This weekend I got to celebrate the birth of a beautiful baby boy with my dear friends. Here he is, in a city of 8.4 million people, surrounded by love. We were asked at his baby shower to share a piece of advice that would later be given to him. My wish for him is that he always knows how much he is loved and always feels he is worthy of it because I know that as we get older and as we gain life experience we might forget those very things we are born with.
Social media paints a picture of how wonderful and perfect everything is all the time. It has become a place to put our best foot forward and celebrate winning at life. It can be easy to think that the grass might be greener on the other side, but I promise you everyone has a story and striving for perfection is an unrealistic expectation. Now you might be thinking to yourself, "What does this girl know about struggling and rock bottom?" Well, I want to start by telling you about my rock bottom.
