Today I am emotional…Though I am happy and so very grateful I have a lot of emotions stirring from 2018.

September 25th, 2018 I would prepare myself for the hardest day of my life. Knowing the next day I would give birth to my third blessing and not knowing if I would make it through scared me.

Though I would survive and live to share my journey it took a lot of healing to get here.

Having a hysterectomy at 28 was something I just wasn’t prepared for. I would suffer from PTSD due to birth trauma.

I share my story because I want to help others. I want to let you know that it’s okay. I want you to know that what you go through you’ll grow through and that talking about it will help so I begin to say;

Dear mama,
It’s okay to not be okay. Your body has been through one of the most beautiful obstacles, growing life. You may not look how you used to, and you may not feel like you used to, and that’s okay because you are not who you used to be anymore.

You need to remember that each day is a stepping stone and that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Take a deep breath, exhale any expectations, and do the best that you can today.❤️

Dear friend,
I know you haven’t felt your best lately and that’s okay. You have a lot on your plate and you do not know how to deal with it all. Just know, you are not alone, we have all been there. Call me and let me know how you’re doing, really how are you doing?

Let me help you through whatever it is that keeps you up at night. Let the tears roll down your face, let it all out. Don’t put on a happy face in fear of being judged, it’s okay to ask for help.❤️

Always remember, that it’s okay to not be okay.❤️
