Hey Lovelies! I can’t believe it’s already September (my birthday month). I have a feeling it’s going to be a great month.
Today I am getting personal on the blog. As you can see the second half of August there were no blog posts. From the moment I knew I wouldn’t be able to post the way I wanted to I struggled with the decision to be personal or keep my life private. But this is called The Brandi Michelle Experience for a reason.
For the past year I made horrible choices. Choices that I didn’t think would affect my life the way they did. To make a long story short I was homeless, hopping from hotel to hotel as I also juggled school and work. I hit rock bottom and had to make the choice to move back to Orlando, a choice I should have made long ago.
Some of you know that I have battled with depression and most recently anxiety and since I’ve been back home they’ve come back full throttle. I can’t help but wish and hope I could go back in time and change things. It’s a mix of ‘I should have known better’ and ‘everything happens for a reason’ because not everything was in my control.
But recently something in me shifted. I can honestly say I haven’t felt the same since the eclipse. I’ve also visited Charleston and realized that I am in control of my life and can always turn it around. I’ve been given the opportunity to start fresh, something that doesn’t come so easy for some people.
Peace and Love
