Nothing about my life has ever been easy going. I grew up in a very dysfunctional home left with memories of every kind of abuse known to man. Including hard drugs. These memories hunted me for so long. Until the day I put my foot down. Enough was enough. I knew the only way to stop allowing my horrible past to consume me, was to do something about it.
So I started little by little. First with going back to school and continuing my education. I needed to surround myself happiness and love. When it came right down to it, I discovered my passion. Today I am super proud to say I've earned my career degree in wedding planning and I continue to further my education in my field.
Along the way I also threw away my cigarettes. It's crazy just to reminisce with new and better memories. A little over 3 months ago I was almost a chain smoker. And with that success, I began to run again.
I haven't taken any recent pics yet of my progress as of late July / early August but here is a pic of my most recent accomplishments. My goal is perhaps to someday run a marathon. Nothing crazy but, once I rebuilt my health...I'm going to keep challenging myself. Instead of hiding from my past, I'm running towards my future. And I believe I'm just getting started.
