I learned to change my thoughts and to find joy amidst the everyday struggle my life had become consumed by. I started taking my life back!
The pain isn’t going anywhere but that doesn’t mean I have to lose my purpose. My identity was lost in the darkness and Mandy showed me how to get out. She showed me how hang on to that beautiful and courageous woman that was inside of me bursting to come out.
I still have rough days; however, I am grateful to be more than just my pain.
