Victorious

The first necklace I made for myself last year, which I still wear almost everyday is stamped with the word VICTORIOUS on it. At first when I made it and wore it around for months, I don’t think I knew deep down what it truly meant to be victorious. Don’t get me wrong, I felt victorious on most days as someone who survived childhood trauma, depression + suicide attempts, multiple near death situations, autoimmune disease, mold + breast implant illness, and all of the other 5 million crazy things life threw at me BUT I was still struggling with defeat, fear, and anxiety more than ever, even AFTER witnessing countless miracles and seeing God’s mighty hand move in my life.No...

Prayers of an 8 year old

My Health & Wellness Story

I suffered from childhood trauma starting from an early age of 9. I had experienced the death of a close family member and I was constantly bullied at school. By the age of 12, I was so deeply hurt that I turned to cigarettes and alcohol. I became heavily addicted to these substances along with fast food, junk food, instant food, soda, energy drinks, milkshakes, and sweets. I struggled with extreme self-esteem and self-hatred issues.  I was depressed and suicidal. In 2011, I decided to get breast implants thinking they were going to solve all of my problems and that I was finally going to be comfortable in my own skin. Little did I know, the root of the problem...
