When Pressure makes Diamonds

I was going to name this post “A diamond in the rough” but I’m no longer in rough. What I can say is that with all the pressure that I’ve been through in the past few months as becoming a new mom, my battle with depression and anxiety, and restructuring my business, a new woman has emerged. 👑💎

I literally feel like a brand new person, and let me tell you the transition was not easy. Seeing my life change before my eyes as I had to make adjustments was hard for me. From selling my first dream car that I purchased right out of college, from having Quad almost a month early with no crib, no bassinet, or car seat in sight, then to not being to travel out of town to work on my passion. Not only did having a baby change the course of things, COVID-19 just came through and shut EVERYTHING down!

What the year 31 taught me is that you receive what you put out, which encouraged me to be a better individual in my personal relationships and even to strangers. It has also taught me you can have Jesus and a therapist. Talking to a professional saved me. I didn't realize how much emotional baggage I was carrying around. The fact that I thought it was normal to have all that in my mind and in my spirit was unreal. I was to the point where I could no longer carry all the dysfunctional thoughts in my head and care for a new baby. I’m not going to go too much into that on this post but if you have the money/ health insurance and the resources to go to therapy, I will highly suggest it. Being able to speak freely, to manage my thoughts and moods has been a really good feeling.

May there be more laughter, more love, more peace of mind! May there be more learning, more connections, more bags! May I continue to heal, continue to set goals and win! So here’s to 32.
