They always told me: "You're so tiny, you're not good enough, you're not even strong or talented. You're not pretty. You're not able to do that. Don't start it, you won't finish. You're just wasting your time. You should listen to us. You should do this. You should do that. But don't try what's in your mind. Cause for you... it's impossible."
Well, I never had that kind of idol in my inmediate surroundings who has reached really huge things, but my mum has always told me since I had my first dance lesson: "you're gonna be someone. More than an average person. You're gonna go and the world will know who you are." I don't know why, it's still in my mind. And I live my life with big dreams. Year to year, I proved everyone who did not believe in me that they were wrong. Yes, I am good enough even if I'm tiny. Yes, I am talented, and I'm pretty enough. And yes, I am strong. I went through a lot of hard things in my life, I could handle them. Alone. With no help. I stood up a couple of times, and even if I was in thousands of pieces I became a role model. Cause I was strong. I picked up the pieces. And here it is, the girl, who used to hate to run, who fainted after one mile, now she runs between 5-15 miles, every second day.
So, for some reason I'm so lucky I could learn how to dream, fight and not care about what people think about me, or what should I do. Cause I've always been that kinda person who did what she wanted to do.
And yes, I could. And I always will. Cause I don't know impossibility and limits...
