It has now been two weeks since the big move to Bakersfield, California. I haven’t really got to explore yet, but according to most people there really isn’t anything to explore here. Honestly though I feel like in still in the Inland Empire. The only difference I have noticed so far is the huge oil machines pumping oil from the ground. Most people would of probably recommended me not to move here, but honestly I moved here for a great job opportunity. To say the least I am already in love with my new cheer family and where my career is heading. For the first time I feel really valued as an individual for what I have to bring to the table. My roles are taken seriously by those who surround me and I just adore all the kids. I can’t say that I don’t miss all my friends, family and old gym, but change was needed. Even though many people would never even think of moving here I am happy with my decision. I thank all the people who have supported me through this and still continue to do so. I believe I’m in good hands here and will be allowed to grow from the person I was into one of the best versions of me.
It’s sad to know that people who were once in your corner have turned their backs on you and put you in a bad space. Now that I have decided being in that position wasn’t healthy and got out of it, those people are nowhere to be found and probably somewhere talking trash about me. Although I can care less about what others who weren’t even on my side from day one have to say about me. I am glad that I got to go through situations like these because now I know better and I also know that I have way more self-worth than what was being perceived previously.
Here is what I have learned going through all this; Never settle for less, love yourself because if you don’t nobody will or love you more than you can, and never doubt yourself and self-worth/value. Because what others don’t see, someone else will see. I feel like my time is now and I must take advantage of all circumstances to head into the right direction I know I want my life to go towards. Always remember that you can do whatever you set your mind to even when people don’t believe in you or tell you that you can’t. But then again what do I know?
