Certainty in Uncertainty

Several years ago during my sophomore year of college I found myself at my wits end. I had been awake over 42hrs unable to sleep from post-blood clot pain in my leg, I was anxious, and I was on the verge of a very large mental breakdown. My alarm clock had just gone off and…

HEAD ON COLLISION.

HEAD ON COLLISION. PART 1.2 What set everything in motion started a few days before my ER visit. I tore my ACL and went for the reconstruction surgery, unsuspecting of what was to come. “It’s a really great procedure, I’ve had it done twice,” said my surgeon. He assured me it was a simple and…

Overcoming Insecurity

Insecurity. You have no hold on me anymore. I am going to be honest with ya’ll, I felt insecure writing this. This is a small part of my story that I hope can encourage you where you are at! As soon as I was old enough to think about beauty and worth I was struggling….
