Throwback to Victorias first Christmas
Coming across this photo as I unpack the Christmas decor brings up so many mixed emotions. Taken just 2 weeks after I made the toughest decision of my life, leaving her father (may he Rest In Peace ), it was the hardest, scariest, darkest time to date.
Being a stay-at-home mom at 24, no job, no money, no more fiancé, I had no idea how I was going to deal with raising a child, alone.
I could have allowed my circumstances to defeat me, to bring me down. But that would have moved me further away from where I wanted to be in my life. We all find ourselves in unpleasant situations, we all have obstacles to overcome. Try changing the way you react and deal with those situations and you'll be surprised how quickly your life changes.
7 years later, I'm damn proud of my past, the woman I'm becoming, and the numerous obstacles I've overcame along the way. I pray he's proud of the little girl I'm raising, because she too, will have to overcome obstacles to find out what she really wants is worth fighting for #momlife #leadbyexample #raisingstronggirls
