I’m so Grateful

In my last blog, I wrote about how I lost my dream job due to an accident at work, which I have now come to terms with, but I wanted to write about a followers kind comment to that blog that reminded me and what I should have written in that blog about.

The follower reminded me that “I’m writing and that’s important.” and I’m so glad they wrote this Thank you to this follower. I have debated on what to do with my life for 9 years now. I can never return to work due to my health, and I was getting frustrated with myself. I didn’t want to sit around doing nothing, I have tried many things, but my health gets in the way.

I had been thinking of writing a blog for the last 3 years, but I was fighting with my own demons (I still do, but I’m learning to fight them back). I was in one of my darkest moments then, our family had just lost someone to Domestic Violence which sent me into the biggest spiral of my life. I didn’t Know if I was going to get through it, but I’m here.

Then only last year I lost someone who was like my brother, he has been a part of my life since I was 6 to suicide, that guttered me. After this was when I decided to write, I wanted to let people in on life. I had been through so much in my life, I had so much going on, I couldn’t go back to work, and I wanted to let people know they’re not alone.

I am so grateful to be able to write, I never thought I would be here doing this, but so glad I am. If I can just make one person’s day then I have done my job and that’s all that matters.

Hope you enjoyed.

  1. Words are magic. They can heal you and others. I understand the need to share. What is the use of learning something if you don’t share it? God has brought you to a new chapter in life, and so keep writing. I am inspired by you!
