I can't believe it's been almost 7 months since I last set foot in the newsroom at WCNC. I never imagined when I left on March 15th it would be this long before I got the opportunity to come back.

I always try to see the positive in everything & while I have certainly missed what my life was like before 2020 happened, I am grateful I was forced to slow down and reflect on who I am, who I want to be & how to get there. The chapters of our lives are constantly being written each and every day, and I hope this year has shown you how important it is to push through and make sure what you're writing is what YOU want it to be. We are sometimes so focused on the destination that we forget it is about the journey, but that my friend is where all the magic happens. Although this year has been trying for everyone in many different ways, tonight has made me hopeful that we are almost done with this chapter that has made 2020 a whirlwind and that we can all finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I have always believed in practicing gratitude & taking a moment to stop and look around at what you have and truly being thankful for it - even if it's not exactly where you want to be because you will get there. I've also always been amazed at how people have so much trouble letting others know how they feel, especially while they're still here in this world with us. I hope this year has taught you to speak up and be bold. As much as we like to think we are invincible, we aren't. And as I've said many times before - take the trip, eat the cupcake, life's short & you only get so many trips around the sun. Enjoy it!

So, while this is an appreciation post of being back for my first show in far too long, I also wanted to share these words that were on my heart and came to the surface even more so after my first live show in quite some time.
