I thank the higher powers that be for the abililty to create. Photography and art is beyond crucial to me. At times there are no words, and the only way to tell the story or convey a message is through a picture.
In the past, people would view my art, the darker stuff, and actually use it against me, sending it to people I love and care about. Insane, I know. I have nothing to hide. My wish was always for someone to look at something I create (regardless if it is dark or light) and be left with questions, or to come back to look a little deeper.
Always there is a message in everything an artist creates.
I have shed the past of darkness that has consumed me my whole life. I believe I got lyme disease to wake me up, to teach me more, to open my eyes even wider so I could learn how to appreciate everything.
There has been a lot of toxicity in my life.
Every once in awhile, someone will ask me about my life, my past, etc.
Most of the time it is very uneasy for them to process, because it is far too much to even begin to comprehend.
I try to remain positive and full of light.
I have learned to not let the past and negative people affect me. There is too much to be greatful and thankful for. There are too many souls in my life who fill me up with so much compassion, friendship and support.
I will remain mute in regards to the things I have unfortunately witnessed and become a victim of. There are many types of violence, I have experienced them all. Those evil doers of the past who ‘monitor’ my every move, I am no longer interested or afraid of you. I have moved on and grown. I no longer ask about, view or think about you. My life is full of so much goodness, despite my battle, that I choose to happily swim in the seas of love that surround me. You can’t hurt me anymore♥
