I was testing out my ring light the other day and took this pic. I thought “gosh, how awful”. My bags. My dark circles. I look exhausted. I would never post this. But then I thought about what all that face shows.

It’s been one hell of a year. It’s been a complete ROLLER COASTER!! I’m sure EVERYONE can agree. Some good and some not so good (we won’t say bad).

I’ve worked my butt off being a Mom, trying my best to be a middle and high school teacher (epic fail), working a full time job, running my marketing business, being a writer/editor, operations manager, virtual assistant, and so much more.

I’ve spent many nights not sleeping. I’ve been hard as hell on myself. I’ve wanted to walk away from everything more times than not. I’ve cried more times that I care to admit (today alone). I’ve spent days waiting for applauds when there were none. “It’s what’s expected of you because you’re a mom. You’re a woman. You’re supposed to be STRONG.”

Well at the end of the day, I know I’m strong. I’ve conquered it all even with the hurdles. This picture states I’m not ashamed to show myself at my best and at my worst because I’m human. I’m more than happy with who I’ve become and I love myself!
