Hello 24☀️

Today I am so thankful for the life I get to live. There were many days that I wasn’t sure that I would make it to this number. As a teenager I was convinced my story wouldn’t last this long. I fought through trauma from sexual abuse and struggled to overcome self harm. I figured that even if I did survive it all, I would live in darkness and depression.

Thank you Jesus that this is not my reality. I am alive. I am happy. I am growing and becoming more myself everyday. I have hard days but they don’t define me.

This whole year has been a whirlwind. Moving to Atlanta with my husband, starting my work as an extra, reading 100+ great books, and rediscovering my love for writing.

I’m filled with hope that this year will be even better 🎉

  1. This post is so heartfelt, you’re vulnerability is appreciated. It’s amazing how we think in the mist of the most horrendous events we can go through, God has the power to get us through them, and here you are! Wishing you the happiest of birthdays and to the many more to come! 🙂

    1. Yes 🙏🏽 With all the dumb $h!t I did after a heartbreak years and years ago, it’s a miracle I still have a pulse! I never thought I’d be married much less have six littles. It has all been truly according to His plan! Blessing to you 😊

  2. Well done for coming so far and enduring those difficult days. I appreciate the honesty, I too have suffered similar things and I refuse to let that determine my way now. Keep going and always focus on the good things to come x
