I looked for a place to add this comment to but couldn’t so I decided to make a new post. Hope that’s OK.
How I got to where I am…
Everything that has happened which got me to this point in my life can be traced back to the night I lay down on the floor of my dining room and cried out to God that I was too much of a coward to kill myself and just surrendered myself to Him. I said, “You’ll have to kill me because I don’t have the courage to do it.” That was the beginning of my life being cleansed of everything negative and wrong.
I got up after giving up and stuff started happening, I got a job, I got a cancer diagnosis (but the new job gave me insurance benefits), I was purged of a negative influence in my life because of the cancer (I got my eyes opened of what could happen if I’d gotten what I thought I’d wanted), I got a new attitude and got my education and I got the courage to sell my house, load up my car and come to the Florida Keys without a job and not knowing but 2 people. I had to get rid of some more negative influences and dead end relationships and then I met my wonderful Denis. With him I have experienced unconditional love for the first time in my life.
The final negative in my life, my job, was removed in January and, although the blow to my self-esteem was tremendous, I am using this as an opportunity to finally fulfill my life long dreams of owning my own business and getting my teaching certificate. Work is coming my way without me even advertising, and I will begin classes in August to get my teaching certificate. I am totally at peace and excited about life for the first time in my life.
The epitome of this all is that I joined the Catholic Church at Easter Vigil this year.
My needs for today are met and that is all I need. Thank you for letting me share.
