Exactly one year ago today Ross & I were almost killed by a drunk driver. This is a milestone that I want to celebrate, and finally put behind me, having learnt three very important lessons during my recovery.
One: Be grateful for your body. Nurture it. Treat it with love and care. For real. Body positivity is something I’ve always struggled with but this experience forced me to appreciate my body for its strength and healing ability rather than for how it looks. Breaking three bones and puncturing my lung taught me that. Learn to appreciate your legs, your mind, your ability to walk and exercise and breathe and heal. 
Two: Life is short and it isn’t guaranteed. It’s dangerous out there and we’re all really lucky to be alive. It’s something that can change in an instant, so soak up every second. I like to think that if you’re still alive, against all the odds, then you’re probably meant to be here. You have a purpose. So tell that to yourself every morning and let it carry you throughout the day. 
Three: Know that you are loved, and that you are cared for. This experience reminded me that our support systems reach so much further than we think. Make sure that the people you love know how much you love them. Love is what it’s all about at the end of the day. 
I’m thankful everyday for my guardian angels - for my family and for all the people who’ve turned into family along the way, and for my boo for literally being my arms and legs when I got out of hospital and taking such good care of me always. So here’s to new perspectives and healing and self-love and turning twenty (and never driving drunk). ❤️

This is me taking my art seriously enough to start posting it. I have a really long way to go before I get to where I want to be, but I'm hoping that this is a step towards overcoming my self-doubt, and that 2018 will be a year filled with creativity and courage and growth. 😌✨
