I opened my eyes and took a breath this morning at 3:30 am. I pray that I have this kind of energy next year and the same amount of coffee!
I feel that birthdays are also moments to reflect on what has passed and what’s to come but more so, to bask in what is: the joy that is today.
I am counting my blessings: my family and friends and a business that allows me to do what I LOVE every day.
July is the month of the butterfly -no coincidence that my name Vanessa, also means butterfly.
My life has been a metamorphosis and this last year has really been a pivotal one for me. I’ve really stepped into the woman I am.
I am truer to myself than I’ve ever been. I pray for the strength and courage to continue to serve and to continue to find beauty in everything.
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
