Saved My Life
This tattoo means more to me that I can even put into words. It's one of the last pieces to complete my sleeve. As many of you know, this is Kedo. The first dog Chad and I got together. He was our baby and having to put him down at 15 years old during Covid in our home was the one of hardest things we've ever had to do. The heartbreak is unbearable as many of us have experienced. They are our family. He lived an adventurous happy long life. With everything our family went through in 2020 to end with having to put him down was the final straw for me. There is only so much someone can take until they need help to get themselves back on track. No matter how heartbreaking, frustrating, or complicated a situation can be there is always a reason for why things happen. You may not realize it at that exact moment, but God really does have a plan for all of us. I'm not sure about you, but my plan wasn't working out too well for me. My life was becoming unmanageable along with depression and anxiety taking over daily. I didn't know how to cope with it and unfortunately, I turned to alcohol.
As for so many of us, 2020 will be known as one of the hardest years of our lives. The repercussions could be even worse for some of us. If you are struggling please know you're not alone and there is hope. When the cobwebs clear you will see the life you were meant to live. It's not going to be easy, but please know it will be well worth it. I'm in my 18 month of sobriety and could not be more humble, grateful and thankful for my life. We have one life on this planet and you deserve to be living it!
I'm working throughout the Community and see everyone who is struggling. It is so incredibly heartbreaking to witness and I want to help in any way I can. I know how it feels to be where some of you may be at this very moment. It
