What is your story? I was in a very scary situation could have lost everything.
My life before WA
Someone asked me recently to tell my story - I thought I had been sharing a lot in my profile and posts however I considered the request and replied to my new follower... a story I will share with you today in this post. As I wrote my reply, I couldn't help but reflect on the many stories within the numerous profiles I have read since joining WA 2 months ago. I wondered also - Who here actually reads our profiles?
I try to read most peoples profile (I aim to read about 3 - 5 new profiles per day) especially when someone makes an effort to leave a comment and uses my actual name - Tracey. I try to make the effort, search, read people profile, and search for their name, and reply to comments using personal name as often as I can.
You see one thing I have learned here is that you do not have to be anonymous here - we are not alone, we can create personal and professional relationships. We can be honest, we can expect respect, you see here at WA I believe we are all buying into the community..., integrity, protection, from ridicule, harsh judgement, and free from persecution. amongst other things.
My message here today is that YOU are on the right track to secure the future for yourself, your family, your children, and your future...
- It is not about what happens to you but what you DO about what happens to you!
I was in a very scary situation about 15 years ago working full time, expecting my 4th child my marriage was failing because of my husbands gambling problem, I was fighting for my children who had disabilities and learning problems, my health was in bad way having heart palpitations due to anxiety, smoking too much - cigarettes and drinking too much coffee, then if that wasn't enough to deal with - I had a retinal detachment and lost sight in an eye - was so scary going blind... I felt I was loosing and failing at everything...It starts with a DECISION
Out of shear desperation I made a decision... and made some changes. My kids were everything to me I felt I was the only one who had their back 'unconditionally' so I made a decision... to save myself and my children and create a positive future... my reason WHY and my goals included NOT being dependant or reliant on others for my future. to work towards being, emotionally & financially FREE...
Take Positive Action
I gave up smoking cigarettes, cut my coffee to 3 - 4 per day, quit my full time job - for a stay-at-home job, after spending over a year working on my marriage I left my husband, sold our home transferred my mortgage to an old building not one wanted but was big enough for my kids and It had "potential"... I made positive steps forward everyday was never easy I had massive hurdles along the way, but I am a lot closer to achieving my goals...
I have had a second retinal detachment, other health issues, developed AF after phenomena, and had 2 extruded disks was unable to walk for a few weeks and took many months to recover with some residual problems still... I have also made a decision, and taken positive steps continuously towards my goals to achieve.... and have - developed a bricks and mortar business, bought other properties, helped care for my parents who have now passed away, and have been there for my children. I have remarried and our 5th child is now 6 years old, and my husband and I work in our business together achieving and creating a new future for ourselves and our family. Believe take positive action - and you can achieve. This is my husband and I cruising somewhere in Tahiti.
The F#.... Word
My Final word - is find your freedom...personal freedom - financial freedom....
We are thankful and appreciate having found WA, the community here and life is looking good... We are working on a number of projects and one of the things I love is to help others to achieve their dreams and goals. Believe in yourself, surround yourself with positive people who can 'help' you emotionally, and physically when needed... protect what matters, most of all take time...
take time to....GRIEVE - BREATH ... and ACHIEVE!
Face you fears and dare to be different
I follow with interest - thanks for taking time from your busy day to read this I hope you can take just one thing from this to help you move forward in some small way today - cheers Tracey
