Living with Anxiety I’ve lived with anxiety my entire life and as a teenager, it enveloped me. As I got older I became stronger and more resilient. As you grow you tend to worry less about the little things and you learn to appreciate each moment, even the struggles. I’ve learned to breathe through the trying moments and my anxiety no longer controls me, but it took me years to get to the place I […]

You

I walked by you in my ripped jeans and cowgirl boots and that was all it took for everything to change. I could feel your eyes on me, but I pretended not to notice. I flipped my long hair over my shoulder and kept walking, but I couldn’t ignore you. You were something different and my heart knew before the rest of me that it was you. It’s crazy how I went from not knowing […]

 Life can be scary and stressful, no doubt! But, with PTSD it just comes with the territory. When I was raped Sophomore year of high school, everything changed. I’ll remember the details of that night forever; the night ended with my hand punching my bathroom mirror, and a young, vulnerable me falling asleep with a bottle of something 90 proof. I couldn’t wrap my head around what had happened to me; so much of […]

So much had changed in her life, and in […]

If I could go back and tell myself what I know now, I’d be getting a mouthful. Life is scary and unpredictable, and nothing is permanent. I guess that’s what’s beautiful about life, but losing who you are and what you love is more painful than anything else. After I was sexually assaulted, everything changed (good and bad). I became stronger and I began living for myself, and doing what makes me happy, always. I […]

I will explore the world one day & that is a promise. I crave adventure. I don’t need years of college and an overpriced calculator; I need a passport and a really beautiful luggage set.

Africa (bring home an […]

Light After Darkness

I could easily start off with a string of statistics; 44% of rape victims are under the age of 18, every 2 minutes an American is sexually assaulted, and my favorite, 97% of rapists will not spend a day in jail. I could start off with a string of statistics, yes, but when you become a part of a study, it’s extremely hard to base your feelings off of a bunch of numbers that can […]
