Yesterday, my life hit rock bottom. My account is overdrawn. Me and my kids live in one bedroom of my mothers house. Our bed is a pallet/cover/mattress on the floor. My mom’s house is directly behind the house my now ex and I were buying for 10 years but lost thru foreclosure after we separated……Mom’s health is on the rocks…..lash biz been on back burner for a few weeks…..now my other gig–housecleaning–not really able to do it cause no babysitter to watch kids… barely getting by like this…my monthly income was a little over $1000 but due to many recent factors has dwindled down to almost half that. My life has been in shambles for a while. My babe—the man Ive come to love over the past year and 8 months seems to be gone now from our convo yesterday….idk. Can’t really be mad at him cause he and I both have been dealing with rough situations for a while now. Not getting child support from my ex nor my little girl’s dad. I rarely cry but I shed a few yesterday.
But then I wiped my eyes.
Sometimes we can become so complacent dealing with different circumstances and situations in our lives……
I wiped my eyes.
Yesterday is in the past.
Today, I am actively changing my life. I’m cooking again….something I always used to love to do.
I am excited about what is transpiring.
I see light at my tunnels end.
I know I will be able to help my mom get her health in order.
Someday….I don’t know when, I will put her in a new house.
She says she’s not giving up yet.
I will put me and my kids in a new house. My children will have their own rooms and beds.
I HAVE PURPOSE. AND IT WILL BE FULFILLED.
Looking forward to sharing more about my transformation soon.
