I remember wearing this dress this time last year. I remember feeling like I was on top of the world. I was looking good, feeling good & ready for whatever the world threw at me...or so I thought. Two weeks later the pandemic hit and so did lockdown. Turns out I wasn’t ready at all for what was to come.
When I think about ALL that I went through in the last year...I mean there aren’t enough words to truly describe it. Like many I was directly affected by the pandemic. I found myself unemployed, denied of unemployment, trying to launch a business and keep my sanity all at the same time. The details of my last year are like something you read in a book. You never expect all of those things to happen to you, for it to be your actual life. I continue to praise God because I survived. I survived.
I’m definitely not that same Tamra from last year. This dress is hugging a little tighter than it used to but it’s all part of the journey. In the last three months I’ve experienced a complete 180. I’ve found myself again & I’m seeing different. God has really shown out. I’m still on a journey to become my best self & I’m thankful for those of you who have chosen to stick around for it.
