I’m going to try and do a new series on my blog called monthly wrap-ups. I figured it’s a good way to get to know me and what’s been going on in my life. I also want to talk about all the things that I’ve been loving each month.

For the past three years, I’ve been on the bumpiest journey of my life ever since I revealed that I was sexually abused throughout my childhood. This past year in particular has been the biggest test of my strength, especially with all the added stress of my parent’s divorce and my dad’s alcoholism on top of my poor mental health.

But I’ve grown so much in the past year, and I’m so proud of the person I’m becoming. I sincerely mean that with every fiber of my being. I am becoming the person I want to be.
