    “Despite what your feelings may be telling you, the pain you’re experiencing may be a chapter in your life, but it will not be all there is to your life. Don’t let your thoughts confuse a chapter with the whole book.” – Brittney Moses   I decided to write a different piece for Abundance of Abby. I had so many different people send in stories and it was amazing to read all of their own perspectives. At one point, I had to stop taking everyones and save them for another day and post!! I hope this blog post touches you as you read it, the same way it did for…
