Depression

Being born with a birth defect I faced the overwhelming feeling of depression at an early age.

I began to look at both sides of my family and I soon realized that I was the only one who was born with a cleft lip and palate.

So the big question popped up in my head, why me?

I took this question to my Great-Grandma, Annie Mae Hardy and she told me that God don’t make mistakes and that I have purpose.

I’m alive today because my family spoke life into me, not despair.

So when I get depressed, I quickly speak life into myself, I think about my journey thus far, I think about my journey moving forward and all life has the offer.

Transparency

Y’all, it’s been a very trying week to say the least.

First, a pipe bursted on my hot water heater, then my truck broke down.

I was trying to keep my mind focused on the positive but my anxiety kicked in big time.

How much will I have to come out of pocket?

Will I have enough?

Will my insurance cover the water damage?

I just took a few deep breaths and exhaled throughout my entire body, releasing all of that negative tension.

I’m looking forward to going on another winning streak, on to the next one!
