I don't know what's around the corner, but I try to have faith that whatever lies in the mystery ahead is filled with blessings. Even if they don't seem like a blessing at first, I try to remember that everything that has happened in my life has led me here. To this precious moment. If I took away any of the stepping stones that got me here the entire road would crumble. It wasn't easy going through some of my darkest days. I had to truly struggle to find the light in certain moments. But I never gave up hope. I always knew deep in my heart who I was, and that I would get through anything. And now here I am, with an incredible 10 year old son who tells me everyday how much he loves and appreciates me. Honestly, what else could I have asked for? Of course, I still want my dream career, but it won't compare to the bond I have with that little boy. I had to really struggle to heal and become more and more present for him. But I did it, and continue to do it. Almost daily now, I see an ugly part of myself that I attempt to look at honestly but with compassion. Changing is hard, but I feel blessed that I was able to wake up in this lifetime, and have the opportunity to heal lineage-old wounds. Like I said, I don't know what's around the corner, but if it's half as beautiful as my son then I'm more than ready.
