” I live for the nights that I can’t remember, with the friends that I’ll never forget.”

Yesterday was my birthday!! I’m officially 21 years old again… for like the millionth time HA! Seriously I feel so blessed to live to see another birthday. It wasn’t too long ago I had ended a disastrous relationship turned engagement with my so-called “soul mate.” I was dealing with moving from the state that had been my home for over 10 years, some serious anxiety and eating issues due to the stress of it all, and unfortunately lost some friends I thought would be in my life forever along the way. It was a surprise to many when it all went down, because for a long time I was living this fake existence. Seemingly happy on the outside, miserable on the inside.

Sometimes when you’re seriously are on the wrong path, God (Universe) has to pump the brakes hard, and make you fall flat on your face to get you back on track. Sure it sucked at first. It was also pretty humiliating, humbling and all those emotions one goes through when you have to start all over again.

But I did it, and because of that no one, or situation can ever break me again. I’ve been there, done that and while I may feel very sad and grieve when something crappy happens, I know now that life will not only go on, it gets better. My mess is now my message.

Top 3 life lessons I learned:

1. When someone shows you who they are, believe them.

2. When you embrace the things that make you feel insecure, no one can no longer use them against you.

3. There is no better feeling that a happy and healthy mind, body and spirit. Reinvent yourself to be exactly who you always wanted to be.
