Are you excited about the direction your life's going in? But you also have miniature moments of sadness and intense pressure? My last few weeks comprised of this! I could be in a moment of gratefulness, then abruptly switch into negative thoughts + feelings that attempt to intervene back in my life.
I kept my mind and heart in check by writing a blog excerpt for my friend’s blog about romance after heartbreak. Also, social media quotes + posts have their way of helping + being exactly what I need to get through.

2016 changed me
I almost went to running and screaming in my room! 2016-2018 held some of my greatest and roughest, complicated moments.

Accept the past and let it empower you to become a better woman, friend, lover, and everything else in between.
I might always preach this, but I’m truly preaching this #MoxieMondayMotivation post to myself today. Ever since my 25th birthday, a fire has been increasing in my belly. My attitude and optimistic outlook is increasing drastically. I've completely owned every situation, within my life and stopped playing "victim game."
Why did it take me so long to own it?! Who knows. Time heals all, and situations take time to process every single detail. After learning one of my core weaknesses, all the heartache and struggles began to make sense. Women, generally, hold onto a lot of situations that no longer serves them. That was/is me, which I'm working hard to change.
Owning it alone will not make the process any easier, but jumpstarts the healing process. Find tangible and practical exercises, such as:
Now I'm ready to do everything possible to completely make myself whole and healed for myself. I affirm the post's last statement to be true. I am coming back with grace, power, and moxie!
