The group that helped me from my yesterday

Friday, November 11, 2011


 Hi everyone ....I hope everyone had a wonderful week ....My week was great as usual I got out to some thrift stores and we heard from Canadian Immigration ...Mike's application was transferred to L.A so moving to Canada is getting closer everyday...This Friday I wanted to tell you about a wonderful online support group that helped me so much when I finally got away from my abusive marriage ......Some may be asking what this has to do with me re-inventing myself ...Well I feel like unless you go back and look at what helped you or shaped you to get to where you are now then re-invent can never happen .........The group is Women Against Domestic Violence or WADV ....It's an online support group that a wonderful lady Melissa started back in 2000 or 2001 ...I am so proud to be associated with this group..I am not active in the group like I was but it will always hold a special place in my life ... Melissa and I have become best friends and we still are there for each other to this day and we have never even met but someday.....After you read the poem I wrote about this group check on the link below it and see what an amazing group this is ..............................................

Women who have survived
We are a group of ladies who have won against all odds in our life
We have taken back our independence and ended our years of strife
We have lived a life that would have made most fall along the way
But we are fighters and survivors that’s why we are here today


We lived a life of control and endured more then anyone should have to bear
But we all decided to take that first brave step to freedom to finally break clear
Most people don’t understand us and why we stayed so long in a life of pain
But please try to understand how anger clouded the vision of what we had to gain


So we are here today some tattered bruised and so weary from the fight
But still we hold our head up high knowing we are finally free from the night
So let us be there for you and maybe together we can make this world see
Angels with broken wings and tattered souls can still fly proud and free

This is the 4th step in re-inventing

4. Now that you have a vision of your future, break it up into workable tasks.
What do you need to do—every day—to create that vision? Look for work? Meet new people? Search for a place to live in your chosen town? Make it specific. Make a list of everything you need to do and a schedule for when you’ll do it. Then do it and commit to keep doing it, one day at a time.

“But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one's life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your favourite fountain? And then to do it again the next day?”
