August 13, 2012


For the past four years, it seems that my family has been facing one struggle or hardship right after the other. We no sooner get through one hurdle, and we are immediately faced with another. It seems like for the last 22 years, since my husband and I met each other, we have been faced with so many different obstacles, and there never seems to be an end in sight. The last four years have been the worse. Let me back track a little bit, and tell you what all we have faced in the last four years. 

First my mother was diagnosed with cancer, and I had to take a leave of absence from my job in order to take her to her radiation and chemotherapy treatments. She even moved in with my family while she was undergoing treatment. Shortly after she moved back to her own house, my back was injured which resulted in me having to give up a job that I truly loved which was working in a juvenile detention center. Due to my back injury, I could no longer participate in physical restraints which was a requirement for the job. This back injury caused me to be out of work for nine months which negatively affected our financial situation. However, in September of 2009, I got an awesome job working in a daycare center. Two months later, my husband was diagnosed with cancer. Six months into this job, I was forced by my manager to quit, because of the time I wanted to take off when my husband was to undergo his major surgery due to the cancer. Then last summer on August 15, I totaled my car. I was very lucky to walk away from that accident; however, once again our finances were affected. The car insurance would not cover the total expense of the car, so my family had to pay six months worth of car payments until our car, which we didn't have any longer, was completely paid off. Then fast forward to this summer, and we are facing remodeling our bathroom which was not in our budget, and extreme financial destruction from the past several years of negative struggles and hardships.

Now, some people will read this and say, "You don't have anything to complain about! You are blessed!" They are right! I am blessed, and there is one thing I am not going to do anymore! What is that one thing? I am not going to complain any longer, and I am refusing to accept negativity into my life any longer! My family has had enough! I am releasing the negativity! I am releasing the struggles! I am releasing the hardships! No longer will I accept this negativity into my life!

If you are facing hard times, struggles, hardships, and negativity; maybe, you need to release these into the Universe. Let them go and do not accept them back as part of your life! Release them and watch your life change!
