what you are made of

For most of my adult years, it’s been all about survival.  Surviving a brutal first marriage. Surviving long workdays as single mother. Surviving skin cancer.  Surviving losses of lives loved. Surviving  miscarriages.  But just “surviving” is no way to live.  At times I was hanging by a thread.

But about 5 years ago, a complete stranger, but someone of an angel, shared with me her new outlook on life and how it changed her worth entirely. I SLOWLY began applying everything I learned from this brief encounter, and my life could not have taken a more complete turn. I am still so amazed that I had the power within me to change like that & to actually become a happier person. I figured out then that there is NOTHING better in this life than knowing what you are made of.  Literally nothing.

I knew early on that what I possess needs to be shared. Writing this blog has been one of the most joyful things I’ve ever done. I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I wish I didn’t have to sleep so that I could respond to more emails and write more posts!

I receive many kind emails and comments…thankfully.  One reader going through a very difficult time once wrote: “A few days ago, my husband said, ‘What changed in you?’  So I showed him your blog and said, ‘That’s what’s changed. I’ve found someone who is encouraging me to love more, be kinder, be more helpful, even when life is hard.’”

Could there be any better words to hear?  I knew I was doing exactly what I should be doing with this blog. Because maybe you are me 5 years ago, and you need someone to show you a new perspective, just like someone showed me.

I’ve encountered a lot of same challenging experiences that you are. But I’ve also experienced deliverance in ways I never knew was possible.  My husband and I have learned how to be really, really happy & at peace no matter what our circumstances might be.  In sharing these perspectives with you, I hope this blog can be a great resource for anyone interested.  If I can be of inspiration to just one fellow woman, this effort will be worth it.
