Hey Instagram! It’s been a while.
I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus, which really started about six months ago. For half a year, my life turned into a bit of a roller coaster ride as the Universe put me through a series of trials. To summarize, my car broke down, my parents borrowed $10,000 from my bank account, I had a crazy cancer scare, went through months of cancer testing, and the list goes on. Without insurance, transportation, or cash to dish out, I was left isolated and cut off from my world while trying to figure this all out. I’d be lying if I said it was easy. But mama didn’t raise no quitter. 🏼 I pulled through, and every single hurdle that life threw at me, I fought with everything I had. But most importantly, I had a lot of time to myself to think.
For a long time, I didn’t know what the outcome would be. You always hear people say “life is so short,” but it doesn’t really hit you until it’s actually laid out in front of you. There are so many different choices I could have made, and still could make, to live a better life. The BEST life - I’ve only got one, and I’m not getting any younger. If there’s one good thing that came out of this experience, it’s the self-reflection and awakening that came with it. I’ve been seeing life through new eyes, with an insatiable yearning to experience everything that I possibly can. Like the rock gods once said, “it’s better to burn out, than fade away.” And I’ll be damned if I let myself fade away.
Last year I attended a conference in the desert for half a week, all about promoting passion. During that conference, we were asked what it was that we were searching for. My answer was “fire” - I wanted to find my fire.
Well, I’ve found it. And I’m ready to rise from these ashes and let my fire burn brighter than ever before. This is only the beginning.
