Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is cacy I’m 35 I live in Central KY with my 2 sons. I’m from Southern Ohio and moved in 2014. I’m a country girl and alot of the values of that slower lifestyle has stuck with me. Most of the time I’m with my kids but when I’m not I like working on my body art or taking a nice long nap.
What Inspires You Every day? : Most definitely my son. Him and I were in an incident in which our home was shot into in the middle of the night. We were both hit with the same bullet. It entered his temple area and exited then got lodged in my arm. He lost not only his eyesight but his eyes completely. His perseverance and strength through all of it is amazing. Hes definitely my hero. Wake up every day with a smile on his face nothing keeps him down.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Don’t let fear consume you. The day I let go of fear of death, imprisonment and most importantly, solitude is the day I truly felt freedom.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My goal is just to be the best happiest version of myself possible. To raise my kids to be decent, loving human beings, to never take anything granted and leave the world (even in the smallest of ways) better than before.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : 2020 was very final destination-ish for me. I lost my job at UPS due to covid, got a terrible infection that required 12 weeks of IV meds then I got shot in December, those are just the highlights. So yea 2020 can curl up and die.
What is a message you would like to give others? : The best advice I can give someone is be confident. So many issues are directly related to self esteem. Believe your top tier and you will begin striving for better, putting up with less and others will follow suit.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I’ve worn so many hats in my life, I’ve been the spoiled girl with a car waiting on her 15th birthday to an addict that woke up every morning wanting to die. Ive really been through it, abusive relationships, self harm, mental illness, addiction all of it and never felt really broke. But when my smart active 5-year-old was doing tricks on his bike and playing roblox one day and the next he has to have help walking from room to to room because he’s blind, now thats true pain of the heart. Now Im just trying to keep my head above water and take it day by day, minute by minute. Its hard sometimes not to let anger, guilt and remorse consume you, but I always remember that I have little people watching me. So I keep on keeping on.
