2018 had some high highs and low lows, but mostly it’s the year that I found some peace of mind and health again.
I have spent so many years treating and coping with the depression that has plagued me for more than a decade, and this is the year that I finally walked into a MEDICAL doctor’s office to find some relief. It was the single most humbling thing to be honest and say that what I was doing wasn’t actually working and I needed some help. I walked in, tired and weary from all the things that I had tried but epically failed at, and I walked out a new woman, full of hope and relief and resolve, and I haven’t looked back since.
This was the year I became painfully honest and excruciatingly real about myself and my issues.
And ironically, this is also the year that I healed.
I realize now that pride is sometimes the biggest thing that stands between us and our healing, and I am ashamed to say it took me that long, but I am thankful. So thankful that I have found the grace to be honest and to get better.
This was one of the biggest lessons that 2018 taught me, and I am so thankful. Thankful for the healing that comes in all forms of medicine and the wisdom in those that practice it.
But most of all, I’m thankful that God loves and heals us in so many infinite ways. We just need to be humble enough to receive it.
Health and blessings to you all in this new year! Never stop seeking the answers you need! You are worth it.
