#BBL Inspiration: Play Your Cards Right

BBL Inspiration

“You don’t have a right to the cards you believe you should have been dealt. You have an obligation to play the hell out of the ones you’re holding” -Cheryl Strayed

Ever felt like your life would have been better if you were born a different person? Perhaps, you’d have a husband already if you were tall, thin and blonde, or maybe you’d have your dream job as a doctor if you had been born to rich parents…

The fact of the matter is that you weren’t born that way and if that’s what’s holding you back from your dreams, then you’re crap out of luck. See, you could have been born with a gold spoon in your mouth and still starve. And you could have gone to the best school money could pay for and still never learnt a thing. Because who you are and what you’re capable of doing has absolutely nothing to do with the conditions under which you were born.

Life dealt everyone a hand of cards from the same deck; how you play is what will make the difference. Think about some of the people who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks and still came out to be something. Look at Eminem, Dr. Ben Carson, Gabrielle Douglas…all the people who took the cards they were dealt and still stuck around to play the good game.

What will you be doing with your hand of cards?

XO, Amber Christe
