It's been a while...
It's been a while since I've actually sat down to type up a blog post, and a lot has changed in my life; somethings for the better while others for the worse. Still, it has been an eventful time in my life.
As many of you know, this year hasn't been easy on anyone. With the Covid-19 pandemic going on, the world essentially being quarantined, the changes in the political climate, job loss, deaths, ETC. it's been hard to find reasons to smile. Most of us are dealing with more baggage and stress than we've ever had to before. Depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and tendencies and other mental health issues are thankfully getting a little more light shined on them in communities where they were once taboo to mention.
In this year alone, my family suffered unimaginable losses in the deaths of my grandmother, my cousin, and my mother in May. I've battle depression and anxiety, and I'm learning to adjust to what is now my new norm.
One of things that has kept me going is the love of people who truly support me. I'm a bit of an introvert. A cancer woman through and through who enjoys hiding out in her shell. Yet, there's always those few people who refuse to let you be, and this year, I am thankful for them. Also, my leaning on my faith has given me strength I honestly didn't believe I possessed.
I don't know what you're going through during this time, but know you're not alone! Saying a little prayer from my lips to HIS ears!
PS: Stay tuned for a special announcement in the upcoming days.
