dustinahkuoi I'd like to share a post that @genevivalavida shared earlier today...she is such a warrior queen...and I'm posting this picture to show the duality of life...the highs and lows. This is the electric Cuban girl that so many know and love...but she contains multitudes and she is brave enough to share them. Here are her words from today...inspiring and honest.

Truth is, I've been privately battling severe depression since I got out of the hospital in October. I've been sleeping days away, sometimes unable to get out of bed. Recently I got so angry that depression seemed to be winning the war of my life that I wept and begged God to help me change my brain chemistry and my thought life. I decided to fight like hell. I decided I wasn't going to let depression happen to me, that I was going to happen to depression. It's been painful, and it's felt nearly impossible each day since I made that decision, but I can finally feel the dark cloud lifting. I wrote for the first time in months. I'm reading for the first time in months. I'm saying no to Netflix binges for the first time in months. I'm not posting this to brag, just to encourage my friends to be courageous in the face of your struggles. Choosing to fight is more than half the battle. Things will start to change before your eyes.

  •   eharrell99 I suffered in a deep dark hole for too long... Some days I had to push my way up to the top but God's Grace saved me from drowning ... Today I can still find myself slipping but I look up and My Father gives me His Hand to help me up... 2w

dustinahkuoi Last night @genevivalavida and I attended an amazing event called The Governor's Ball put on by @takestwoevents - We had no idea who was going to be there...and we went because it was connected to our work and we rarely get to go to parties where we are not the entertainment. What an awesome surprise it was was to run into some our friends...we had such a great time! #GovernorsBall2015 2w

dustinahkuoi Throwback Thursday Giveaway! Two years ago on this day I released a self titled album. There is a song on the album called "Winter's Wait" that was and still is very personal to me. Today I am giving it away as a free download. "Winter's Wait" is about living through pain or a difficult circumstance...and the barrenness and loneliness we often feel in those desolate seasons. Much like winter, much has died in us and we long for the vibrant greens of spring...the beauty of new life emerging. Happiness, peace and joy seem far away and the pain of these experiences can deplete us of hope. If you have or are going through a dark or sad time...I encourage you to download or just listen to this song. I hope you will know that I...as well as countless other humans share in these times with you. We are all connected together. The timing seems right to share this...being that it is winter and spring is right the around the corner. Link is in my bio. I cherish all of you very much. Peace and love. 3w
  •   redlaver I look forward to hearing this gem @dustinahkuoi 3w

  •   twinmissi This time last year my days were filled with doctor's appts, surgeries new words in my life like stage, treatment, etc. my diagnosis was in Jan my final reconstruction surgery was in April .. I'm a survivor. I love this song and appreciate the meaning. 3w

dustinahkuoi This is a very special picture to me...legendary coach Dean Smith with me and my good friends @mattleroy @mattrampey and Sam Tesh. We were singing at a Chapel Hill High School baccalaureate service that his daughter was attending. He came up to us afterwards, gave lots of compliments and told us that he used to sing in a quartet too. We all talked for a little while longer and then he was gracious enough to take a picture with us. I am grateful for cherished, hometown moments like this with an amazing man on and off the basketball court.
Rest in Peace Coach Smith

dustinahkuoi Today my heart is in Miami with all of the beautiful people gathering to remember and celebrate the life of Reynaldo Borges. Of course I am especially keeping @genevivalavida close to my heart as she mourns the loss of her biological dad. In the little time I got to spend with Racie...I experienced a man full of love, laughter, life and beautiful music. He was always so loving and supportive of mine and Genevieve's relationship and he was so happy about our engagement and future. He treated us like kings and queens every time we came to see him...and his energy was wonderfully contagious.

I love you Racie...I celebrate your legacy and life. May we all have the kind of joy and zeal for living that you did. I am sending my deepest condolences and love to all of his friends and family.
Rest in peace beautiful soul
