Let It Burn

I seen a quote today posted by a friend on Facebook; “I set fire to what all I once thought I was, and started to learn who I really am.” I could not relate more to this profound statement, it spoke volumes to me because this is me. I lit that bitch a flame with the hottest coals from the depths of Satan’s layer. I almost burnt my entirety except for a small mustard seed morsel if you will. With this crumb I planted into the depths of healing and allowed myself to let go of hurt I had been holding onto so tightly that my fingers had been bleeding for years along with the deeply hidden internal wounds I began to unleash, little by little. I am still discovering things about myself 19 months later and intend to continue as I work on becoming the woman my creator always intended me to be and the best version of myself. I have my good days and bad days, regardless, they all end with my devoted wife by my side and us both sober.

1.) Change, it’s inevitable, why not make it for the better

2.) Patience

3.) Strength

4.) Knowledge

5.) Compassion

6.) Courage

7.) Unconditional love

8.) Elise Corinne ❤️

9.) Jamie, my wife, my best friend, and my soulmate

10.) My new bosses JF and KV ❤️

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, well then consider me one very strong, badass bitch. Because I sure gave it a good run with the bottle, and I’m giving it a much harder run with recovery.

Oh, and if no one has told you they love you today, I love you.

Yours truly,


Anna
