One of the blogs I follow has recently been posting these 30 Days of Truth writing prompts. (See list here: ) I thought, what a great idea!

Something you never get compliments on

I never get compliments on how far Ive come.

I got pregnant while I was in high school, which many people make it seem like its the end of the world….and in many respects, it does seem like the end of the world. My parents gave me an ultimatum and I ended up having to quit school, and I stopped seeing alot of my friends….but it isnt the end of the world.

I got my GED, and eventually ended up with an Associates Degree.

Not too shabby for this chick….you know, the one who used to color her hair whatever shade of the rainbow popped in her head that day.
