Hey y'all. I know. It's been a minute....

I must admit that my disposition has been lower than a snail's stomach the past couple of months. I started off the year in a not so great place emotionally and it sunk even lower than that. I have been praying and writing and keeping myself closed off to the point where I felt like I wanted to disappear.

 I am still fragile, not 100 percent yet but I am focusing on being thankful.
Sweater: Marshalls
Skirt: H&M
Bag: Zara
Tights: Target
Shoes: Michael Kors
Hair: Braidout using MyHoneyChild Twist Out
  There are so many others who have it worse than I do and I realized that it was selfish of me not to be cognizant of other people's struggles. With all of the problems that are affecting people,
who am I not to be grateful?  I am living and loving my way through this life as best I can.
You only get one shot at it.

"When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.

 When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can..." – Steve Maraboli

I am sorry to hear that you have been in a dark place,especially since you are such a bright light for so many. Remember some one told you that you seem to have an inner light. This is so true. It comes across this digital computer screen. You shine so brightly a. Whatever you are going through right now is ok........we all go through these periods. As long as you don't stay there and marinate in it, don't let it start to feel good to you. Anyway, you already know how blessed you are, and you will be in my prayers also. Now go on with your bad self.6
