One of the greatest mistakes is following the path of another forgetting that everyone has a different path.
When I was in high school I made up my mind I wasn’t going to attend college; I wanted to attend a dancing school and work on my talent.
Nobody was in support of my decisions; the teachers said I was a dummy for choosing dancing, forgetting I always had nice grades.
My friends stopped being around me, saying I’m a bad influence and might stop them from going to college.
My parents were having none of it and they cut off all my allowances; everyone rejected the path I set up for myself.
It hasn’t been years already and I can’t but be happy at my achievements so far.
I’m recognized globally and have won a lot of awards and I’m proud of all I have done in a space of seven years.
I refused to follow a path that was already laid down; I made mine and it was the best decision I ever made in life.
Everyone that ever called me stupid now wants to be identified with me; I changed my story.
It wasn’t easy at the beginning and I was tempted many times to do what others are doing,
but I paused and smile because I remembered I’m on a different path.
The path I choose gave me a lot of reasons to live; my mental health was at #stake when everyone keeps telling me I was walking down a useless path, but my path showed me light.
I dance to be happy and it makes me feel alive; I entertain people and put smiles on their faces too, I can’t ask God for a better path if not this.
