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 🎉
