Starting Over Can Lead To Your Rebirth

September 25, 2011 • By

I have a secret.  I used to be homeless.  As is the case for most, it wasn’t entirely by choice.  However, it was something that I felt had to happen in order for me to start again with a clean slate.  At the time, I literally had nothing but the clothes on my back and an eight month old child in tow.  We were on our own and I was scared.  I’d left everything and everyone that I knew behind. Starting over was frightening, even when it’s something that you know you MUST do.  
At some point in your life you are faced with a choice: a decision to continue on a path that you know (deep down) is detrimental to your well-being or taking another path that leads to sanity.  It’s literally about taking a stand for yourself. I think that we all know people who are quick to stand in defense of others, yet are reticent to fight for their own survival.
