Can’t believe it.

One year ago I was an unemployed single mother with an unhealthy dependence on sleeping pills and cheap wine. I felt like I had nothing left to live for.

So I created the Real as the Streets blog as aย desperate attempt to leave some sort of legacy in the world before I ended my life.

Yet, here I am.


This time last year, I angrily told God He could take my life. I meant it quite literally.

However, by the grace of God, ย not only am I still alive. But I’ve never been happier in my life. It’s amazing how a single year can change the entire direction of one’s existence.

I’m not only gainfully employed, I’m happily employed. Recently, I just got a promotion of sorts with a salary that basically doubled.

Two things I learned since the creation of Real as the Streets:

  1. Never underestimate the power of the Lord.
  2. Never underestimate the transformation that can occur in a single year.

Happy Anniversary, blog family! ๐Ÿ™‚
