Favorite Photo of 2017

I love this weekly photo challenge, as it makes me reflect on how far I’ve come in a year. This is by far my favorite photo of 2017. It was taken on January 1st, the first day following a year of turmoil in my life. I’d loss my Mother, Grandmother, Aunt and Uncle in a matter of eight months of 2016, making it hard for me to smile, laugh, venture out, or appreciate life that year. On this day I gave myself permission to start the path to healing. It began with a trip to the beach with some wonderful friends to enjoy lunch, great conversation, drinks, and shopping. The emotions of that day lead to this moment right here. It was quite liberating!

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
