:: FULL DISCLAIMER:: I'll receive backlash for this but it's worth it. People need to know they aren't alone! So from The One Girl Revolution to Hail Hendrix, here's my challenge to YOU... The pursuit of one's dreams isn't easy. Being a woman isn't easy. Finding true friends isn't easy. Overcoming mistakes isn't easy. If life was easy and dreams were easy, everyone would do it. It takes love. It takes guts. It takes gumption. The courage to look yourself in the mirror and find things you love about yourself. I've been told my mother should've aborted me. I've been told I'm too fat for TV. I've been told I'm too skinny like a lollipop. I've been told I should have killed myself so my family won't see what I've become. I've struggled with anxiety, depression, cancer, suicide, and more. I've had my ups and downs. I'm honestly glad! Makes for a much better story! People will say the worst of things. Doesn't make them true. I'm proud of the woman I am today. I fought to survive and thrive. People will say it's reverse progress, but that's their opinion. I'm proud of women who work hard to overcome. It's not easy! So, I challenge you to look in the mirror every day and find things you love about the person staring back at you. Then use that to make the world a better place than how you found it. Know you aren't alone. Take a stand! Be the change! We ALL matter! Find your reason to survive and thrive!

Reflecting on this day last year; it's not the day daddy passed but it's the day I got to hold his hands and feel his warmth, or rub my fingers through his soft hair, and it's the day he took so much strength out of himself to just stand up and embrace my brother and I for one last hug. And as I sit here and grieve by your stone people come up to me and tell me what a great man you were. I couldn't be more proud to be your daughter. ❤️ #daddysgirl#missingyou#newbedford#peopleofnewbedford#amazingman#fishingindustry#galinha#portugese

Monday Morning but I'm dreaming about how I wish I could just spend the day at the beach again like I did yesterday afternoon with my little 💖 bringing her for her yearly physical later and I'm a little worried about the solar eclipse, it's only dangerous if you look directly into it right?
When it feels like I'm constantly getting attacked, it's comforting to know I always have the love, understanding, and that don't mess with my kids attitude from my Mum! She's my Super Hero! She makes me feel like I can fight every one. I may bleed, but she's showed me I can wipe it on my face as my own God given war paint! Come at me and I'll show you what I'm made of. Tell your Mum you love her. When we are busy growing up, we forget our parents are growing old. Appreciate. Respect yourself to stand up for yourself and the life your parents gave you. You matter. You aren't alone! You have purpose.
