Rise Above

Everyone encounters hate at least once in their lives. Learning to overcome it and emerging from other side with a thicker skin is imperative to becoming stronger and developing character. Like growing callouses on your hands to protect them from harm, the emotional and spiritual core of you must do the same. 


Rising up from the ashes of condemnation

She emerged stronger, more resilient

The shadow of her determination

Eclipsing those who held her back

The winds of change were never more refreshing

The destruction of their hate never tasted sweeter

I've suffered from depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem for many years. When my son was diagnosed with Autism, my depression took a turn for the worse. At the age of 39, I've opened up a new lease on life by learning to love myself and finding positive ways to cope with life's difficulties through blogging, fitness, photography, writing, and the arts. This is just one personal journey of healing and finding oneself.
