I was reading an article this morning titled “What is it like to survive a suicide attempt?” In this reading I discovered one response that spoke volumes. He replied with “My last thought before i jumped was, ‘If I do this, no one will know I really didn’t want to die’.” Just think on that. Many people who struggle with suicidal thoughts feel like they are alone. You would be surprised at how much the bible talks about suicide. There are many examples of those who took their life and many reminders of hope throughout the scripture. God can turn any life around for glory and joy. There is supernatural strength and healing when you claim the power of God and gain support to fight on. Life can get overbearing sometimes but let me tell you this, God would never put you through an obstacle you couldn’t conquer! Your life is so important! And if you notice a friend losing interest in being here, reach out to them with open arms reminding them the love you have for them. Just listening to someone will ease the pain of their suffering tremendously. Listen, if you or a loved one are struggling with this battle, please reach out to someone. Do not face this on your own. There is hope and healing and there are many who will journey through this trial with you. Call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) at any time, day or night. Remember, YOU are worth more than gold and the world needs you, no matter who you are. We are always here for you.
In 2018, I cheered at my last football game, I went to my last prom (Thank you @lastingimpressionsformalwear for my outfit!), I graduated from high school, I started college and I got the chance of a lifetime to be your Miss Mississippi Teen USA 2019. Along with my title came alot of opportunities that make my heart so happy! When I won, not only did I get the shiny hat but I also gained so many people who never fail to encourage me to be my best self. In this amazing year I met my sweet @madeleineoverby who became my Missy Sissy!! I also fell into the arms of @usakimig and the rest of the amazing @greenwoodproductions family! I traveled to Texas to meet with THE @sherrihill and @lastingimpressionsformalwear 🤩 to pick out my dream gown which I will be wearing at Miss Teen USA!! How exciting!! I’ve met with so many sweet sponsors who support me in everything I do. In this year I experienced a lot of “last” and closed a big chapter of my life. But I also opened an even bigger chapter and I get 10 more months of this dream!! 2019, I’m so ready for you and all the memories you will hold!
Christmas was yesterday but its not really over till New Years, right? I hope you all had the best time celebrating the birth of our Savior! I am so thankful and blessed for all of the opportunities he has thrown my way! I have a feeling 2019 is going to be a special year! 😉✨💋 #MissMsTeenUSA#MissTeenUSA#ConfidentlyBeautiful
