So, What Has Been Going on with Me?

Hello, readers! Most of you know by now that I published my debut novel, so I won’t get too much into that, but I want to update you guys on how my little family and I are doing!

I’ve made a lot of changes to my life recently. I am not performing right now, for one thing. Don’t get me wrong, the stage will always be one of my favorite places in the world! I have a passion for performing that will never go away, but right now, my husband and I (with God) have decided that it is best for my mental health to step back for a while. I will be on stage again someday, but it will be because I want to.

Sometimes it’s hard for me to figure out who I am beyond a singer, actress, and dancer. Do I have value beyond that? Can I do anything else? I know we all have value and are children of God, but I’ve been really struggling with that. I think He wants me to learn who I am to my core and figure out a way in the future to use my talents not only for him, but because it makes me happy.

I’ve always had a hard time taking care of my needs. I’m one of those people who feels so deeply for the people around me and sometimes I ignore what is happening to myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. I need this time to be at home with my child, maybe keep writing some books, and come closer to my Heavenly Father while also learning to love and take care of myself.

I feel emotions very strongly– I’m very passionate. And sometimes it can be overwhelming. I am grateful for the rock my husband is and for the incredible bond I have with my daughter.

Anyway, I know you guys love pictures, so here are some recent pictures!!!

I hope that put some smiles on your faces!! 😍😍😍

Thank you for reading!
