If you were to ask me who I was 4 years ago, I wouldn't have a clue what to tell you. And even though I'm still not entirely sure who I am today, I can tell you I am well on my way.
I lived the first 22 years of my life in a bitter, closed-off, and stubborn state. I let all that I had been through affect me too much and destroyed a lot of good things I had. It caused me to make hasty, no-good decisions and I fell off the track for a long time.
These days are different. I'm no longer bitter about my past, I've learned how to forgive, and I've managed to find ways to prosper, even in the darkest of times. I've also learned what it takes to be happy; a shift in thinking. Bad things happen but you cannot let them limit you. I've also found that, for me, happiness lies in the service of others. I am happiest when I know I am helping better someone else's life. Seeing them smile and seeing that their life has forever changed in a positive way is the most rewarding of feelings.
So who am I? I'm a 24-year-old girl from Buffalo, NY who now lives in California. I'm a Daughter. I'm a Sister. I'm a Fiance. I'm an Aunt. I'm a lover. I'm a model. I'm a writer. I'm a Crowdriser.
I ♥ acoustic sets w/my favorite musicians, alphabetizing, basketball, blogging, bubble baths, candid photos, candles, christmas, cooking, dresses, Duke, glitter, good food, high heels, inspiring others, laughing until it hurts, true friends, vacations, and winter wonderlands.
You life is yours. Take control of it! Being happy and staying positive are everyday choices. And some days are harder than others. But, I'm living proof that it's possible! Change your thoughts, Change your life.
