There are a million reasons to feel blessed today, aside from the usual #friyays. It is Good Friday and I am awake with glee on this wonderful morning. I have coffee in hand and am genuinely thankful for so many things in my life.
I have been documenting my recovery back into happiness, the past month, and am finally in a place of content and joy. There has been so much spiritual work that I have done along the way to heal my past pains. Today is a day that I give thanks for the sacrifice Jesus made. I am a sinner, I have hurt others, I am not clean, but I am forgiven because of His sacrifice. He is the reason I am not defined by my past.
I just want to also say how blessed I am to have found this platform to express a part of me I had shut off from the world. I love reading, writing, painting, lyrics, and music. I felt like I gave up writing when I decided to go into the sciences but decided to give blogging a shot again. I wanted a place to express myself in a way that didn’t feel … superficial. Social media has become a place of perfectly plastered happiness. I was unsure my deep blogs, on everyday struggles, would find a place of belonging. It has. I want to thank every single one of you for giving me this space of belonging, and I would like to thank every single one of you for the undying love and support you have provided me with. Every uplifting comment and message has sparked hope back into my life. You are all so precious – the power of words are … so much more then you think it is. Don’t ever forget that. That is the reason why books are burned and people are silenced. Words are your power.
Love and light,
