Venice Beach, California.

2019 started off rough for me. I found myself crying for days, missing work, and feeling like I had no reason to go on with life. I would have to say this was one of my darkest times yet. I couldn’t find the light at the end of the tunnel as the days kept passing by. Everyday seemed to get worse. Sleep wouldn’t even help me escape my thoughts. My dreams were suicide. They still are…

While I was dwelling on the past and feeling sorry for myself, I needed to get away from everything. I needed to cleanse my mind, body, & soul, so I spontaneously booked a trip to L.A three weeks ago.

Over this past weekend,Β  I spent all day and night at the beach. I got to watch the sunset each evening over the Pacific Ocean in 70 degree weather. This was my third time in the Los Angeles/Venice/Malibu area, so I knew there would be no better place for a weekend vacation.

I’m sharing all my photos from my quick vacation, but I just wanted to note that most of these photos DO NOT have a filter on them. I’ve enhanced some a bit, but they’re basically THAT beautiful.

This trip was a reminder that my life isn’t over and I’m super thankful for everything I have. I was able to just get up and go, per usual, meanwhile many others don’t have that advantage.

Forever Grateful.

  1. I’m so glad you took this trip. Sometimes when we are in a scary, dark place- just getting away and changing our scenery can be incredibly helpful. This trip shows how strong you are because you chose to try to conquer your suicidal thoughts. Please continue fighting and reach out for help when you need it!!!!!!

We just have to detox and get away from our normal lives sometimes. Venice Beach looks beautiful and would definitely be one of the places I visit should I take a trip to Cali!
