Officially one year ago today I became a statistic, a divorcee, a single mother, a dysfunctional family, a failure.
I have become "me" once again. No more manipulation. No more grooming. Okay, so I'm not 100% "me" yet, but I am on my way there.
It may not have seemed like a victory, however my life is being fulfilled. I have my own home, I have my own car, I pay my own bills...things I was told I would never be able to accomplish.
I will overcome anything that is put in front of me. I am a fighter and will strive to make the best of any poor situations.
I have always been a flexible person. Yet, the journey I have been going through has stretched me thin. I will continue to adjust to the changes that occur in my life.
I am strong in what I do and say. I ask God daily to give me the courage I need so that I can act bravely in my actions.
Not only am I encouraged by my family and friends, but I am inspired by His Spirit.
I am determined to be the best parent I can possibly be. I am determined to forget statistics. I am determined to raise a functional family. I am determined to succeed.
And on this 1 year anniversary of my divorce, please give a shout out to Sober Chick who is celebrating her 1 year birthday of sobriety! Happy Birthday to you, SC!!!
