Schulyer. I too had a life changing event in my life. I was in my early twentys, when I literally crashed and burned, and I have the physical scars to
During that time in my life I thought my life was over, and I was praying that it would happen much quicker than it was taking place. The pain, the
fear, the embarrassment, and the lost of everything, in my mind, was just too much to bear. When I didn't die, I was between a rock and a hard place.
Life didn't stop moving, and I had to catch up with it.
It didn't give me much time for a pity party. I was running so fast that by the time I realized I didn't have to run any more, I was just a few steps
from going over the hill. I don't regret any choices I made, though I am sure I would have made some different ones, if it had not been for the
unfortunate event in my life. Not necessarily better ones, just different ones, hindsight being 20/20.
I do know that like you, if it had not been for what I thought was the most disastrous moment in my life, I would not be where I am today, and that
almost all the good things that happened to me in my life, after that event, can be traced back to that very moment.
Sometimes horrible things have to happen before the beautiful things in your life can appear. I am your proverbial Phoenix. Life is full of surprises;
both good and bad.
