It's Always A Win: Tough Times Create Tough Women

Not long ago, I wrote about how Mr. Perfect appeared in my life when I stopped looking for him. Maybe I leapt too far or too fast. I put my faith in someone and something that I thought was very real. For a short period of time, it was real. And just as quickly as something wonderful began, it ended.

I can't say that I am bitter about it, because I am not. I have experienced every possible emotion in the last few days. I have been reminded that I can feel things. Although I am capable of trusting someone, my insecurities, fears, and demons will always play a part in my life. It is who I am. I can't and won't change that. Maybe I need to own my insecurities, because deep down they will always be there.

Tough times create tough people. In my case, I have emerged as a stronger woman. I have loved again, and I have learned. I have grown. Teaching moment!

Here are my favorite ways to help me through tough situations:

1) Family - My brother is my rock. He only wants what is best for me, and he reminds me of how much I deserve. My daughters are the reason I get out of bed every day. They bring me more happiness than any man will ever be able to.

2) Friends - Everyone needs good friends. My best friend is the greatest person alive. She has listened to me scream and cry, and then turn around and rationalize every possible scenario. She supports my decisions and passes no judgment. (I love you to infinity and beyond, JB!) A soulmate can be found in friendship, and this woman is mine!

3) Alcohol - I am not an alcoholic. I am a grown-ass woman, and if a shot, or 8, chills me out sometimes, then that choice is mine.

4) Work - At the end of the day that $100 bill won't talk back. We live in an era where money is power. Respect the hustle!

5) And, last but certainly not least, the badass women of Unchained Jane have been an amazing support system! I am proud to be part of such a kickass team. These women have been incredibly supportive of me and haven't for one second let me forget my worth. #badasstribelife

This is just another chapter coming to a close. I have created some wonderful memories, and I have grown from this experience. My heart hurts, but in time it will heal. Learn from your tough times and rise from the ashes.

Tough women will rule this world!
