Being grateful to be free

Being grateful to be free..

 

Yesterday I woke up and was on my way to a job with a client that I love and on my drive I couldn’t help but think of my life as it is now.

 

I have a beautiful home I never thought I would have, I have 2 amazing girls who I am so proud of.

I have a business

I started from the ground up, that has grown and went in all kinds of different directions I never thought it would. I have a small group of family and friends that I know have my back, no matter what.

 

I do what I love every day writing this blog and interacting with the best clients ever, how amazing is that? How amazing is my life?

 

I started to cry… because I am so grateful for everything I have in my life but for most of all because I am free… for me these last four years being divorced have been the best thing that has ever happened to me.

 

I am thankful each and every day that I am no longer there, that I can come home to a home filled with peace and love. Where there is no fighting, put downs, name calling and where I don’t have worry about walking on eggshells, making sure I am saying the correct thing so not to set him off.

 

Yes, there is not a day that I don’t open my eyes and the first thing I say is thank you God.

 

It is hard? Doing this by myself, oh hell yeah!

But it’s worth all the 14 hour days I have to put in for my freedom. I love me…and I love my life, my girls see me happy, they know I love them unconditionally and that I am always here for them.

 

They know I will never put a man before them again, they see what true strength is, what hard work is, what a undying faith looks like and hopefully they will do the same later on for their own  children.

 

Yes, I am so very grateful,

I do not take this life I have now lightly nor do I take it for granted. I know first hand how short life is, how precious it is and I don’t intend to waste another minute of it.

 

I know how truly blessed I am and thanks is always on my tongue, my testimony is always out there to inspire and encourage other people, especially women who where or are in the same situation as I was.

 

I am a standing testament that you can be living your best life, you can change, you can be happy, truly happy even without “things” and lots of money.

 

That you can have faith even through the worst storms, even when you thought you got this, even when you thought this is your season, even when the rug gets pulled out from under you, over and over again. Even when you cry out didn’t I endure enough?

 

I am here to tell you to never give up, to stand tall, to raise your arms, to laugh in the rain, to pray through the storm, to know you got this…you got this…you got this!

 

So today my friends, step out in faith, be grateful, give thanks, never take a moment for granted. Make the change, you can never imagine the life that is waiting for you…if you just believe.

 

“Be the change you want to see”

 

“And just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
