✨Way back Wednesday✨
13 years ago, today, I started the most intense journey I’ve ever been on! I started at one of the most elite police training academies in the Midwest. I had ZERO idea what I was getting into and ZERO idea I would learn so much about myself in seven short months. In fact, I was told by several I would never make it. Well, little did those people know, that only made me push harder to prove them wrong. It was the first time in my life I’d proved to myself just what I was capable of.
I met this lady at testing, before we could even apply for the PD. We instantly hit it off and were #besties
throughout our seven month academy journey. We pushed each other to be better everyday and picked each other up on those bad days.
After seven months, we’d finally made it! This pic was at our graduation 11/03/06. Little did we know, 13 years later, neither of us would be with the department, but just as driven to succeed and cheering each other on!
It’s crazy to see where my life is now versus where I thought it’d be...but I have to say, I’m 100% okay with it!
Although I miss my law enforcement career terribly, I choose to reflect on Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” #waybackwednesday #throwback #girlgang #squad #journey #courage
