Hey guys, I know it’s been a few weeks since my last blog. In fact, I know that I’ve been posting increasingly less on here.
With 2017 quickly coming to an end, I wanted to take a moment to reminisce. It’s been a crazy year between my book, Dear You, being published to having my editor wanting to put my next book through production all while working on book number three. With all of this I am going to be doing a blog tour and was also invited to write for Society Rebel.
My personal life was spinning. My sister graduated from college and my baby bro turned the golden age of 21. I myself swam through a few mental storms. My crazy dreams invited a kind stranger into my mind, which threw me for a loop. Trying to ignore this didn’t work, so after taking in a lot of advice I wrote a blog about it and sent it to that kind stranger, for which I don’t regret, but do apologize to him for. I shouldn’t have and I am truly sorry I sent that to him. However, I did help me in a way, so there was a silver lining that came from that insanity. If you read this, you know who you are, am so sorry.
With all of that my ex tried to get in contact with me. Which, didn’t get to me like it did the last time, I think I have truly healed from that relationship and no longer allow it to keep me broken. What happened happened and what’s done is done. Moving forward.
I managed to defeat a few past demons and even managed to find a level of hidden strength so that I could go from treading the storm to actually swimming in it. No clear sunrise yet, but I’m going to keep going.
Some fun was even had in between all the beautiful chaos. I got tattoo #3, a promise to my mom and myself to never give up. Carpe Vestri Somnia guys, seize your nightmares. My most memorable night was Nov. 17th aka Fall Out Boy concert at the forum! I rocked my little punk heart out to the point of losing my voice. The signs of one hell of a concert. In a week I’ll be leaving on holiday for a couple of weeks. I do love this time of year.
2017 has been a wild ride, I’ve let go of people that we’re toxic and have met some amazing people that are just beautiful. I truly hope you all had an amazing 2017 and that 2018 brings you memorable sparks.
Love, Derra xo.
“Look, I didn’t power through the struggle Just to let a little trouble, knock me out of my position And interrupt the vision After everything I witnessed, after all of these decisions All these miles, feet, inches They can’t add up to the distance That I have been through, just to get to A place where even if there’s no closure, I’m still safe…” -MGK
