Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Updated: Jul 7

I'm home from vacation! I enjoy going on a vacation, but I love being home more. Do you?

Do you live a life you love or one you want to escape from?

I hope it's the first. I hope you answered "Yes!" that you love your life. If you did, I'm happy for you.

However, for many people- they don't. They don't wake up every day feeling excited about a new day. For many (many) years, I didn't enjoy mine. I dreaded going to work. I dreaded driving in traffic. I dreaded coming home to have to cook and clean and do #allthethings. I even dreaded grocery shopping (as a single momma- I didn't have much money).

I came to a point where I knew I couldn't keep living in such a down state— hating my life— feeling like a victim of my circumstances. My life was what it was. Painful things had happened. I wanted something different. I wanted to enjoy my life.

I started on a journey of healing so I could enjoy life.

I'd love to share that I embraced the pain of change and tada everything was wonderful in a short time. But it wasn't.

Even though I wanted things to change- I thought it was the people or circumstances around me that needed to change first. I spent years blaming, complaining, and not accepting my responsibility. I realized I was getting nowhere and needed to stop being a victim and start embracing and living my life.
