30 days ago I started this blog and have written everyday since.
I am blown away from the support I have found here. I was afraid to be open and expected harsh feedback and have found the opposite.
It’s funny to me that many of my core group of friends just don’t know what to say and complete strangers have lifted me up and said the perfect thing.
It makes my heart smile that I have been able to use my artwork in the posts. That in itself brings me to tears because this is two different things that are part me. My simple artwork and my writing that I never knew I was able to do.
Me being raw, real and vulnerable. Me not being afraid to say what’s on my heart. Me not being afraid to let me voice be heard.
It’s embarrassing to admit that you have been codependent. It’s embarrassing to share that you were in an abusive relationship. It’s embarrassing to admit that you made mistakes.
I have learned so much about myself because of writing about it where I have been and because of reading others blog posts. It’s sparks something inside me.
Thank you for reading, liking, commenting and following my journey it means more to me than you could ever know.
I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me. To see what God has planned for me. God does not waste our pain. I already see myself sharing my story at a Celebrate Recovery (CR) meeting. I already see myself leading a CR meeting or step study group. And I also see more in my future. But until that time, I will continue to heal and grow. I will continue to share my story and I will continue to be grateful for the lessons learned from where I’ve been for had I not been there, I wouldn’t be here.
My journey to serenity continues…
