Here is my first quote for the day:
She picked up the pieces of her life and created something beautiful. From that day forth, she shone like the sun and changed the definition of broken. -Unknown
I found this quote online a couple months back and I fell in love with it. I actually want to tattoo this on myself, that’s how much it resonates with me. Over the years I have seen a lot of hardship. I’ve seen and endured cases of abuse, physical and emotional. I’ve seen and experienced anguish, loneliness and hopelessness. Despite all of this, I continued to believe that one day things will get better. There would be some sort of escape from the bad into a world of happiness and forgiveness. I knew that God would allow me to stop feeling so low and I would stop seeing loved ones also feeling depressed and bettering themselves.
With God’s help and my determination, my life has been blessed. I have forgiven people and events in my past. I have worked tirelessly on myself to not be so afraid of this world. I try new things. I say what I think, and how I feel, instead of bottling it all up. I know that I am a great mother and wife. I strive to make my family happy while also making sure that I am happy in the process. Instead of being bitter and angry, I decide to see the beauty in things and the good in people.
I’ve picked up the broken pieces of my life and I shine because I’m happy. I have a beautiful family and great friends. Despite my anxiety, I am still able to push my self to be better and stronger. This is what the quote means to me :).
My 3 nominees are:
I look forward to reading everyone’s quotes!
