To understand the life I was ment to live. I was born with disabilities and was nearly blind. . Instead of giving up I had to fight back now I can run and see..I always wanted to be a writer. So I could write about the world and about the things that is going on within it. Instead I became a poet, an wrote about the abuse I have endure by my ex husband and how I struggled to find my source of strength to fight back. I wanted to be a dancer, So I could express my own pain, and my triumphs. Instead I became ill and struggled with arthritis and fibromyalgia . I wanted to be a chef and a baker. So that I could express my love of food in a elegant and tasteful way. Instead I became a mother of 6 who enjoys life to the fullest as possible,
Yes my life had started on a very complicated path. And it has taken me in many different directions. But I have always came fighting my way back. Why? I feel god gave me choices what I wanted and needed was 2 different things, He taught me with every step I took there was a lesson I had to learn.. So when I wanted to be a writer he made me a poet so i could write about what I have learnt. about being a victim, and about the pain I struggled through of being a battered wife. But also for me to discover my hidden strengths as a woman. When I wanted to be a dancer I was strucked down with arthritis and fibromyalgia. I guess god wanted me to dance my own dance. And when I wanted to be a chef and baker. God thought a family would be perfect for me.
So you see when god puts out a plan for us. It is not to hurt us but to teach us how to live the life we we were ment to live. All those paths that we got lost one and all those branches we tripped on. Were put there to teach us the lessons that god had planned for us.. And for my strength I am better woman today because of what have gone through. And for what I have learnt from my struggles.. Never take the things you wanted in life for granted. because god did give those to you just in different ways..
Ty for reading my story and I hope it inspires you to take a second look at your life and realized your fullfilled your dreams.
