Hi Monica. I am home from my trip. Happy to be getting back into a routine. I’m trying to tackle the last bit of paperwork and clutter. A week or so worth. Then there is my entire basement full of clutter next. I’ve been on this journey for 11 years in total. I am so close to feeling organized and ready for the next chapter of my life. I plan on making the most of it. I think back to the beginning of my journey, that first year or two were transforming in so many way. I remember this as I am watching you go through these improvements in health, thanks to the improvements in job situation! You have spent quite a while taking some pretty hard steps before this transition. Stopping gambling. Getting help in many ways. Telling your family. Doing your piece for the film on poverty. I picture you having hung on a ledge, with little shifts upward. Finding a toe hold here or there, maybe a little twig of a branch. Those oh so hard steps. Now you are hoisting yourself up to the little foot path. You are climbing out of the valley of darkness into the light of the sun. You are reminding me of what a gift that vision can be. Keep focused on your recovery Monica. I’m so thrilled and proud for you. Wohooooo! Reap the rewards sister, you have put in the work.

P.S. I did a little post above in response to your post a few days back. You asked a question and of course I could not resist giving you my version of a possible answer
