The highlight of our lives is rarely captured in a still photograph. The moments seen in videos tell only part of our stories.
Who am I?
If you follow me on social media, you may know a few things about me: I am an aesthetician, laser-tech, and clinical trainer (turned Celebrity Esthetician) launching a skincare line.
How did I get here?
Putting my best face forward in posts for the world to see, was no match for the mirror and the stranger I saw staring back at me in contempt.
My hair was thinning. I had cystic acne contouring my jawline. I fretted over my mustache and melasma nearly every second... until my thoughts gave way to obsessing over the fifty extra pounds weighing my body down.
I turned to long showers to temper my bouts of depression, but most times I would sit and cry for hours. The truth is that I felt ugly.
In my lowest of lows, I prayed harder than I ever had, until the day came when I realized that the power was within me and my body to change my life.
Can you relate?
For those of you who can—I invite you on this tour of my healing journey.
