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 I’m still in the Inland Empire. The only difference that I have noticed so far, is the huge oil machines pumping oil from the ground. Most people would have probably recommended 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 much needed. Even though most people would never 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. Since I have decided that the position I was in, wasn’t healthy and had to get out of it. Everyone who claims to be my friends or family should just be happy for me. Although I can careless about what the nay sayers think. I am glad that I got to go through a situation like this, because now I know better and I know that I have way more self-worth than what I perceived in myself.
Here is what I have learned from this experience; Never settle for less, love yourself because if you don’t nobody will love you more than you can, and never doubt yourself-worth/value. Because what others don’t see, someone else will see. I feel like my time is now and I must take full advantage of all circumstances to head into the right direction. 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?
