Welcome to my diary, my journey, as I tripped and crawled through the darkest time in my life. The things within this book spine are extremely raw and exceptionally real. You and I are going to get very close; the details in this book, although oddly general, are incredibly specific. Yes, I realize what I just said and as you read my words you will see just that. As you silently gasp and mentally bitch slap me, please be kind because my story is just thatmy story. It is not any more or less special than yours. In fact the only difference between our stories are the choices we made at each of the crossroads in our lives. For most of my life the choices I made were not based on my happiness but on everyone else's. This book describes what I have experienced in my journey to finding your happiness and never letting it go. Sadly, it took me thirty-six years to find the strength I needed to get out of a toxic situation and self-view and find someone who is worthy of my awesomeness. Thirty-six years to shatter the negative foundation I had built and begin the process of building a new foundation. Only this foundation will be built on strength, confidence, and above all, happiness. So take a minute or thirty and sit with me for a while. You never know what you might find out.
