GROWING through the pain


We are funny, us humans. We grow the MOST through our struggles, pain and challenges in life. However, it is possible for People to change their minds in an instant!  

My struggles:  Being raised in cult, my family and friends shunning me and telling me I would go to hell when I walked away, my parents divorce, my Dad being absent in my life, emotional abusive marriage, 2 miscarriages, my painful divorce from the father of my children, child custody battle, my alcohol abuse, bankruptcy, losing my home. 

What I finally realized is that without all of those challenges I wouldn’t be the F’n AWESOME person I am today.  I have empathy.  I am strong. I am independent. I am a fighter. I never give up. I have so much strength and determination inside. I had to take a moment to be THANKFUL for my struggle. Because it all played a part in shaping who I am now. 

What kinds of struggles have you been through in life?  Have you taken a moment to reflect on your life?  You have the power within yourself to consciously decide who you are. To DEFINE yourself!  What is important to you!  If you are in emotional pain and suffering you cannot be fully present. So decide to change your state of mind.
