My mom always told me forgiveness is not just for the other person, it’s for me as well. Lately I’ve been having a little trouble in this area. (well…..maybe A LOT of trouble lol) I know all too well that when you don’t forgive someone who wronged you, they have a certain power over you. However, it doesn’t make it any less hard to forgive someone who broke your heart. I’ve made a decision though. I’m going to dig deep down, put my big girl panties on, and tackle this thing head on. I will not let anyone or anything keep me from being truly free. Some serious prayer is in order…………have a goodnight everyone 🙂
I’ve been through a lot hurt and pain but I choose to smile anyway!!
Life is about choices. I must admit, I have made some pretty questionable ones over my 29 yrs. Especially when it came to love. For as long as I can remember, I envisioned meeting the man of my dreams, having a fairytale wedding, etc. You know, the perfect life many of us girls dream about.
Unfortunately, my life turned out to be far from perfect. (Surprise,surprise lol) Before I became a single parent I was married. However, it was FAR from a fairytale wedding and the marriage wasn’t very happy to say the least. My 7 yr old is the one good thing that came from that relationship. When it was over, I was so lost. Didn’t know how I was going get through that heartache. So I did what was the norm for me at that time. To get over him, I found another “temporary fix”. Long story short, I got pregnant again (not by my husband smh) and the father had no desire to be around or there for my baby. So now, here I am a single woman/mother trying to navigate this crazy world and raise two young boys in the process. I’m starting this blog because I want to inspire and uplift all my single women/mothers out there. I want you all to know we all go through some of the same things. Believe me, anything you are going through I’ve probably been there. I am by no means perfect and I certainly don’t have it all together but this is my story and it’s still being written.
