Last question how do you feel about life and what changes you made to get where you are now?
That’s a good question.. how I feel about life? I think for the most part I feel really optimistic. I haven’t had the easiest life but I’ve had the most blessed life. I was in an abusive relationship when I got pregnant. That was probably the hardest thing I had to go through but out of that relationship I received one of my greatest gifts, my son. And I think that life is that way. You get in a bad spot but if you want to get out you can. And if you choose to life a better life then it will be better. I truly believe we have control over our own happiness. The changes I made…
Leaving that abusive relationship was the best change. It not only helped me be more excited about the baby but it helped me become a stronger, more loving woman. I had to sort through a lot of negative emotions to stay strong for my family and take the higher road. Lord knows I didn’t want to take the higher road. But once I did, I became a lot gentler. I loved more deeply. I forgave more easily and I never regretted what happened. When you have to walk through a fire you have to know that in order to be a diamond you will have to
get burned. And if you’re on a dark road you have to know
that eventually it will yield to a sunrise
