“It is more important to go slow and gain the lessons you need along the journey then to rush the process and arrive at your destination empty.”

It’s been awhile since my last blog. I entered a very dark place during my depression which I am slowly pulling myself out of. Initially, I created this blog website as a creative and positive outlet for me which I have been neglecting. One of the biggest lessons I am learning is how to trust the process of healing. Constantly reminding myself to take it one day at a time and that it takes time to unpack, process and deal with hurt, trauma, etc. I’m learning to not beat myself up if I have a halt in progression with my depression but to allow the moment to happen, pass and not dwell on it.

In addition, I’m learning how important it is for me to reach out to family and friends that I know love and care for me and not bottle everything up inside to deal with alone. The hardest part of this healing process is being a mother and single parent while constantly struggling to hide and deal with my loneliness and pain. However, my daughter has become my biggest motivation to get myself together and pull through the darkness so that I can be the light she needs.
