Do you ever look back to see how much you’ve grown? One minute you’re at the point where you don’t really look into your future. Well, the future is unknown but it’s nice to think what could be and where you could go. How often do you think about taking chances?
In the past there were occasions when I probably spent too much time trying to be the person I thought others wanted me to be. Or trying to be a kind of person that ‘fits in with the crowd’. But it didn’t take me long to realise that the best person you can be is yourself. There’s billions of us on earth so why would we want to be like everyone else?
Stop to think, “I’m going to be myself and I’m going to do my best.”
I can be a quiet person but it doesn’t mean to say that I’m not bubbly and fun because I also have that side too. Once someone really knows me or clicks with me there’s a level of weirdness and randomness you’ll see from me and isn’t think, “Ah that’s just Tasha being Tasha.”
When I was a teenager I didn’t really think too much into the future. For me, it was all about trying to succeed at school, college and university. And to hopefully end up in a job I enjoy. Never did I think I’d of found a love so strong, a man I can call my best friend, and that we would be in the process of buying our new home together. Without the determination to get to where I am today, that wouldn’t have been possible.
Life is about taking chances. I said yes to being with Danny (after many attempts of him asking me), an organisation took a chance saying yes to employing me, and together me and Danny have said yes to facing any challenges that have come our way.
Taking chances can be scary but it can be so exciting too.
Just when you feel so complete, it’s incredible to think that even more amazing things can happen. They don’t come without challenges along the way, but that’s part of taking chances. Your accepting the possibilities that other things could happen or things might not go to plan, but hoping for the best.
I’m so lucky to be where I am today with Danny. I can’t wait to take more chances and see where the world takes us.
