I told you I was going to get back to the things that bring me joy, and I am. 💕 Without getting into too much detail, I found myself blindsided by a bump in the road this week. I have been thriving, sparkling, soaring, then bam. I am working hard to put this bit of bad in it’s own tiny little sliver, to be dealt with only when needed, so that it can’t overtake me. I will not be rendered immobile. I will not be paralyzed by fear. I will fight, I will survive, I will continue to live this newfound happy life I deserve, after so much darkness. This picture is a reminder that I am more than my hardships. I am hopes, dreams, heart, mother, daughter, friend, love, and creative force...and I have only just begun. My story does NOT stop here. And will never stop at the hands of someone else. No. The answer is NO.
