Life will always give you opportunity, you just need to take it when the time is right and embrace where it takes you. Don't be afraid of it, just be open and go for it.

There is #power in knowing and owning who you are. Embrace your uniqueness. Be true to yourself. Go out and #ownit! There are so many reasons why I know this is how I roll. For me it’s about #determination, #confidence, #strength, #motivation and the ability to laugh at yourself. It is never arrogance but a humble and strong understanding of who you are and being comfortable in that.

"Embrace your uniqueness. Be true to your self."

Understanding the ‘power’ of owning who you are and what you stand for is the most powerful tool you can unlock. It is the strength that allows you to be ok with who you are, brush off the things that get you down and make clear decisions. You are the only one that can. 

For a long time owning it wasn’t easy for me as I have always struggled with dyslexia. When dyslexia owned me, I found ways to hide it, to pretend it wasn't there. You become very crafty! The moment I decided that dyslexia didn’t own me and I owned it, was incredibly powerful for me.

Now I look my dyslexia as a blessing. There are so many wonderful qualities to how it shapes me. I am creative. I have a unique ability to think of things in a different way and have done my whole life. I am a terrific problem solver! 

Accepting and valuing this part of me has built my confidence incredibly. That decision taught me the strength to own who I am! I am so thankful for that! 

To anyone that wants to own it, know that you can. Life throws you all kinds of curve balls, catch them and throw them straight back. Be confident. Walk into a room and know who you are. Be determined. You’re the only one that can make things happen. Embrace who you are and #ownit.
