Rags to Riches to the Real Me: Overcoming Adversity Through a Lifelong Quest for Success and HappinessAuthor: Heather Walton Category: Biography & Memoir, Client Books
Have you ever woken up one day and asked yourself, “how did I get here? “This cannot be my life. This is not how I saw things panning out for me. I don’t deserve this. My life doesn’t seem to have any purpose.” Then, have you tried to think through how to get off the rollercoaster or treadmill that seems to have become your life? Change seems just so hard, doesn’t it? You will eventually start to make excuses about lack of money, responsibilities with children, and judgment from friends and family. You start to tell yourself it’s not that bad, things will get better, and that you’re simply overthinking things. This sends you back to square one, back on the treadmill where you start trudging through life again. Sadly, this is not living or enjoying life; it’s simply surviving.
Every time you hit rock bottom you might recognize that you are, again, in that familiar hole you’ve dug for yourself. You wish to have the strength to step off the treadmill of survival and onto a sparkling new road to follow that leads to far more happiness – the happiness you deserve. But, feeling defeated, destined to go through these constant ups and downs, you continue to bury the dark secrets of your past or present, hiding them from everyone so as not to be judged. Potentially, these hidden secrets are too painful or scary to address, and you want nothing more than to forget them. You may have attempted to face the pain, failed, and now think that there must be something wrong with you. However, everyone deserves happiness, forgiveness, love, and compassion, starting with yourself. Healing is possible.
