Never run from a loss and don’t whine when it hurts

I’m not one to openly talk about my personal life but in all honesty the last two weeks have been incredibly hard. Leading up to today’s date is never easy but this year has been marked by even more anxiety. 

13th of October  2012 was the worst day of my life and every day since then  has been a struggle. In saying that I truly believe that God gave me this life because God knew I could handle it. I try really hard to keep it together, it isn’t easy but I also have those days when I want to stay in my pj’s all day; I’m no different to anyone else. 

 As much as I miss having my dad around, I think of his death as a blessing in disguise. After he died I grew up really quickly. I took up roles and responsibilities not many 21 year old have to deal with. I’m a lot wiser and stronger because of it. 
In the last two year I’ve learnt a lot about humanity and people in general. I travelled the world and I’ve learnt and been in contact with so many different individual who continue  surprise me every day. But one of the biggest things I’ve learnt since my dad’s death  is that everyone is fighting an internal battle. Some battles are really dark and others aren’t. They can all be overcome.  I’m living proof of that. The notion that you never know what someone is going through till you walk a mile in their shoes rings true in all cases. In this day and age I hope we don’t lose humanity and I hope that everyone reaches out to anyone in need if advice or help. There is nothing worst then struggling to cope and feeling alone.
I am incredibly lucky that I have an amazing support team behind me. Thank you to everyone who’s ever made an attempt to get in touch. My immediate support team: Jordana, Ghadeer, Daria, Bree, Rebecca and Sashka I probably flood your inbox with messages on a daily basis about my crazy thoughts and ideas but you ladies make the really hard days easy! Also Thanks the girls that make me laugh: Adriana, Alex, Julia Iryna, Melina, and Slavica. I wouldn’t been were I am without you all! 

One degree done!
