And Then She Began To Climb

Believing in yourself when it feels no one else does sounds like climbing Mount Everest without equipment, experience, or error. I don’t know how many times I had woken up from a relapse wondering how I had fallen to the complete and utter bottom of what I call the “stack” of life. As a child, adolescent, and young adult, I didn’t just succeed; I exceeded all expectations and some. Then one day I just began to fall, almost as if in slow motion and with zero regard of the outcome. Even though we all know it doesn’t happen over night, it sure felt as if my life had become a disastrous and drunken nightmare. It wasn’t until I realized these mountains in my life I had been trying to move, I was meant to climb. And not just climb, but conquer with God on my side. No longer forcing that square peg into that circle hole, I had been given the tools and the strength to end my own suffering. 1.) Acceptance

2.) Letting go of what no longer and probably never served me

3.) Helping others

4.) Patience

5.) Self worth

6.) Self love

7.) Unconditional love

8.) Elise Corinne

9.) Jamie Lynn

10.) My mother

Moving mountains when you were meant to climb them is like brushing your teeth with a mouth full of Oreos, not going to be a successful outcome. And if no one has told you they love you today, I love you, and I believe in you.

Your truly,

Anna
