have to do on order to achieve them!
People only hate on you because they truly see your worth and potential. They envy the fact that they lack your skill, talent, motivation, and ability. I don't know you but I promise I believe in you! Baby steps is all it takes. One day at a time. Our struggles and hardship makes us stronger and builds character for the bigger plan/picture! I will tell you this, soak up everything around you like a sponge! Learn from every person you come across. Register your likes and dislikes of how Pizza Hut does business and what you would do and wouldn't do in your future salon. And if I leave you with one last thing it is this, when I was in college the most memorable thing I learned was that all these billionaires and millionaires and richest people in the world didn't even go to college. They failed time and time again. Failure is what helps us succeed! Also, you don't need a business degree to open your own business. It would benefit you of course to take some classes or get certified on how to run your own business but experience is the best lesson. Maybe one day get a job in a salon as a receptionist as you are going to cosmetology school. If you can't get a job volunteer to sweep cut hair and observe the salon. Good luck with everything and if you ever need to vent or talk, I'm all ears. I don't know everything but I can tell you what I do know or maybe help along with your journey. God bless!

Don't forget the local 'adult school' or even the beauty college you plan to attend (if you do). I'd bet they offer some classes in basic business management, from taxes to tips, and you might also check out YouTube for some classes on such stuff. Very useful!
