Pres falls asleep on my chest every night. It’s little moments like that and giving him little kisses that make everything worth it. There are bad days with lots of frustration and stress, but they make the good days so much better. I love my little family and I love my son more than anything in the world. A few years from now none of these problems will matter or even be remembered. Looking forward to the future. Life is good. #family
❝I want to be someone who is willing to forgive. I want to be someone who cares more about others than themselves. I want to be someone who can tell it like it is. I want to be someone who would give up everything for the right reason. I want to be someone who sees the best in everyone. I want to be someone who is a true friend. I want to be someone who always tries to be a better person. And someone who learns from their mistakes. I guess I just want to be someone who encompasses all those things so I can finally be that girl who doesn’t need a boy to be happy, because I’ll know how to dance all on my own.

❝Transformation isn’t easy. It isn’t pretty. Ever watch a bird hatch? It’s fucking exhausting. You don’t ascend from that lowest place of your life in a tidy straight line, moving a few inches upward every day. No, it’s a messy and jerky and unpredictable trajectory. But it is a trajectory. And the general direction - from the moment of your decision forward - is always going to be UP. Up and out. You will shed whatever and whomever you need to shed. You will find whatever and whomever you need to find. You will crawl and bawl. Until eventually you are standing, finally, on your own two feet in your own shower of light. Until you are the person you never would have been, had you never met your own worst darkness face-to-face. And that is the gift that ruin offers us.
