The day that I left Georgia and began my journey with the navy, I knew one thing. That the day I came back I wanted to be totally different. I knew that I wanted to have achieve greats things as well as learn somethings as well. But, I never would’ve imagined that I would have achieved so much in a short amount of time. You see, I could list all the things I have achieved since I left home but that’s not the point of this speech. The point is to look at the seed that I used to be and how I have learned to spread my roots in order to become someone better than before. You see with just the right nutritions like motivation, dedication, consistency, patience and many more. I was able to accomplish some goals that started off just like me, a little seed just waiting to spread. You see, I felt drained and tired at times but it’s mostly from the amount of energy I had to put in, in order to be able to reach my goals while serving for my country. But, I would say that even though I have been drained and tired at times, I don’t regret anything I had to do to get to where I’m at now. You see, I allowed myself to spread my roots and grow into someone who believes in change not only in others but also in himself. You see, so far I have proven to myself that I can change for the better and so can other people, but only if we allow ourselves to spread our roots. You see, we hold ourselves back and we stop ourselves from going the distance. At times, I feel like we are too afraid to spread our roots because we don’t know what’s pass the seed. But, I also feel like we will never know what’s pass the seed if we don’t spread our roots and figure it out. So I say to you don’t be afraid to grow, position yourself in growth, and spread your roots to form a better you.
