"I was 29 years old, in a job I didn't love, in a relationship that didn't fit and in a home I wasn't proud of. I had aspirations beyond the situation I was tolerating. So I made the decision that I wanted to be deliriously happy and that meant facing the truth about my circumstances and having some difficult conversations. The unknown is always scary, but walking away from my past- which was binding me to this "half" life is the best decision I ever made. I got a new job, moved from the 'burbs to Dallas into my own place for the first time and started to get to know me! I was afraid I would step out into the world and I would fail (that I wouldn't be able to support myself, that I wouldn't be able to find love, that I wouldn't excel in my career). I am living a life that I am proud of, filled with blessings I dared never to ask for, with an amazing husband and son. Now, I am beyond proud of the life I have created. I love being a wife, mom, volunteering and inspiring others. I want to change people's lives for the better."
