As some of my readers know, about a year and a half ago I made the decision to start my life over. I had followed the ideals taught to too many young woman and ended up married to a man I should have never been with. I was miserable and following a path I had no desire to be on. I was depressed and felt stuck for a multiple of reasons. I honestly could not see a way out of the whole I had dug for myself. I wanted to blame others for teaching me wrong, or not helping me to see clearly, but when it came down to it, every choice I made was my own.
One night I snapped. I could not pretend to be happy anymore. The truth spilled from my lips like a river through a dam that had finally gave way. And from that moment I did not stop telling the truth. I began allowing myself to go deep inside my soul. I allowed myself to feel emotions I had gone numb to. And within just a few months I started the slow discovery process of learning who I am and what I actually want in life. Now I smile because I am honoring my true being. I am happy because I know how to say no when something is not right and how to say yes when it is.
