The pic on the left was Tuesday morning... . The pic on the right was Saturday morning... . I had no idea the life changing events that would happen during the time in between these pics... . Gut-punching news Tuesday around lunch...after a morning that was pretty stressful at work... . Couldn't fight back the tears when I came home that night... . Managed to get up, push play, and head to work the next day... . And the next... . Feeling pretty numb about things but pulling myself together each day as to act if nothing was wrong... . Then if I thought my world was shaken Tuesday... . On Friday I experienced a massive earthquake that literally shook me and everyone around me to the core... . The old me would've buckled under these circumstances... . But because God has been preparing me for this by putting the right people and opportunities in my life to help make me strong enough to handle the situations... . I've managed to push through each day... . Feeling a little stronger each day after than I did the day before... . And while I still don't always handle things flawlessly... . I am learning to deal with them in much healthier ways... . And because I can now see the collateral beauty in things... . I will continue to push on... . Helping as many others as I can along the way... . So here's proof that if you show up daily... . And put forth the effort... . It won't necessarily be easy...but it'll be worth it! πŸ’ž . Hence the last pic (taken today)... . Where I'm looking as though life is all rainbows 🌈 and unicorns πŸ¦„ and I've been kicking a** and taking names all week and ready to do it all again!!!!πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ€£... . When really...it was only by the grace of God...that I even made it through this week...which has truly been one of my toughest thus far!!! ❀️❀️❀️ .
