    It's incredibly sweet,

    I ve been through so much these past five years.

    Loss, disappointment, and resentment all played a role in who I am becoming. Love, being hopeful, and open to the impossible is a magical thing.

    Gratitude.

    If my life has taught me anything at all, it is that gratitude and hope go hand in hand. I spent most of my childhood and young adult years severely depressed. My life was not ideal. I struggled with feelings of rejection and abuse of more than one kind. I was a believer in...

    sometimes I feel as if I take everything I have

    for granted. I am blessed beyond the means I deserve and hope I am able to repay it forward. sometimes we need to take a step back from the materialistic wants and wishes and appreciate what we do have.. I just did and that's rare for me.

    Hope.

    Sometimes I think I'm too trusting of myself. It's as if I'm in an on-going mental game of comparing and contrasting my ability to overcome obstacles against that of the status quo. It isn't a conscious thing, but when I take the time to think about it I can see it quite clearly...
