26 years ago my mother gave birth to a beautiful baby girl: ME!

I am another year older, another year wiser, and another year young. I made it to see another year! YAY ME! 25 was a trying time for me. I dealt with the addiction of a loved one, a break-up with them after a year of pain. Sure 25 had some good times. I also lost my grandpa, lost Chloe, and lost a few friends (I saw who was standing there still when the smoke cleared). I also started my journey on loving me for me. I am PLEASED to be under 200 pounds on this birthday. 

I thank God for taking me through the storm while holding my hand. Some nights, I wasn't sure I would make it through the night. Some days I wanted to just stay in bed and cry.

But I made it.

So what am I leaving behind?

I am leaving behind: Sadness, negativity,and Anyone or ANYTHING that didn't bring positivity to my life.

What am I taking with me?

I am taking lessons learned in loss. Love. And Life. I am truly a survivor. The strength I gained from the sadness and negativity will only help me grow.

HELLO 26!!
