It's okay to not be okay. 2017 hasn't been easy. I moved to Illinois with nothing. No job. No place to live. I've been taken advantage of by people I considered close friends. I've lost several loved ones. (R.I.P Jesse, Alton & Primo Rangy). I've battled with my physical and mental health. In the midst of these experiences and lessons, I've had countless blessings. I've met some of the most beautiful souls that I have ever encountered this year. I've grown as a person, a business woman, and an artist. Regardless of the tragedy and unfortunate circumstances, I'm here. I am grateful for it all. I am loved. I am important. I am worthy. 

I will be the first to admit that I am complacent at times. I've allowed people to treat me as less than I know I'm worth. I've let things slide rather than confronting it in fear that I would lose something, whether that loss be a friendship, job, or opportunity. On the other hand, sometimes we do everything right, and we still lose. We all fall. We all waiver. We are human. Life is not about what happens to you, it is about how you come back from it.

This is my comeback.

We are powerful beyond measure. You are good enough. With God, you cannot fail. The universe is on your side. If you believe you cant, you wont. When you believe you can, you will.

I vow to no longer accept the things I cannot change, but change the things I cannot accept.
