I have been writing for a few years now and only recently decided to become a Bloggess. Stories might appear out of order as far as dates go and I do tend to ramble a bit. Enjoy yourself or not, I always try to. Anything before September 5, 2008 was a nightmare that I survived, mainly due to my own choices; but does one really have a choice at age 9. Some could say my childhood was not the best and others would say that I had everything a girl could want; it is all in your perspective. I have fond memories and some not so fond and they have all made me who I am today. Or should I say those memories, or ghosts of memories if you will, have allowed me to reach a bottom in my life. A desperation where there was no other option but to die, an actual death because my spirit had died long before; or find a new way to live.
I chose the later. That choice, to walk away from the life I knew for so long was the best decision I ever made. I had hit my bottom. Today my life is beautiful and getting better still everyday. It is a journey of self discovery this path that I am on and there is absolutely no end. I have a few children now, some I do not. I have a few dogs, a cat and 17 chicken’s as well. Yes all of my animals have names and if you follow along in my ramblings you just may catch a few. I have to leave something to the imagination.
What I have found and made a peace with is that I could not have done anything differently any step of the way. My path was chosen a long time ago so that one day I could share it with others. How do I know this? When I look at my grandchildren it is all too clear; if I had made any other choices in my life I would not have them. For that I am ever so grateful.
