What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger or GO MY LIFE!

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
I didn't believe that for a long time, but now I know it's true. After two years of riding a brutal and unpredictable emotional roller coaster, I can finally say, "I'm happy, free, and stronger than ever." HIP HIP HOORAY! Or as my sister, Laurie, would say, "Go My Life!"

Life is once again beautiful, fun, exciting, and filled with great possibilities. I'm currently:
  • Pursuing my music. (Again!)
  • Taking yoga classes. (*OM*)
  • Going back to school for Criminal Justice. (Look out, bad guys!)
  • In a healthy and happy relationship. (Thanks, honey!)
  • Taking piano lessons. (Learning how to read music - YIKES!)
  • Doing a Communications Course through Landmark Education. (Transformational work is good for the heart, mind, and soul.)
  • Finishing edits on my latest book!!! (Can't wait to query again!)

My "new" piano!

My advice to anyone going through a difficult time: 
 Me w/some people who love me: Mom, sisters Michelle, Sharon, Laurie, & Dad.
  • DON'T GIVE UP on yourself or on life. (Don't let the bastards get you down!)
  • LEAN ON PEOPLE who love you. (It makes them feel better, too!)
  • LOVE YOURSELF & YOUR LIFE. (There are brighter days ahead!)
  • When you're going through hell, KEEP GOING. (per Winston Churchill)
  • HANG IN THERE long enough to get past the pain. (You'll be amazed at how much better you'll feel.) 
  • You will GET THROUGH IT. (And life will be better than ever!) 
We all experience pain, suffering, loss, anger, jealousy, sadness, and grief. Maintain your dignity and live life with grace. Remember, you are beautiful, precious, loved, and deserve the best life has to offer. If you believe in yourself and follow your heart, you will not be disappointed.

LIFE CAN AND WILL GET BETTER! (I swear, it's true!)
