This month reminds me of so many things…another year of learning and experience…another year to realize that I am strong enough to get through anything. This month last year everything changed for me. It almost seemed like everything I had taken for granted was taken from me over night. Those of you who are very close with me know what I battled. When you are young you never realize how fortunate you are to be healthy…it’s all you know. I was going through so much physically and emotionally. I was very sick and was in out of the hospital. I was having numerous tests done and felt very alone…all of this caused me to fall in a very dark place. Just in the last few months I managed to find strength that I didn’t even know I had left inside me and I forced myself to pull through. 2013 was the hardest year of my life and I have overcome my darkest days. I sit here and reflect. I will be turning 29 in a few days and I am so thankful for every single thing. I am stronger at this very moment than I ever have been and I can honestly say that nothing is weighing down on me. My heart is no longer heavy. You must learn to value yourself. You must learn to fight for your happiness. You have the strength inside you. You can overcome anything.
The clouds today looked so soft.
