When I think back to what my ancestors and your ancestors had to endure whether during slavery or as immigrants in a far away land, they all faced and overcame hardships.
I think now in today’s modern world of our own oppression and oppressors and in my moments of weakness and defeat, draw strength from those before me.
They gave us the foundation on which we’ve become educated individuals, but yet we fail to see our own power; our own self-worth.
No one should be able to make us feel as though we aren’t mighty men and women capable of doing anything and everything we imagine for ourselves and our loved ones.
Be who you were meant to become! One of my favourite poems is titled “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley and one of the most powerful lines of that poem reads “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.”
Steer your own success and conquer defeat! Life and living is yours for the taking.
