But what if I told you, I found so much freedom in forgiveness. It didn’t just happen one day, there was a lot of faith searching that I had to do before I got to a place where I was completely broken and the only way to free myself of that burden was to forgive that person.

    Forgiveness is Freedom

    For the longest time I had a hard time with forgiveness. My heart was filled with so much bitterness toward my ex husband and his girlfriend.

I forgave him for all the hurt he put me through. I don’t want to say as soon as I did,…

But when you have fallen apart at rock bottom, that’s when you take those pieces and piece yourself back together. Like re-programming yourself to work differently. Does that make sense? “Sometimes you need to hit rock bottom in order to self-reflect and rebuild yourself. Hitting rock bottom is a wake-up call that something you’re doing in your life is not good for you. It’s a sign that you need to stop, breathe and make some serious…

    My Life Currently | #LateNightThoughts

    I would like to think, I have my life together right now. But that would be a lie, not only to myself but those around me. I like to pretend I have everything together, but that’s also a lie. Life is just happening around me and I am stuck. Not sure exactly what I’m stuck at or doing, but I am not moving forward nor moving backwards. I am just at a standstill watching life past me by. These are the thoughts I have in the wee hours, so what better to make these #LateNightThoughts.
