I will say that my everyday style is definately based on my mood. However I am feeling I tend to dress myself accordingly. I have a unique sense of fashion being a very creative young woman. I love to be different and courageous when it comes to my style. Something you would'nt dare to wear I would ROCK! I am a writer and musician so anything I wear brings me to the center stage! The last thing I bought for a friend... Groceries! If I am in a place where I can give I definately give!
My outlook on life is very optimistic. I can take any situation and turn it from a thorn into a rose. I feel that you only have one life and you might as well make the best of it in any given situation or struggle. Through all the darkness you endevour in life remember there is a light at the end of every tunnel you just have to be willing to have faith and keep going when lost.
There are so many things I love about life. The simple things that we all take for granted tend to be the things I love most. I love being a mother and having new experiences with my daughter. Exploring the world of an 8 yr. old is definately interesting and keeps me motivated. I love the memories we make together and being a good example of how a woman should be. There are times when she has seen me fall but the most important thing in those times is when I show her how I get back up and deal with the problems I'm facing as a single mother.
I have had my own trials and tribulations through out life and one of the hardest struggles is taking care of my mother who is a parapylegic waist down. It is hard to see someone you care about so deeply deteriorate daily. For along time this tradgic change destroyed me. It took me along time to find the good in this situation. As I grow older I've realized this: Atleast my mother is still here. There are many out there who have lost there loved ones and even though my faith is and has been tested these last 22 years I see now that it has just made me a stronger person in every aspect of my life. My mother and I have a great relationship. She is filled with so much wisdom and strength. She is my role model. My mother owned a dance studio, her legs were her life and for her to be able to carry on after this tradgic accident is amazing! She never gave up! There are times when I'm sure she wanted too, she was 32 when she got paralyzed and had four children to take care of. I am 30 and couldn't imagine being put in that type of situation! I honestly don't know if I would've been able to handle that at such a young age. My mother is such a beautiful woman that I know it must of took a toll on her self-esteem on top of everything else!
I guess what it all boils down to is this; In every situation there is bad and good. For about 10 years I chose to only look at the bad. Finally, at one point in my life I learned to accept it and once I did that I was able to see the light in the situation. Life is hard, there are times when you want to just throw your hands up, stay where you comfortable and not push forward. Believe me I've been there and was lost there for many years. My advice to anyone who reads this is this... No matter what, if you stay strong and carry on you will get through anything that has been thrown your way. Stay Strong no matter what.
