//PART 2// so i wrote a song for the tci graduation. it originally started as a therapeutic way of me processing my life in 2018 - present, but then thanks to @janayevans (; it became the song i would end up performing. there are a couple of lines in the song that i wanna share with y'all + it goes like this: you're the reason I hold on you're the reason I stand tall nothing else matters when i'm in your presence surrounded by love, overwhelmed in mercy you took this broken heart and this broken soul and restored it piece by piece oh that's how much you love me ____ i always want a meaning behind every photo or video i post. it matters to me that it does. however, the reason behind this photo was solely for the purpose of showing off my new haircut, but in reality i spent the whole week being sad. i barely got out of bed, talked to people and ate anything. and i won't go into the reason why i was sad in the first place. but hey, on this day (2 days ago ) i decided to make a change. i did my makeup and had a little photoshoot just for myself. i saw it as a way of getting my groove back and moving on with life. truthfully it helped but then i realized it doesn't matter how much makeup you put on, how many selfies/photos you take....because it's simply not going to fix or change anything. these lyrics were a reminder that it is because of His love, grace and compassion...it's because of Him that i keep on going + i'll keep on holding on. and i can't say i'm not sad anymore, pretend that my life is perfect but there is beauty in all of this. because i know that 7 months ago i would've dealt with this in a complete unhealthy way, and this time i get to be different, react different, and be able to say "hey, i'm not okay. i'm hurting + i'm broken but i'm still going. i am not alone" and that is beauty to me.
never forget boujee @sherrimwangaza 💰

Let me be cheesy for a sec. I am so honored to have such beautiful, inspiring women around me that encourage, believe and love me like no other in a daily basis. They may not be in this particular photo but it is thanks to them that I've been able to become confident in my identity in Jesus. Who I am. How I was made. And what my purpose + calling is in life. Thank you - @mdpinango , @janayevans , @beccajud , @sarahseibs , @xcandyce , @ashlizlopez + grandma. Happy international women's day ❤
