I have been working on my story for more than 20 years. I've finally decided to sit down and finish it, You will find in reading it that there have been many ups and downs and things that have happened to the side. I will be talking about issues involving losing a child and grandchild, sexual abuse, molestation, family issues, online dating, Army Life and the struggles of single parenthood. In our lives we all deal with these types of issues and many more. It took me this long because every-time I would start to write and re-visit something, it would all come crashing back and be too overwhelming to think about it again, so I would stop.

I would then try again and stop. I have had many times in my life when I know I have made decisions based upon the emotional state I was in at the time. I would look back and say, why in the world did I do that. Then I go backwards and think about, what was going on with me at the time, and it would become clear. If I am dealing with issues or having an emotional meltdown at the time, my decision making may not have been the best. I can look at myself and admit that.  One other thing I have been doing for years is to take a mental look at my circle. It does not matter if you have known someone 1 day or 20 years. You have to take inventory and make sure that the people you surround yourself with are there for positive reasons. If you find that they are not, move on.

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy!

So many people will blame a million people for the stumbles in their life and not take a moment to look at the common denominator in each situation, which is You! 

When you have a multitude of life issues and things that have happened to you, sometimes you need to talk to someone. One of the goals I am hoping in writing this book is to begin the conversation about considering help from a family counselor or therapist. Over the years many times I have enlisted the help of family counselors (with my children) and a psychologist to talk about personal issues with my myself. 

Talk to someone, anyone that you can have a conversation with and who will listen.
