No Filter Just me

Dishing the 411…..

Behind Instagram, Pinterest, & Facebook, it's just regular old Ash!

According to my birth certificate, I was born as Ashley Nicole Rodriguez so we will roll with that for now. I recently turned 29 in October (wah) I'm getting old. I was born into a huge family, five brothers & one sister. All were twins except my sister & I. My mom tells me she wouldn't have been able to handle 2 of me & I can honestly say I don't blame her. Lol. I sure did have my rebellious stage at once; I couldn’t picture two of me! I am a huge family person they come first before anybody! Growing up I really struggled with depression, By 7th grade, I had to get on high dosage depression medication & ended up in the hospital for attempting suicide. This is something I have never publicly discussed & is very hard for me to write about but I want people to know me & behind the pictures & how life really is. My biological father left my older brothers & me at a young age. I feel this had a significant effect on me. I was still pretty young maybe 5 or 6, but I have a good recollection of it all. My adoptive father who I call my real father took me in at eight months & adopted me by the age of 16. He’s been the best thing that ever happened to me, but I guess I was just struggling with more emotional issues. I also suffered from terrible acne which took a massive toll on me. There was days I would beg my mom to stay home from school because I was so embarrassed people would make fun of me & call me names. I will be posting a blog on what medicine saved my skin because I know how you feel if you’re out there suffering. I can definitely say I’ve had more downs in life than ups, but all in all, they have made me so much stronger & the person I am today! Fast forward to 21 years old. I had the best gift God could give me. My daughter Ashtyn Rae. Motherhood has not been easy especially when you’re doing it on your own. So if you’re a single mother out there I Salute you 100% it is not easy at all. Now enough tears for me lets skip to the best part! 2018 I finally launched my blog! Yay! I can say 2018 has been the best year of my life. Thanks to the man up above! I was in fear for years of launching because of what people think, but I can honestly say I’m at a point in my life where opinions no longer matter. People will always have good & bad to say just have to roll with the punches and do you! I am also trying to balance my full-time job, blogging, CrossFit & being a mother so It gets pretty wild & crazy sometimes. I hope you guys enjoyed this post. It was emotional for me to write! I also want you to know if you’re going through anything in life don't let it bring you down! Keep moving & Pushing. God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers! I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel! This is me the real deal 100% no edit or filter.
