Mental Health Is Important
The last couple of weeks have been a struggle to live through, and then I was challenged to my breaking point. Unfortunately, the medical system failed me and my own skills were not refined enough to equip me to handle my emotional state. I honestly wouldn’t have made it if it weren’t for the love, patience, and support of my friends. It was a fucking tough climb, but scrambling out of the hole I was in made me realize that this is the time in my life to face my demons.
As children, we sculpt our perspectives through experiences; as teenagers, we question and rebel; as young adults, we attempt to establish ourselves; and as adults, our delusion of our establishment gets tested through pressures of every aspect of our life. —— We have an idea of what we want from life. In order to attain each aspect, life puts these pressures on us to see if we’re actually ready to receive it and continue to handle any trials it comes along with. ——— I’ve learned to be grateful for the light and darkness in my life- they’ve made me who I am today and allowed me to feel the most intense pain and the deepest love. Now, I’m learning to recognize my flaws and modify my behaviors to give ❤️ MYSELF LOVE ❤️ and be the best version of me.
To be the best version of me for myself, my dog, Mother Nature, and other souls... but, mainly for my dog.
At times, I’m scared, sad, lonely, and feel hopeless.
And other times, I’m excited to put in the work to continue to progress myself. I’m proud of rising above the low I was in, being vulnerable with friends, and taking steps to steadily get better. I’m fucking elated to understand that triggering situations cause us to expose our problematic behaviors that we developed because of deep rooted traumas that stunted our ability to unpack feelings in a healthy way.
I’m consciously growing, learning, and loving.
Because a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Weekend fun! .
I really like this picture because it’s so misleading. It looks like I am taller than Lauren, when in actuality she is 3 inches taller than me. I’m 5’5” and Lauren is 5’8”. She thinks she’s a giant, but I just call her my tall glass of water! Lol 😂💯
We are so lucky we got to win tickets to the @thewoodyshow DCA takeover. We had so much fun even though Amanda’s allergies were awful and our flight home got canceled and we got stuck in California for 5 days 😂
