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 a 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, 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:
- Never underestimate the power of the Lord.
- Never underestimate the transformation that can occur in a single year.
Happy Anniversary, blog family! 🙂
