She further revealed how she had some retrospection during her birthday month and confessed she felt "strong.. Mostly.. But still lost at times." Getting deeper, she added she still had "moments of sadness" while healing. The "Stomp The Yard" actress, however, optimistically revealed that she was "trying to figure out God's plan knowing all that He did.. But also still trusting Him- completely…"

Ending her moving message with some words of motivation, she encouraged her followers and anyone going through a tough time to know and believe they are "worthy."
