I took some time offline to start the healing process, but I think I’m ready to start posting again...
It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I lost my mother to breast cancer in August last year. I didn’t take the time to mourn in a healthy manner because I had to give birth to my son a couple of months after she passed away, in October. The year mark of my mother’s passing really sparked a lot in me. Made me really realize how hurt I truly was and how I had been holding things back because I wanted to be present with the joy of having my son and not deal with the pain of such a tremendous loss.
It was effecting my creativity and I just felt uninspired. This new chapter in my life is allowing me to take time to think about what really matters in life. It’s so easy to get caught up in things that, at the end of the day, really don’t matter. Especially when you're living in LA. But over the last couple of months, In my most broken moments, I was able to really think about my life, my family and what truly matters. It has led me to make some big decisions and go through incredibly challenging lengths to pursue peace and live in purpose. And I'm happy I've decided to walk along a path that positions me to take better care of myself and my family.
I know my lack of engagement on social media over the past few months has caused some to lose interest, but I’m thankful for those who stand by me through it all. If I’m going to be on social media, I want it to make an impact on people in an uplifting way. I look forward to connecting in a much more authentic way and start rebuilding.
