I used to wake up in the mornings and feel the frustration of another day, try to go back to sleep, and try to catch the last moments of the dream that was better than my reality. I felt lost, dissatisfied with life, frustrated by my relationships, and giving up and just accepting the feelings as my reality seemed my only option. Every day was a struggle. The sparkle in my eye was gone and the passion for making a difference in the world was gone.
Take 2! One divorce later, two apartments later, and two jobs later I finally started getting my "me" back. Rebuilding passion, confidence, and trust is never easy. Picking yourself up and starting over takes time and major work. As the saying goes, "Anything worth having is worth fighting for!" I felt at the time I was fighting for my life. I might as well have been dead at that point. All I felt was anger, frustration, and hopelessness. This blog is about my journey. It's still a work in progress but to look back and say "Look how far I have come" and know the growth and healing that has taken place is such a great feeling. I know there are probably a million blogs with amazing stories, but if this helps one person or reaches them than it's a success!
