So as I sit here at the end of the day with a candle lit in a candle holder I made. Looking around at the progress I’ve made to my little home. With my boyfriend here and happy with me. It all is a beautiful life. I feel so comfortable and secure in my decisions and choices. I am truly happy and at peace at this moment. I have the things that matter most and I have them because I chose them. 3 years ago I began a new life on my own. I have to say I’m so thankful for my mistakes and strength to overcome them. I hope I can show just one person that you can overcome tragedy and become a success. No one has to live in the tragedy forever. Thank you to everyone who has been a light for me.
