I am so incredibly grateful this 2019 Holiday Season.
I talk a lot about my past trauma, current struggles, and mental health problems.
But I want to remind everyone AS WELL AS MYSELF that TRAUMA IS NOT OUR ONLY STORY.
While PTSD caused me to remember past events on REPEAT in my mind, I KNOW those are just STORIES and I AM SO MUCH MORE THAN MY TRAUMA.
By blogging about the things that KEEP ME UP, made me feel inadequate for ages, and kept me from SHOWING UP.
I FELT LIKE I NEVER FIT IN ANYONE ELSE'S BOX.
NO DEFINITION OF "ME" ANYONE ELSE CREATED FIT RIGHT FOR ME.
And that is because only I should and can decided WHO THE F I AM.
WHO I AM NOW.
In spite of the ghosts of who I used to be.
In spite of the people who have hurt me along my journey.
I am so incredibly grateful that i found myself.
And started a new CAREER.
I can officially announce that JADED SAVIOR has shifted into a business.
What that means is I finally found a thing I love to do and can show up every day doing while juggling being a stay at home mom and my own healing journey.
I have received support and love from my husband and our little family to do this.
So 2020, J.S. is coming for you.
Beyond that, I am grateful for this little family and this little world I am building for us.
For these beautiful, devoted and caring people who have come into my life this year.
I'm grateful for the people who have LEFT.
For the NEW #boundaries I have set.
For the ways I NOW HONOR MYSELF.
I'm so proud of myself for deciding i would FIND HELP AND SUPPORT for my mental health issues.
That i did not have to hide or suffer any longer.
2019 has been a year of rehabilitation on my mind, body and soul. ♡
I'm thankful and grateful for the CLARITY I now have.
For the opportunities now showing up at my door.
For the things I am learning and the lessons I am being given to BOOST my mind and spirit.
For the amazing opportunities I have to collaborate with powerhouse women fighting daily to make a difference.
I'm so grateful for my FACEBOOK FEED.
That is right.
SOCIAL MEDIA SAVED MY LIFE THIS YEAR.
From being in a deep depression to seeking and finding purpose.
By showing me that LOVE AND EMPOWERMENT EXIST.
BY MATCHING ME WITH SOUL SISTERS.
Thank you Universe for providing for me once I decided I was worthy of the things and stopped thinking about how unworthy other people ever made me feel.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND REMEMBER THERE'S SO MUCH TO BE GRATEFUL FOR.
