Happy Monday, loves
It’s been quite a minute. I believe this is the longest I have been away from the blog, but I’m finally getting back to planning and shooting content.
I took a long and much needed break, not necessarily because I wanted to, but because unforeseen life events have forced me to. I lost my dear mother on August 15th of this year, and it’s been very heartbreaking to say the least.
I’m still struggling with this loss, but I pray every day for strength and peace in the tough times that my family and I are going through; and I’m grateful to being able to bounce back one day at the time.
I read something similar to these words: “The pressure will either fold you or mold you; and it’s up to you to choose…”; and as for me, I’m choosing for this pain to mold me into a better version of myself!
The truth of the matter is, pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice. Debatable? Maybe so, but I’m choosing to live a life my dear mother would’ve been proud of me for. She may be gone, but her spirit lives within us, and her legacy will be carried on.
We all have wounds, but we can’t allow that to be an excuse to sit on the sidelines. For everyone who might have lost a loved one or feel some type of deep pain, I pray for healing and hope that you don’t let this pain eat you up. Please get up and live! Live right and live well! Live on your terms only… after all, tomorrow isn’t promised.
My heartfelt thanks to all of you who have truly supported me from near or afar in this difficult time of my life. Anyone can show up for you when things are alright, but the ones that stay by your side no matter what, when your heart falls apart, are the ones that truly care about you; and from the bottom of my heart, I say THANK YOU!!!
For you, my virtual friends who have reached out and showed me compassion, support, and love, I’m sincerely grateful. I’m also thankful for friends who pray for me, pray with me, and pray over me, so that when I smile like this, I can truly mean it.
So, here’s to me bouncing back one day at the time! I’m glad to be back and I’m excited about the great changes ahead! 🙂
Love & Light,
