This is from my journal from 2001. So many changes were going on. My mother had been recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. I dated a guy who didn’t value or see me (and I allowed it) and most importantly, I started to change and embrace a healthier attitude. I decided to face my demons and dysfunction. It was a tough year of many transitions, but it led me to love. I met my husband that year (after I had done the work to get better and be kinder to myself). Funny how that happens.
Journals are neat because you can look back on them and see your growth. I am so grateful for that rough year in 2001. It gave me the courage to face my issues, which led me to love.
