I decided to review my Top 9 Instagram posts a bit earlier than last year as a moment of self-reflection. 2018 has been quite hard, bittersweet, but overall really magical. On the down side: I have been fighting to overcome my health struggles since last November. And spent most of the year trying to regain any semblance of sanity not just battling my own anxieties, but regaining the ability to become a little more daring when it comes to food in particular. (I was limited to eating just pudding for nearly 4 months alone because of stomach issues. Not my choice. But, just as reference for how hard the struggle has been.) And I spent a lot of time in and out of hospital rooms, etc. But, on the up side: I have been rediscovering my passions. Regaining control over my health. And I found a lot of support through my art and writing this year. I have had many of my books trending on the Wattpad hot list. I have had my poetry not only featured on a prestigious blog, but in numerous social media posts & captions on both Instagram and Twitter. One of my poems in particular, "YOU DESERVE LOVE" was published in a Finnish Gay Novel by controversial author, Harald Olausen called "Homolulu: gaynovelleja". I have also received incredibly touching messages from fans who have used my poem as a catalyst for coming out to their families & loved ones. To hear that my words have given people strength, in a time when I felt I had so little, is really enriching and life changing. My classical song, "Poseidon's Daughter" was recently featured in a beautiful hoop routine by a new friend, and fellow grammer @rapunzelstilzchen
Words really seem to fall short in telling you all how appreciative I am. 15.7K likes is phenomenal! I hope to continue learning, growing, and creating with you all in 2019!
