It’s all in the way you look at things.

I try to focus on the positives in my story. I don’t think it’s good to go through your life looking at only certain people as having everything. I try to say I have had a lot of cool opportunities come my way. I see the people who gave me the opportunities I’ve had to be special people but my blessings to have come from God. I know everyone believes a little different but I have really had some cool opportunities come my way after my 30th birthday and I feel really blessed to have grown comfortable being myself from the shy awkward girl I was when I was 10 or 11 years old. I’ve come a long way and I want to honor my story in the way I tell it. I was a cute little girl. I have always been pleasant and friendly. My 30s are going really well. I feel better about myself than I ever have. I know God is always there and that He knows me and loves me. I don’t have feelings of anger toward anyone. I just feel so free to be myself. I know some of the things that I would have thought would gain power over me or caused me to have conflicts don’t anymore.
