One thing is for certain about life, there is a beginning and there is an end, and it's important to get on with life and make the best out of it no matter what's happened to you. I say this with much empathy and understanding.
I started the blog "Wake Up to Live!" in 2008 because I wanted others to wake up to live a life fully and passionately. I didn't want life to pass them by. I was once a sleeper, and I lived life from a knee-jerk reaction not conscious to the reasons of my emotions and behaviors, as well as my choices. I made some sh** arse decisions. I struggled for years living with the repercussion of chronic childhood abuse, incest, sexual assaults, and then later domestic violence. I was plagued with memories but it was also the behaviors that I accumulated from childhood trauma that kept me stuck in a life spiraling downhill. I kept harming myself with eating disorders, rage, depression, and drugs and alcohol. I was consumed with mental chaos and confusion. I couldn’t self-identity. Who was I? I loathed myself with a passionate hate.
I was very aware of time passing me by when I reached my forties, and I knew I needed to take control. And, that's when the work began. Once I began to reflect and wake up, life started to look promising rather than bleak and hopeless. Over time, I found a way to create a person that I wanted to live with, a person that I could respect, and, soon after, I wanted to find a way to share my experiences of waking up and encouraging other to wake up, too, to live life fully.
