As a little girl I laid in my bed alone. My father had left when I was a baby and my mother could not be there for me. Curled up holding myself with tears streaming on my pillow I laid there night after night. These cries I will never forget, but I never allowed those cries to hold me down. I dreamed and they were big dreams. I dreamed of a place free of harm and full of safety. Where I was smart and intelligent and could create any life I wanted. I went on in life and things got even darker for me as a child.
Have you ever had an experience in your life where you had to dig deep? Where maybe you felt alone? What did you do? I would love to hear your experience and the dreams you have set for yourself.
I was surrounded by evil. I remember being afraid to be in the home I lived in. Fearing harm would come to me in the place I should feel the safest. Drugs and crime swirled around me. This couldn’t be what I was meant to become? Could it? Why was this happening to me? Why did I have to be born into this type of environment? I had all of these questions and more. I saw so much dark around me. Then, I made a choice to believe in my dream. Believe in the dreams I had as a little girl. Believe that I can become more then my past. My past does not dictate my future. I DO!!!!!!
Why???.....Have you ever asked this? Have you ever felt unsafe in a place that should bring security into your life? Do you believe that your past does not dictate your future?
I have overcome so much more then I can even tell you today. I have climbed and dug deep to get to this point. I have dreamed it and believed it, now it was time to trust. At this point I was divorced and a single mother. I left a marriage that I was not happy in. I decided to set us both free. As a single mom there were some struggles I never knew existed. I remember the moment a man told me, “no one will ever accept you with two kids!” This was crippling to me. I cried in the shower alone where no one could hear or see me. I believed him. Well, I believed him for a short time because I have been through way more then someone telling me a lie like that. I decided to trust. Trust that someone awesome would come into my life and love and accept me and my awesome children.
Have you ever had a struggle where you had to dig deep and find the courage to climb out of your situation? Maybe you are married or even divorced and struggling? Or maybe a single mom that feels she has no one?
Leap for it!
Then I leaped with all my heart and soul. I knew I deserved happiness. I deserved to have someone that loves me and my children. So I ran with all my might and jumped off that cliff. I left all doubt and fear on that ledge. Two weeks later this amazing man came into my world. He not only loves me but he loves my children as well. I am no longer a single mother. I am now engaged. I am now a woman that is taking leaps every single day.
