Don't let life have it's way with you.

If we let it, life can take us for a spin. While we're in the center of that tornado we can't even imagine that we'll ever escape. Tossing us around like a ragdoll.While I found myself lost in that place, this video was one of the many things that gave me courage to rise and fight back. Kandee Johnson reminded me so much of the person I once was and the person I wanted to become again.
There are so many hurting people out there and my heart breaks for you because although no one else may understand, your pain is real. I'm hear to tell you, this moment of pain will make you stronger, wiser, more compassionate, and more importantly, you'll be able to help someone else going through the same thing, how else can someone comfort another without ever being in their shoes? If you're at a point in your life that your joy has flown away from you and deserted you, I ask you to watch this and perhaps a bit of joy, encouragement, and motivation will jump right back in and encourage you to LIVE!


  1. i have been in low places. because of this i have been able to help others in low places.

    i feel as though my trials have become my blessings.


  2. i came here just as i'd been dealt another blow and realised that for the last month i'd stopped picking myself up again. Thank you for this post and sharing Kandee's video. Maybe i'll follow my dream and become a pirate ...or maybe i'll design little knitted accessories instead :D

  6. I am so glad you guys enjoyed Kandee's video as much as I have. If you're finding yourself in a really hard place, know this will only make you stronger, and perhaps one day you'll find yourself in Kandee's role encouraging other to follow their dreams no matter what :D
