Hey Everyone! For those of you who know me well you know that I am an open book... I like sharing my experiences with people because you never know what someone else is going through and maybe what you have gone through and learned from it is exactly what that someone needs to hear! So... The past 3 years of my life have been extremely hard on me. I have been through a lot and would have never imagined ever having to go through some of the things that I did. For a long time I gave up on me. I let someone else control the way I treated myself physically and emotionally. I gave up on my goals and dreams. I felt broken. I felt extremely lonely. I didn't feel worthy. & mostly I felt stuck...
Let me tell you guys a little something that took me years to learn... You are NEVER too stuck, it is never too late to turn your life around, You ARE worthy, You don't have to be lonely, & you can piece yourself back together! It's not easy to climb out of the valleys and start all over again but GOSH... when you reach those mountain tops that you thought you'd never see... It is so worth it. My saving grace and how I got to this place has been rebuilding my relationship with the one who created me and finding a church that drastically changed my way of thinking, praying, and dealing with my circumstances. God has been so good to me in this time of growth and he has molded me in ways that have changed the darkest parts of me into light & my pain into unimaginable joy. Everything for me has changed and I don't have words to express my gratitude.
This does not mean that life isn't still hard. This doesn't mean that I wont deal with many burdens & obstacles down the road. BUT this does mean that I have the strength, grace, and wisdom to deal with them. This means I know how to take difficult times and use them to grow and learn instead of letting them bury me in darkness. It means I have goals and dreams again. It means that I know exactly what I want, need, and deserve & that there is so much hope for my future. My heart is so full and I have so much to give but this time I'll remember to give some of to myself too ;) because I deserve it.
Thanks for reading & I hope this touches someone!
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
