Embracing Gratitude: Priorities for My Focus Ahead

Returning to this space to write feels like a breath of fresh air amidst a heavy fog of recent struggles. Lately, I've found myself caught in a downward spiral, grappling with disappointments and setbacks that seem to loom over me like a dark cloud. The world's descent into chaos due to the pandemic, the cancellation of my long-awaited April wedding, the dashed hopes of a trip to Paris, the end of a relationship—each blow threatened to push me to the brink. Yet, instead of succumbing to despair, I've resolved to shift my focus towards gratitude.

Amidst the turmoil, there are glimmers of light that pierce through the darkness. For one, I've embarked on a new chapter by making the leap to Florida. The East Coast beckoned, and I answered, reveling in the freedom to stroll under the sun-drenched skies, savoring moments at the park with my dogs, and relishing the proximity to the beach—a mere stone's throw away. Here, I've discovered newfound time to cherish with my son, liberated from the relentless grind to make ends meet. And let's not forget the joy of shedding layers and embracing the warmth, a welcome change from the chill of Colorado.

Another triumph worth celebrating: the proud ownership of a brand-new car—a symbol of independence and self-reliance. No longer dependent on the assistance of others, I've forged a path of resilience and determination. It's a testament to the strength I've cultivated within myself, a reminder that I'm capable of achieving greatness, even in the face of self-doubt.

On the professional front, opportunities abound. Florida's perpetual sunshine proves to be a boon for modeling gigs, offering a stark contrast to the challenges of shooting in Colorado's wintry climes. While I cherish the memories and friendships forged in the Rockies, I embrace this new chapter with open arms, grateful for the growth and opportunities it brings.

But amidst the victories and triumphs, it's the unwavering support of cherished friends that shines brightest. Through every twist and turn, they've remained steadfast by my side, a beacon of light in the darkest of times. Their presence reminds me that I'm not alone in this journey, that together, we can weather any storm.

To those who have followed my journey, I extend my deepest gratitude. Your unwavering support gives meaning to my endeavors, fueling my desire to inspire and uplift others. Though my path has been riddled with obstacles, I refuse to surrender to despair. Instead, I'll continue to forge ahead, sharing my story in the hopes of empowering others to find their voice and seek solace in shared experiences.

And to anyone who may be grappling with their own struggles, I offer these words of encouragement: You are enough, just as you are. In moments of doubt, look within and find the strength to persevere. Though the road may be arduous, know that every challenge you overcome leaves an indelible mark, a testament to your resilience and fortitude. Never underestimate your worth, for you possess the power to shape your destiny and leave an enduring legacy on this world.

Until we meet again, may you be blessed with strength and courage on your journey.

With love and gratitude,

Kandie Angel
